    We are on vacation. We drove over to Fort Myers beach (Florida) to explore a bit after we dropped my brother in law and sister in law off at the airport. We walked around, it was blazing hot (for us), and we went into an outdoor restaurant with a covered patio for an early dinner.

    There was a guitar player set up and playing; a one man show. He had a nice Strat with lockers on it, and some multi-pedal that allowed him to do steel drum sounds, beach sounds, all kinds of stuff. Good player. He covered beach music, some crowd favorites, some background stuff, and someone requested Santana, and he played a few Santana songs. He had an iPad set up to the speakers to do some drums and background music.

    It was nice to see someone playing live. I gave my wife a $20 to put in the tip jar. She made a request for some Stones, but he admitted it had been too long and did not want to butcher it. We respect that.

    It felt nice to hear some live music, and support what I think is a local.

    ^^^ He plays The Rolling Stones so it can't be him.

    We got a small taste of live music at Disneyland a couple weeks ago, but nothing like it was before that which must not be named descended upon us.
