Our band played for the second time in one week. and the improvement was noteworthy. This time, no rain, the sound (thank you Patrick Russini) was crystalline, and while there are a few things to work on, the performance went well, and we were invited to come back and play again.
I've got to admit, I had a wonderful time playing and I feel like I learned a lot about working together in a band. I find playing out worth many practices. Once again, our original songs were well received as were the covers.
Highlights of the night for me were: Wild Horses, with Debbie singing a great lead, Tony's guitar on Comfortably Numb, Dave's voice on Should I Stay or Shoutd I Go. Daniel was superb on the drums all night. I loved playing my song, "Music Is The Ride."
There was a great vibe in the place (it was a private party in Sarasota) and the band both added to it, and picked up on it. We have another private party to play for on December 12, and are looking for venues to play out.
Hope to see you out there.
