Default This is great

My 26 YO son is pretty good at a lot of things music. Anyway, he is the bassist in an original band.

They have 2 offers, right from the venues themselves, to play on New Years Eve.

All I can do is say way to go. All the fuss about getting gigs and here they get offers for gigs from venues. And they are an original band no less. They are less than a year old. They've had nights where they were paid twice as much as the bands I play in. My son hooked up with them on get this, CL.

I've heard their live recordings, and they are surprisingly mature in their whole approach. Good solid drummer. They are past the showoff stage already, all of them. I'm going to attend one of their gigs this coming Friday. It will be the first time ever seeing/meeting them.

A super proud moment Larry. I remember going to my son's first gig. Blew me away in so many ways - I found it way more emotional than I expected. I'm sure you'll get a flood of pleasing thoughts & memories rushing through your brain. It's special -savour it!

Pass along a most righteous fist bump from the Watso.

Their next gig is being videotaped tomorrow.

However, I'm out of the country early this coming Monday and won't be home until 12/24.

I'm sure it won't be edited by the videographer before I leave anyway.

So it's going to have to wait.

But thank you for the interest. I will post it when I get it.
