Sunday 4th April 2010 - The Kirkland Bar, Methil

Another new venue for me, but not one I haven't been in before.  After my experience at the Bayview Bar the last time I was a bit apprehensive about appearing on a Sunday afternoon before the karaoke. I find that your regular karaoke crowd are getting ready to sing themselves, and are not keen to see a singer beforehand.  Having said that, I am happy to be working, so there you go.

The first two sets were quite difficult for me, as the crowd were small and hadn't warmed to me yet - it happens everywhere. I don't know what people expect when they see me for the first time, but as a rule as soon as I've been at a venue once, they are asking when I'll be back.  I'm not your stereotypical spangly singer who does ballads all night - in fact I'm never happier than when I'm doing a bit of Deep Purple, Bon Jovi and Kings of Leon.

I must also say hello to the fabulous Steph, who does the job herself and was having a well earned night off.  If you get the chance to see her at your local, I'd recommend going along.
