Thanks a slot.

I was in a casino the other day.  The main floor was a sea of slot machines of all different shapes and sizes.

There were even a few digital slots that featured no spinning wheels, and no old-fashioned pull lever, just video game-like graphics on a mini screen inside a big slot-like box.

I played a few coins at the digi-slots, got bored pretty quickly, and then went back to the machines where I could watch the wheels turn, just waiting for those Lucky 7s to line up and pay me the progressive jackpot (it will happen, it will happen).

I looked back over at the digi-slots, which were mostly without players, and got to thinking.

There are some things that are so inherently exciting that they don’t need the most revolutionary technological advancements.  In fact, if you go too far, you end up taking the fun out of the experience.

Live performance is one of those things.
