There was one final gig for 2013. I was the host of the City of Maribyrnong New Year's Eve celebrations. With a turn out that came very close to 6,000 people it was a big gig. I was the host who kept things moving between the bands that were on. No real place to perform stand up but a receptive audience that appeared to enjoy my throw away remarks (eg "Many people keep coming side of stage asking where the fireworks will take place. I feel fairly confident in saying it will be happening in the sky".) The bands for the night were:
The ReChords and Swing Patrol Dancers
Public Opinion Afro Orchestra
Vika and Linda Bull
This night lead to me taking this photo to the entrance to my tent:
You know you've made it when you find yourself under Bjorn Again.
I was going to write more but it is new year's day and I figure if I'm going to take any day off it should be this one. Suffice to say it was weird, fun and a good earner. Hope you're all having a good new year's day and I'll be back with more blogs early next week. Until then...
