Default My Son's First "Gig"

My son is 8 yrs old and started lessons about 16 months ago. We randomly went to his instructor's band's performance and they called him up on stage to play Superstitious by Stevie Wonder.

It's pretty basic and there are some timing issues in there, but this was his first time ever playing with a band and, being impromptu, he was pretty nervous. Oh, and he normally plays on a Ludwig, Jr. kit with 13" sticks. He'd never played on a full size kit with full size sticks.

Really cool of Mike (his instructor) and Russ (the band leader) to let him do this.

Anyway, proud papa moment.
