Last year I did the band thing for a few months, but I think none of us was really committed to our particular group and things just sort of drifted apart. I was disappointed but I understood why it happened. There was no bad blood, and when the bassist from that band called me about this new one (well, new to me anyway) I knew that I had to give it a shot.
And holy crap, am I glad I did. I've sang a few shows with them now, but last night was a totally different animal - Spartanburg, South Carolina's Music on Main...and we were the featured band!
I didn't feel nervous. I didn't drink. I had a ton of fun.
They said it was one of the biggest crowds they've *EVER* had.
It's funny. Marc, who is the one that basically started JUNO - at least in its current form - said that he feels like we are a [slightly dysfunctional] family. I like that. I hope that it continues.
I wish more of the photos were up, but as of right now the only ones of me...well, I look awkward, haha. I need to learn to...not stand so straight, move around some more. Supposedly I have "good stage presence" (at least, a few people have told me that in the past few weeks)...but I don't see or feel that. And the pictures I've seen so far certainly don't show it! Ah well...at least I've got the singing in front of a crowd part down ;)
So please excuse me if my entries have been or continue to be a bit disjointed at the moment, because to be honest...I'm out living my life.
And so far, I'm loving it.
