This was the first visit to this speciall needs school in Paramus. This group included many wheelchairs, and one on one care. The band and I have to find a fine line between too much talk, volume, dancing, etc. and still involve as many of the kids in as many ways as possible. The teachers were right there, getting the kids to move, vocalize, touch, clap, dance. The music finds a way.
The band really has to think on its feet to adapt to these conditions, and the lads are true pros. It works, we have fun and get paid, and we bring a lot of joy to some folks who really need it in their lives. (Not in that order…)
To Bethlehem for an Allentown gig tomorrow.
