BNL, Music and Me

It's Tuesday -- I think -- and BNL, me and various others -- roadies, other bands, fans, buddies of fans who didn't know what they were really getting into, and a lot of Carnival cruise employees with funny looks or big smiles on their faces are parked in the bay of Grand Cayman.

The music has been amazing! There's been a lot of sitting in by musicians in almost every band's performances. The joy on the faces of the pure musicians is wonderful to see.

It's fun for them to get to play and spend time with each other -- that just doesn't happen in real life or when they are touring. (It's like us at MouseFest!!!!)

I've rubbed elbows with Kevin, Ed, Andy, Jim and Joe Pisapia from Guster. It's almost like we're friends! At first it was surreal, but now it seems normal to chat with them.

That's what's cool about Ships and Dip. It works because of BNL and the kinds of fans they have -- a lot of Canadians, some Europeans, and a lot of really devoted Americans.

That's my gushing for today -- leaving soon for bingo with some band I've never heard of!

(Oh, by the way Team Voice pals, I do hit the gym every morning, and so far we've been busy during most meal times, which limits intake!)
