Hey, Amy!

I could either call or play backup guitar. And I'd be willing to trade
services with anyone who could play backup in place of me at a private 70th
birthday party on the 29th with Cuckoo's Nest. There would be money for that
gig. I had agreed to do it a week before discovering that people were hoping
I could call at well-known dancer Lois' White's 80th birthday party dance
the same night in Danville.

My availability is NOT contingent on the trade. Any leads on an available
backup pianist or guitarist would be very welcome!
