For New England gigs - check for blizzards, black ice, black flies, sleet, wind shears, snow drifts, freezing rain, Lyme Disease, Deer Tick Disease, moose, deer, fox, mosquitoes, gnats (noseeums), Border Patrol checkpoints on I-91S, acid rain, Spring floods and flu symptoms.
You'd better call ahead to Florida gigs and check during flash floods, severe thunderstorms, tornados, water spouts, red tide, black tide, hurricanes, record cold snaps, sink holes, gators, jetskis, drought fires, voting recounts, George W. Bush as president, and West Nile Virus mosquito infestations - all of which because Jeb Bush was Governor.
Check all other world locales for their inherent dangers. Party at your own risk. Don't drink and drive.

This site dedicated to the late Victor Borge - nobody combined music and comedy as pure or as well as he.
