Transcript June 4,1982 / Montrose Voice 19 Billie Duncan, David Douglas, Bill Yon (of course), and the Jeanette McDonald of Montrose, Bobbie Willis. A lot of local theater people drop in after rehearsal or after a show, and visiting personalities from shows that are passing through are not uncommon at the Keyboard. In addition, many singers that are working around town, come in on nights off to goof off and have fun. As much as Tommy enjoys what he does, he is thinking of doing something else for a living. He sees people who have been working in the bars for years and really have no other life and no longer appeal to the audience. He does not want to wind up like that. Besides, being an entertainer is not considered to be one ofthe most stable professions by the outside world. "It's the security in the future. Someday we're all going to be over the hill. I think about insurance, credit, buying a car." Until he decides to chuck the late night melodies for the old nine to five, though, Tommy will be filling the Keyboard with his music, his talent, his warmth and his charismatic personality. Even when he makes his move towards normalcy, it will not be a denial of his musical life. "I hope to always keep on playing. If I weren't doing it, I'd be miserable. I know I would." ■ Duncans Quick Notes The Mystical Magic of Mummenschanz: The tower has been very good to Montrose by taking chances and bringing us some high-quality, off-beat offerings. Mummenschanz is at the top of the list. These people are great. They put on a wonderful show. They make the audience laugh and think. What they do is not just a show. It is an experience. If the unusual creative mind appeals to your senses, Mummenschanz is playing at the Tower through this weekend, closing Sunday, June 6. H/OB AH the Day: Houston/Off- Broadway and John Day & Company presented a high-energy show last Tuesday night at E/J's as a Gay Pride Week fundraiser. Although the show was under- publicized, the turn-out was good and included in the audience ranks the ever- smiling John Kirk and the ever-speeching Larry Bagneris. (Now, Larry, don't go off. I like your speeches) From the response of the audience alone, it was easy to see that the show was a hit. At the end ofthe second show (there was one at 9:00 p.m. and one at 11:00 p.m.), H/OB and John Day & Company joined together, with John Day playing "Reach Out and Touch." Soon almost the entire audience had joined the performers, linking arms or holding hands in a large circle and singing. A night to be remembered. H/OB and John Day & Company will perform next at the Kinderd Spirits fundraiser on June 15, and they might perform at the Rally.
