[Dixielandjazz] Flirting With The Audience

Last weekend we played a walk-around gig at a local golf club family fair.
We got a few curious and positive vibes from the audience.  One young girl
was watching my sousaphone with some fascination...so I stopped playing
briefly and asked her if she knew what song we were playing.  She said no.
So I told her, "I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby".

She must have been warned about lecherous old men, for she turned and
walked away without any further comment.

Just got me to thinking, we were playing to an audience even whose parents
don't know the songs.
