Last-Minute Change

drewwithjen.jpgSometimes at the ballet, at the beginning of the show they will announce that a different dancer will be playing this or that role instead of the one listed in the program. This is my version of that announcement.

Mike Ross regrets that he will not be able to join the Altu’s 10+1 Year Anniversary festivities today. We will miss him, he has been such an enthusiastic part of our musical family. In fact, usually when I need a last-minute sub, Mike is the first one to say yes.

However, we have exciting news… Drew Howard (AKA Captain Midnite) will fill in, from 1pm to 1:35. We are more than delighted that Drew is able to be with us. This will be his first show at Altu’s (unless he sat in with someone), though he’s been in the music biz for a really long time.

Drew & I are about the same age but I’m a definite newbie next to this veteran. He was probably born with an instrument in his hands. This substitute is no slouch. And let me tell you, he wasted no time getting back to me to say that yes, he could help out.

I love being in Lansing. This town is full of artful friends, and I am really feeling the love right now. I had a few other possible replacements in the wings, but Drew called me back first… We would not have been left stranded under any circumstances.

Get well, Mike. We’ll sing a few for you. (Mike is now scheduled for a 6:30-8:30 slot on Sat., December 29, don’t miss it.)
