Be Ready!

The Monday night show at The Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar is called the Corey Mac Show.  They performed four songs to open the night and were phenomenal.  (You can find him on Instagram and Facebook).

Local musicians come in, sign up on a sheet on the stage and do not know when their name will be called to perform. 

Corey Mac puts them in random groups and calls them to the stage.  They then have a few minutes to get on stage, tune, decide together what song they will play, click it off, and away they go, doing 3-4 songs in their 15 minute set.

The musicians have to be ready.  They do not know when their name will be called, but they have to be ready. 

They have to know how to play, have an already established repitoire of music in their head ready to perform and then collaborate with others to make the music happen.

They have practiced, prepared, put the time into their craft and are ready for their name to be called.  They were amazing. 

How about you?  What dreams do you have?   Are you ready for your name to be called?  If there is something you want to do have you put the time in?  Day after day have you worked to be better? 

Too many people want the bright lights but aren’t willing to do the work alone, at odd hours, and do it consistently when others won’t.

Are you ready? 

You don’t know when your time may come but have you done the work that needs the be done beforehand?

Have you signed up to go on to your stage and step into the lights when your name is called?

Whatever it is you want, do the work and be ready.   The results, like the musicians at The Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar, will be terrific and inspiring if you are really ready.

I’m cheering for you.
