This one goes down in the books as "the gig where we broke the piano."
I wish I could say it was something glamorous: pounding out a Bonnie Raitt tune and getting carried away, knocking the piano off the stand. But no. The $%&# stand simply collapsed under the piano as we were setting up. The piano came crashing down on the sharpest part of the stand, which sliced through the back. Several keys no longer function.
With the help of a Cabernet Franc, I managed to not burst into tears. We proceeded with our show minus the piano songs. Good thing I play more of our songs on guitar! We had a good room full of people, and the gig went well apart from the disaster. We hope to be back!
