Now that that's over… let's get our rock on.

Posted: January 1, 2008 in Band, General, Movies/TV/Music

Welcome 2008. We celebrated the end of 2007 with a bang (more of maybe a cymbal actually). The band played our first semi-official gig New Year’s Eve. It was probably a year ago when the ideas started to crystalize and we decided that we should get together to jam. Our first practice was in January of 2007, and we really came together in April when Donna joined us as lead singer (and I got over that pesky appendectomy). Overall I think our only complaint was that our 8 song set list wasn’t enough.

It’s interesting that usually an experience like this causes me to create a list of “things we should do differently next time”, but this time there really isn’t one. I think that says a lot for where the band has progressed to, and more importantly where things are going from here. Mistakes were made, but nothing horrible.

So, I think that we’ve drawn a line in the sand so to speak. We know we can get up in front of people (even though this time they were our friends), and rock some tunes. Our next goal is to double our set list (and then double THAT). I think it’s safe to say that by this time next year we will probably have played a number of open mic nights and maybe even a full gig or two.
