Curtain up, spotlight on! Derek and I performed Tom Lehrer's "The Masochism Tango" as the opening number -- and I performed a solo number as Garth Brooks for his hit "We Shall Be Free" -- in order to look just like Garth (photo on the left), in between numbers I shaved off my beard and moustache down to stubble! I seemed to get a very good response from the crowd!! People were hootin & hollerin! Not bad for my first stage performance other than karaoke. The biggest difference? I was dressed up as the singer, and I interacted with the crowd, rather than just standing on a stage.
We raised quite a bit of money for MassEquality, which was the point of the whole show to begin with! We should have a grand total next week when the ICMA Treasurer gives his report... The court went out for dinner after the show. It was a fun evening for all of us.
