Every once in awhile we get to perform in a non-traditional venue. I like the term “non-traditional venue”, it’s so descriptive, isn’t it? It could mean anything from Aunt Addy’s drawing room to a Pot Belly’s to a college lecture hall and quite a few more that I can think of and performed in or at.
In this case, I’m talking about the title="Website for the AHR Expo 2012" href="http://www.ahrexpo.com/" >AHR Expo 2012 coming up Monday through Wednesday for title="Website or Taco, Inc." href="http://www.taco-hvac.com/" >Taco, Inc. at McCormick Place. Now you might think that’s a strange place for an a cappella quartet to sing, but it’s a great time and a great gig. We get to interact with people all day, sing for them, talk to them and just be fun and a bit goofy and we get to stretch too. We re-lyric a song and we dress in themed costumes and work the booth. We meet and greet and talk with people and then we sing for them, which is usually a surprise to the people. And the most unexpected thing is, it’s really intimate. Every performance is new and different and in the moment. It can’t be any other way, in a cavernous convention hall. The point of focus is ever changing and it’s a fun challenge to keep that focus.
What will we be dressed like this year, you ask? Well, I’ll try and get some pictures and maybe a tweet or two while at the convention. and if I don’t get any while at the convention, I’ll post some after the convention.
Better yet, if you find yourself at the convention, come and take a picture with us, we’ll be at Taco, Inc. booth, booth 5400 and hard to miss.
Here’s a video of what last year’s Expo was like. And this year promises to be just as fun.
Oh, one last thing. I don’t really have an Aunt Addy and I don’t know anyone who has, so I’ve never sung in her drawing room. Just wanted to let you know.
