My worst experience woukld be the time I was performing in front of 3000 people in Atlanta, doing "Georgia on My Mind," and I inhaled a fly through my nose; it came out still alive in my throat. Beleeve it or not, it actually (and thankfully!) flew out of my mouth as I was singing the bridge. I still don't know how I resisted the urge to hack it out in the middle of the song...and I don't want to think about what I would have had to do had it not flown out on its own.
The Top of the Mark In San Francisco has great acoustics because of all the glass that surrounds you on all sides (not to mention a gorgeous view everywhere you look). I also loved having that as a weekly gig for the last two years. Burgundy Blues Jazz Club in Anderson, SC is probably my favorite venue right now (yeah, I know, can you believe that Anderson, SC has something like that?). Cindy Whitfield, the lady who created it, sunk half a million dollars into it and the place is gorgeous. Not to mention fabulous acoustics and house-wired sound! And the crowds are so nice it's just a joy to play there. I look forward to seeing the jazz scene in the southeast expand solely due to Cindy's dedication towards that end.
