All it took was Chadrick Honore inviting 'all the ladies in the house' on stage, and the stream of women started through the side stage door. I scooted in last after a good nudge from my awesome friend, "You've got to go..." I've been on stage briefly to take a few shots when Rebirth has played Chelsea's and once at Bogie's, but never at the Varsity Theater.
I took a spot right by snare drummer, Derrick Tabb, and tuba player, Phil Frazier. I'm guessing that there were 20-30 happy, dancing women who were completely into it with up there with me. Watch the video and see how only a few pulled out their cellphone to take a picture or two. Other than that, they were truly embracing the moment.
I'm not sure how I did not dance at all for 10 minutes. Usually, I'm movin' a bit in between my shots, but this time around I suppose I took the self-assigned video job very seriously. ;)
Thank you very much, Rebirth!!! Always excellent to have you in town.
