We played at Pier 60 in New York City for about an hour and a half tonight and helped raise $1.2 million for Alzheimers research. I am now sitting at a fundraising dinner with over seven hundred multimillionaires from the metro New York area who are all casually bidding at an auction for $10,000 dinners and $30,000 Hampton yacht rides like they’re just going through the Burger King drive- through. There was a $150,000 bid for something just now. Guess which guy doesn’t belong in this room! I’m almost drunk enough to raise my hand and say “one seventy five!” and then sheepishly admit that all I have on me is a couple of twenties and a spare set of mandolin strings.
