Today at lunch we were treated to a live performance from a band named "Touch and Go." They were a cover band that played well enough and had a good female vocalist. While I don't think that I would have gone out of my way to see them, it was nice to have some live music.
Based on their appearance, they looked too straight-laced to be full-time musicians so I assumed that they were teachers in their day jobs. I was wondering what was up since from what I've heard, it is difficult to get a license to perform in Abu Dhabi. A few songs into the performance a woman from the U.S. Embassy announced that the embassy had arranged for them to play for us and that they were part of the U.S. Armed Forces. I'm not exactly sure why the U.S. Embassy is arranging for members of the armed forces to play in the Abu Dhabi Men's College cafeteria during lunchtime, but it made my day a little bit more enjoyable.
