I was able to perform today at the America on Wheels Museum in Allentown today, unlike a lot of my fellow performers who lost out due to the snow later in the day. The snow started as I headed out and things were fine for my 11:30 am show.
This was my first time at this museum and it is pretty cool: fire trucks, old racing cars, hybrids, vintage cars from the 20’s, 30’s, etc. I got a warm welcome from the staff including an older gent who remembered me from some local school gigs when he was a custodian in Catasauqua. There were actually a number of retired men who obviously loved automobiles.
We gathered in the North wing and it filled up with families, granddads and dads, moms and a 4 year old’s birthday party, so I had folks to work with. I mixed holiday material with my regular stuff, passed out red reindeer noses, and we danced, sang and carried on.
It was a pleasant gig with one grandpop thanking for doing a good job. It was my first indoor gig this week so I was thankful for the warm climes today.
Tomorrow, Brookside CC’s Breakfast with Santa with new snow on the ground.
