The thing that keeps me doing this is the idea that being a micro celebrity is probably more fun than the real thing except that there’s no money in it. Ha ha
Whereas a real celebrity might get thousands writing in to his blog …i get about one…..and that one person is more often than not my buddy who writes in to make it look like i have mail. Ha ha.
I heard a story about a real celebrity who used to be loved by millions. And how she would break down and cry some days when the postman passed her by.
“So what keeps people going when the machine lets them down?”
Well. It comes back to that one person who writes in. If that happens it can make your day. Please make our day!
And thanks to all of you who have come to any of the Luke & Friends concerts. Thanks also to Marcus Sellwood, Basant and the Professor; Duncan Gillies and Angel for playing at these shows. Pic below is from last weekend. More pics to come soon.
The next show is at Minnie St November 26. This time you can all get to see it (all one of you. Ha ha!) Its gonna be filmed and you can view the highlights in the comfort of your own phone/pc. More details coming soon so keep an eye out.
You see it’s not about being “famous” its more about using technology to share ideas-emotions-rants and music. In this era everybody can be famous but what do we wanna SHARE.
Tell me please what YOU wanna share. Hop on board this micro machine!
Thanks to Clive wrote in about the last gig below…
A happy punter writes in
Last week on the evening of Saturday 22nd October at the Old Folks Association hall Ponsonby a special little entertainment event was taking place. The concert was a Luke Hurley and Friends gig, and what a surprising, varied and satisfying event it was. For a modest fee the audience were treated to a range of musical styles and skilled musicians.
Entertainment ranged from Lukes wonderful songs and innovative guitar work, delta blues played with passion and high energy,contemporary original acoustic songs and a memorable East meets West Indian and European fusion complimented by expertly interpreted classical Indian ragas played by an officianado of this form.
The whole quality experience was enhanced by the nourishing home cooked food for sale and the ambience that resulted giving the night a well rounded successful outcome. If everyone in the enthusiastic audience went away as satisfied as me, then all l can say there must a lot of satisfied punters.
Thanks to Luke and friends and we look forward to many more satisfying gigs in the near. Watch this space with expectation. Grateful punter Clive Bartleet.
