Sunday was the day of the concert. Sarah, me and her two bosses were all volunteering. We all got these nice polo shirts from Vineyard Vines. We got to the venue and unfortunately missed my favorite local band, “Entrain”. One of Sarah’s Bosses M and I were in charge of a table selling premier seating at $350 a seat. With that you got to sit up front on a nice cushioned seat, free hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, and your own toilets. We sold a pair of tickets to the guy that hosts the Clintons when they come to the island.
We were supposed to work 4 hours but Sarah’s other boss C arranged it so that I only had to work two hours so I wouldn’t miss the concert because we were stationed pretty far from the stage. She and Sarah worked the full 4 hours and then some.
I got to sit in the disabled area which was just as close to the stage as the $350 seats except there was a fence separating us. The cool thing was, there was a nice waitress on the other side of the fence handing out appetizers and she kept slipping some over the fence to me. C kept handing us beer over the fence too. They had vendors selling food and Sarah got us some sushi when she was done her volunteering which was in time for the main part of the concert.
I promised Sarah there would be no yelling (at dumbasses, though I could yell at the music), no biting (I wanted to at one point) and no caning ( I could have done that about 20 times but a promise is a promise).
This is a 10 second video of me saying Hi!
The tables in this photo seated 10 people and cost $10,000 a piece. Keep in mind, profits went to local charities. These people had the best service.
This is dumbass video # 1 which I narrate.
This is dumbass video #2 which I don’t narrate. This woman had paid $350 for a cushy seat and instead decided to block my view and dance in front of me. This went on for a while. I had promised Sarah I would be a good girl and not yell at anyone so I kept my mouth shut. Finally someone else who had paid that much money for a cushy seat decided he was sick of watching her dance and asked her to sit down. Kate Taylor (James Taylor’s sister) is singing. She was terrific too.
Sarah’s two bosses, C and M and me.
This is The Neville Brothers featuring Aaron Neville singing “Ain’t Got no Sunshine”. It is the full song but even if you don’t want to watch the whole thing it’s worth listening to a few seconds. Aaron is awesome.
Sarah and me
This is a small excerpt of Keith Lockhart and The Boston Pops doing a song from West Side Story. Up until 1995 John Williams was the conductor for the Boston Pops. He did the music from “Star Wars” and many other famous movies.
This is a small excerpt from Gladys Knight
This is Sarah and I later when we got back to her apartment on her porch showing off our costumes we wore for volunteering. (Anything that isn’t jeans and a T-shirt is a costume to me).
We had a great day and evening. Sarah’s bosses were wonderful to me and treated me like royalty. I wouldn’t have had half as much fun without them.
