Fin (Singing California, #48)

The crowd at The Distillery, a place where Dave used to go for drinks after work, was small and uninspiring. A few of our friends showed up to hang out, cheer me on, and see their friend who’d been gone not quite a year. I was more excited and anxious than I thought I would be, nervous that somehow my name wouldn’t get called and I wouldn’t get to sing and my quest would not be completed. But my name did get called and I did sing. My quest was completed. I felt a small rush of disbelief, which quickly faded into nothing, perhaps a sense of normalcy. I sang one more song that evening, but really the night was just about hanging out in a bar with friends. We left when I was only two songs away of being called up a third time, but I was done singing for the night. It was time to move on.

The basics:

  • Location: The Distillery, Sacramento, CA
  • Miles traveled: 621
  • Songs sung: Don’t Get Me Wrong (The Pretenders), Last Dance (Donna Summer)

  1. Congratulations on completing the karaoke quest — road trip — melodyssey! We have a huge amount of respect for your initiative and undertaking. Hearing about all the places you visited lifted us out of that same day, everyday feeling it’s easy to have. And we even got to sing along as you came though town. Thanks, Kris, for letting us share in the adventure!
