two-step sketch

Slide guitar, the attention getter. At least now patrons look around thinking of hitting the floor. Thick eye-lidded drummer sleepily follows, 1 2 3 4, bringing down drumstick on top of the other on old worn snare drum. Bottles clinking occasionally in the key of B Flat, not on purpose, that dim neon place sound. The first couple rises, close and slow-sway anticipating. Harmonica beneath a brown cowboy hat accompanies, the silk brim adsorbing foot lights beautifully while accordion encourages two more mates. Singer leaves a full glass unmixed at the bar and strides two steps up to the microphone.

Very nice lead-up "sketch". However, you nearly had me lost with that "adsorbing" bit. But then came along the singer with his two-step approach.

Hmm. Ok.
