The buzz

There is something about sitting in a large room, with people running around on and around stage, fixing things. The room is buzzing, with black t-shirted techies testing monitors, plugging cables and adjusting mic stands. The musicians are on stage taking turns sound checking their instruments. And behind the scenes a whole other world of preparations are going on. Lights, hair, make-up, props, warming up. We’re just waiting – as usual everything is behind schedule and people are stressing.

I’ve heard so many people – including myself, might I add – complaining about all the waiting involved in performances and recording sessions, but even though it can be a bit of a pain in the butt sometimes, I am loving it. The buzz. The nerves. The waiting. The knowing that in a little while I will be up on that stage, bathed in light, singing/playing my heart out.

And aren’t those the little moments we live for…?
