We had about 20 people, which was what I expected. Heather, Ben and their drummer John were wonderful. They also understand about performing in a small space. The music was at perfect volume for the venue, which is an achievement.
In addition to museinred, the people I recognized who were there were gorgeousgary and the_sheryl, and starmalachite and stevemb. It was great seeing them as we will miss Balticon this year on account of Shavuot. Altogether we had about 20 or so, which was what I expected based on replies. Some were local SCA, the rest were fans of Heather from their mailing list.
The music was a total blast, and hanging with Heather, Ben and John before and after the concert was no end of fun. We finally kicked everyone out at about 10:30 or so but we continued to finish a little beer and cider while Heather and I swapped songs (her) and stories (me). Which led to the highlight of the evening.
Heather asked me to perform with her at Pennsic!
I'll be contributing a brief set (8 minutes approx) to Heather's Midnight Madness concert. w00t! w00t! Fun does not begin to cover it.
I will say that those rare occasions when I actually get to listen to performances and do the bardic thing remind me that I need to keep making time to try to have a life outside of work.
