I've been MCing the jazz and big band sets for the past several weeks. It's a learning experience that often proves hilarious for the rest of the band. So far I've learned to avoid the "girlfriend voice," (that voice guys go into when they get on the phone with their girl and start talking a little higher; "Baby, don't worry, I'll be there a little later . . .") and am smiling at them with some regularity. My next goal is to actually make eye contact with them when I have the microphone . . . baby steps, baby steps. Some day I might even learn a couple jokes!
