We all have our different ways and timelines for deciding life is back to “normal.”
Or maybe it’s about the experiences — going to a soccer game where the discomfort was more about being soaked by the rain and not being in a crowd of 21,000 other people, or running your first race in 580 days.
But I saw a sign the other day that surely indicates we’re getting closer to the way we were.
I would have to imagine that being in a tribute band requires a special kind of commitment.
Lots of people can cover songs, maybe even most or all of an artist’s repertoire, but if you’re going to be in a band like Dirty Deeds The AC/DC Experience, you have to embody the performer, to “mimic the antics and appearance of AC/DC in such a way that will keep you wondering if you’re experiencing the real thing!”
And while I’m no expert on AC/DC, even I know that Brian Johnson has very distinctive singing style, so that’s what people are going to want to hear.
The concerts have been a staple for the six years I’ve lived here, but like so many other things, were canceled last year.
So even though our July 4 celebration won’t be back until next year, the return of tribute bands can only be a sign that nature is healing.
