Fifteen Minutes of Fame...

The King of Clubs Pride Kick-off was fun. We made some new friends, including "Bosco" of 104.9, who was impressed by the group and what we do.
We wrapped up the evening with the "Hawaiian Number" and got a good chunk of the audience up on stage doing cheesy hula with the rest of us.
A great start for our new "Second Fridays" format, where we mix the entertainment sets in with the DJ dancing.

Diamond John encouraged me to bring a number to do it in his set at the festival Saturday, so I brought my music along. Then it turned out that several of his regular performers couldn't be there, so I got to help him fill the entire 45 minute set with just two other people. I ended up doing 5 songs in all on the main Pride Stage (actually half of his show)!

Afterwards someone asked for my autograph -- that was a first, and always good for a singer's ego :-).

It turned out that I helped sell the winning ticket in the big Pride raffle, so we hung out with the winner, a cute guy from Chicago named Bill. We caught drumsticks from Pansy Division and got them autographed. That was cool, too, because my brother Swirly knows the band members and so I got a slightly different assortment of signatures than I would have otherwise...

Went to dinner and then we crashed. Hard. Time for bed so we could get up in time for the parade.

More later....
