1. Really?

I once let someone get up on stage with me for a song he convinced me he could sing. About halfway through his first verse I had to stop him and ask him to sit down. It was a train wreck.

2. Limbo

One time my mic stand started dropping and I’m doing limbo trying to sing as it sinks lower. So I run to Pat's mic, he lowers it, and I finish the song. Never missed a beat!

3. MacGyver

I once had to tape a mic to a cymbal stand because I forgot a mic stand ... I also once had my bassist make a guitar strap for me out of duct tape.

4. Crackheads

A crack head once stole my tip jar and ran off. Later, a friend at another bar spotted her yelling at an empty chair until the police hauled her off. After my performance, the audience tipped me well and replaced what was stolen.

5. Wake up!

Being a new father, I once fell asleep for a few seconds and lost my place in a song while performing.

6. Crickets ...

We once opened for a band who I wasn’t familiar with. Our set ended, I thanked the audience and told them to stick around for the next band, but said the band's name wrong. Luckily they weren't there yet to hear it.
