Later immediately, at a neighborhood block celebration, my bandmates and I’ll carry out for a dwell viewers for the primary time in about 4 years. (I play saxophone). It’s thrilling and nerve-wracking — principally as a result of our lead singer left the band a couple of weeks in the past and myself and the bass participant are taking on lead vocals, and neither of us is mostly a lead vocalist that may carry a band for prolonged intervals of time. So we’ve divided up the duty. We’ve additionally invited a good friend to sit down in and sing on a couple of songs.
Regardless of the nervous vitality (will I bear in mind all the lyrics?) this morning, having a possibility to maneuver our sound from the basement to the stage (eh, the village garden) on an exquisite day with a receptive viewers is an effective way to return out of the Pandemic Blues that sidelines so many musicians. There’s a complete stage of vitality from taking part in dwell with a band that’s onerous to clarify.
We’ve just lately gone again to an outdated band identify — Duke Rushmore — and are searching for a singer so we will begin taking part in out once more regularly. Want us luck!
Peace (flip it up!),
