Played at the Camrose Resort Casino

Myra and I (Fundamental Things) played at the Camrose Resort Casino on May 9th and May 10th. We had a good time!

This was the first time playing a gig at a casino. This one in Camrose is really new, and it is really nice. Smoking is not allowed in there, which of course is nothing but great. Nice, clean air.

Each of these evenings, we played between 7:30 and midnight, which is longer than we usually do. It wasn't a problem though, we have plenty of songs in the backpack. We just needed to dig through them all.

Our repertoire has material from many different sources. We have old country tunes, rock, blues, jazz, ballads, roots, etc. Quite a few people came, and it seemed they really enjoyed the show.

I find it's quite tiring to play for so many hours. At the end of the night, I was pretty pooped out. You wouldn't think it's so much work to just stand there and play and sing, but it is. There's a lot of concentration and hopefully inspiration at work, and that takes it's toll on your body and mind after a few hours.

We hope to go back and play more gigs there in the future. It's a real nice place to play at, and the crowd response was good.
