The Closing Night Of The Rock And Roll Rehab Show At The Hayworth Theater

Last Saturday night was the final performance of Rock & Roll Rehab at the Hayworth Theater. It’s been a great run that was extended two weeks from the originally scheduled six weeks to a total of two months. Now we’re forced to close due to our star Greg Piper’s other show, the John Lennon themed Just Imagine returning to the Hayworth on March 9 at 8:00. He can’t do two shows at the same time, just lazy I guess, and there seems to be more Beatles fans than Tooners fans (that’s just crazy) so we get put aside for a while.

I want to thank all those who came to see us. It’s a tricky time when a show or a band tries to build an audience since it doesn’t so much builds an audience as finds an audience. You need to play to as many people as possible to find those few people in each audience with whom you strike a repoire. Most people can take you or leave you, some will hate you which is actually good since that means there are some who will love you. You need to ignore those for whom you simply are not their cup of tea and don’t take their rejection personally. You play for the fans, for those people who really appreciate what you’re doing. All the others don’t count.

The trick of course is to slowly build up your fan base from those simply curious to those who actually enjoy you and we were well on our way with the audiences growing each week from freebie tickets to paid admissions. So it is a bad time to stop but we have to do what pays us our living and unfortunately our hours coincide with the show’s schedule.
