Jeff, welcome to the Café!

As someone who's performed all over the world, what has been your toughest venue to perform in?

Greetings Craig, and all....

In the mid-80s, I did an Italian disco tour. It was "the tour from HELL!" Let me explain; each night of the tour, I had to perform in different situations, often surrounded on all sides. Other conditions I performed with a plexiglass dance floor above me with everybody looking straight down. In another disco, I had a clear stage and people were looking directly up! Due to the nature of the tour, I never had any idea what I would walk into, five times a week. The audiences were often drunk and unruly, and had never seen an act like mine before.... It was by far the most difficult situation I have encountered...

One of the lessons I've learned is to always carry a six foot square of silk to put behind me as an emergency backdrop, if there is a mirror. I also learned to "turn up the volume" and make the magic happen, and not to get caught up in complaining. The show must go on!

Rolling with the punches,

Jeff
