Another surprise for me was how well Jersey Boys did in Tulsa. The music was spectacular, but the language was not tolerable for the Bible Belt - but no limit on F Bombs didn't run off those enjoying the music.
Paul McCartney never has a problem playing to a full house for multiple nights.
The embarrassing Oooops situation for me was just before HS Graduation. I played tenor sax in a school jazz band and was invited (along with a friend who played Alto Sax to try out for a band that played at Shadow Lake over the summer. My friend tried out and joined the band. I had to pass because I was already committed fo play in the local little theatre summer production. The wonderful young lady I was dating had also committed to the play.
My friend had a great summer and stayed with the band throughout college.
The Band? David Gates and the Shadow Lake Eight
