March 6

Rehearsal complete. New charts read and tweaked a bit. We have some prospects for new keyboard/programmers. I am hoping that we get this nailed down this week. It’s hard having things up in the air and using temporary players.

I spent the weekend gigging and watching two completely different shows. Friday was rehearsal with pops orchestra, followed by Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” with CAL at Hard Rock Live. That was a chillin’ kind of show (I suppose I can use this language. It’s my blog, I can use whatever I want, right?) I could sit back, enjoy the vibe, relax and sway with the music. Saturday was the pops concert, followed by Stained Angel, then Apocalyptica at House of Blues. Heavy metal, all the way! Head banging, fist pumping, need earplugs kind of music. But what a show! High energy ran throughout the entire night. I completely forgot I had been standing for over four hours until it was time to leave. The music was infectious, and the whole venue was electrified with the music and lights. I loved every minute of it!

I cannot wait to create more charts, more sounds. I’m ready to take this to the next level.
