Flemtone Posted March 3, 2003 Share Posted March 3, 2003 So we're playing an old Irish bar this past Friday, and the first song of the last set is "Dixie Chicken" a la Little Feat. We're jamming away, and we come to the piano break. It usually entails Robbie (our most excellent pianist) losing his mind for about 5 minutes while the drummer and I keep a back-beat happening. All of a sudden, drums and bass drop out completely, Robbie stops playing for a couple of seconds, the audience thinks something is wrong and, to a completely quiet house, Robbie begins to play the intro to "It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" and the place erupts in cheers. I start to sing the lyrics, and am joined by everyone in the place. Andy and Billy (guitarists) are staring at us, Orlando (drums) has a big smile on his face, and Robbie and I bring it home. When we're done, everyone's on their feet applauding and cheering...so we dive back into Dixie Chicken as though nothing unusual happened. The only difference...for about two minutes, everyone in the bar was five years old again. Word. -Tim from Jersey Play. Just play. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
