PLEASE everybody, keep your fingers crossed; QG is up for a gig in Westport on St. Patty's Day!
Erm, never mind. Asshat wanted to pay us something like $200 to play on St. Patty's day and said, "there's no parking in Westport." Um, DUH, asshole; that's why we said we needed one because we have a van with the sound system that you insisted we bring! He already had 4 bands booked for around $600; can I tell him that he's getting what he's paying for?
I'd rather not work than work for peanuts on the highest paying day for Celtic bands. At least we got a nice "we've already got a band booked" from another bar in Westport.
Damn, I was really looking forward to it. Current Mood: excited

Celtic music awards nominations...
Marc's doing it again. marcgunn
of the Brobdingnagian Bards, who works so tirelessly and wonderfully at marketing Celtic music and musicians, and who puts out wonderful Podcasts of Renaissance Festival music, has announced the nomination process for next year's award process.http://www.renaissancefestivalmusic.com/awards/
So, go nominate your favorite Renaissance Festival acts and musicians. And yes, I'm cross-posting this. And yes, this is a shameless plug to get you to nominate "Queen's Gambit"! Thanks to our many friends, we were in the Top 10 for last year's awards and would absolutely love to repeat that this year!
Go...and then once the nominations are up...go vote!
Thanks muchly! Current Mood: busy

Queen's Gambit's fans in the vicinity...we've set up a very last minute performance tomorrow night at the Gypsy!
Chris J., Erin's sweetie and mad geni, er, head of Commedia Sans Arte, whom whose of you from OKRF know, had the brilliant idea to get in a public performance with Erin before KC so she can get the first-time jitters out of the way.
So QUEEN'S GAMBIT will be playing at the Gypsy, starting at 8:30ish, and it's at the corner of Cincinati and Cameron...so, y'all please come, ya hear?
....I can't believe I just said that...
OH, yes and would somebody please post this to the Gypsy Coffee LJ group and I'll post it to the QG yahoo group, ok?
It's sounding good in rehearsal!

Hi, my name's Gabi. *waves*
Well it all started here on LJ, I met a woman who lives in the greater Dallas area. I moved here to Waco and didn't know anything about local faires. She had posted about performing at Scarborough, and I decided I had
to go. She was playing with QG, and their music was amazing. I fell in love and bought both cd's after that very show.
I don't really remember how I became a Queen's Gambit fan.
I remember Bruce singing Loch Lomond at Boare's Heade Feaste.
I remember Lady Jacqueline hiding behind my hoopskirt.
I remember Deshara grape diving down my bodice
But I can't remember the first time I actually heard them perform as a group.
It was at Excal this year that I finally got to sit and listen to a full show, and now I catch at least one every weekend at faire.
I'm curious to hear how others became introduce to their music.
