    Cobi - Paying Homage - Toronto


    Tonight will be my first time playing at the Massey Hall. It makes me think of the Neil Young album Live at Massey Hall 1971. My mother used to listen to that album on road trips when I was a kid, so I feel like the Massey Hall is something familiar to me even though I've never been. I only hope to pay homage to all the great artists that played this venue before me and invoke those same spirits at the show tonight.

    Today was a full day of travel to get to Toronto from Chicago. The whole band and crew took a shuttle from the Hard Rock Hotel to the airport, except this shuttle sounded like it was about to break in half every time we hit even the smallest bump.
    One of the crew members went to the front of the bus concerned we had a flat tire.

    The driver assured us everything was fine and we continued on with our fingers crossed hoping we wouldn't end up breaking down on the freeway. After an hour and a half drive, we got to the airport with very little time to spare and over 20 people to check in and get through security. We had less than an hour to be at the gate before they closed off the flight and the line to get through security is something out of a nightmare.

    At the check-in counter, they said the wait in the security line was over an hour and a half. I managed to squeeze my way through the line and get to the gate within 20 minutes. Half the band and crew wasn't as lucky though and a lot of them missed the flight. They had to scramble to catch planes out of different airports. It was a typical travel day for a band on the road. You have to be prepared for things to go wrong at any time, but it makes you really appreciate when things run smoothly.
