My very first ever professional (defined as getting paid for it) gig was for an NCSY shabbaton in Long Beach...our band was supposed to play some ruach music after havdala. So we get there and set up, and then the kids come rushing in from upstairs and it turns out to be an NCSY Our Way shabbaton - that's a special division just for deaf kids. I couldn't believe it!!! We had rehearsed for days and days to be ready, and they wouldn't hear any of it. Then, to pour more salt in, while we're playing, some smart-ass kid comes over and writes us a note: "you're the best band I never heard!" damn if we weren't cracking up - and in the end, the advisors said the kids do really feel the sound, and they actually did dance a ton, and we had a good time. Thus my introduction to the world of Dm.Anyone else have any?
