The Democratic and Republican conventions are over and the Western Arts Alliance is done for the year as well. I didn’t get a chance until now to listen to the speeches, I must say the best orator was hands down, Bill Clinton. A superior speaker and he had the entire audience in the palm of his hand.
I was lucky enough to also see a speech he gave when Sonny Rollins got the Kennedy Center Awards, he left his written speech at the table and talked off the top of his head, all about his conversation he had at the dinner table with Mr. Rollins. They share the love of Jazz music and the ability to play a saxophone, Mr. Rollins has more musical talent than President Clinton, but a love of the music is one of the things they share.
Anyway, I am now headed to the Midwest Arts Conference on Tuesday…another wonderful experience awaits me this week and I am excited!!
Talk to you when I get back!Post Tags: Agents, Booking, Democratic Convention, Jazz, Lisa Lindsley, MAC, managers, Midwest Arts Conference, Politics, Republican Convention, Singing, Western ARts Alliance
