Back when I had my Rockabilly-ish band The Dieselfitters together we were out playing a gig. My "Freak Flag" was down my back, drummer looked like a farmer and our bass player could have been just off a week long cattle drive. After our set, a couple of hep cats came up & said "with our eyes closed, you're the best Rockabilly band in town."
Guess we lost a few style points to the judges, but the music made a difference. And when you're laying it down, the dancers don't care. I didn't take offense and treated it as a compliment.
Tavo, you can drop the @46 qualifier.
