Entry 142 8.14.11

I directed the big band today! It was an interesting experience -- there were no major fuckups, so that's good, but I definitely need to work on my crowd banter. I need a way of keeping them on the dance floor while the orchestra sorts through their music . . . also, we need a more flexible set list. When I see people dancing to swing music and the next tune is salsa, we need to be able to switch it out. Otherwise we clear the dance floor without meaning to.
