Band Joys

Our band is delightful. During the slow season, we were going to biweekly band practice originally. But practice today was so fun, as it has been since we formed up and we all unanimously decided to get back to weekly practice just for the fun. It’s really really fun and therapeutic. Music cannot be under-estimated. It is so powerful and a blast when everyone works together united harmoniously. It is fantastic! Thank you, God for it!❤


Band Blessings

I am in thr best band of my life. I have had good bands, but this current band is phenomenal. We are all good musicians, not perfect but good, but when we play together, something extraordinary happens and everyone feels and knows it both within our band and those listening. Every gig we have done has gotten three or four more gigs and rave reviews. Never before have things clicked like this and you cannot believe how deeply I am grateful to God for it, the Giver of all good. 😄 ❤

Kentucky Derby Gig

So, this is a first for our band. We are headed to a Kentucky Derby Gig now in Tampa. Super excited. They are paying us well and we will not disappoint for we learned three songs for this unique gig related to their theme and we are introducing our original band introduction song. And what a fun day! A new place, a new theme, fun, all with our band family. So, Lord willing it goes well. I am stoked. And may God get the glory for a job well done!,😄❤🐴

The Gig Tonight

We usually don’t have mid-week gigs. Most people hire us for weekends. But today, we had a gig. Just got back from it, actually. And this was the funnest gig ever. It was poolside at a resort next to Old Town in Kissimmee. We had all ages present, baby to 90 and everywhere in between. We even had a table of French speakers. And it was magical because all ages knew, danced and sang along with our live oldies music. It was more fun than I remember ever having at a gig. And we all smiled and danced and were vibrant and happy and the weather was perfect and I cannot imagine a better way to spend a Thursday. We helped tons of people remember happy times, have new happy times, enjoy life, spread joy and God Bless the USA was celebrated valuantly. It was wonderful. All ages love oldies music. All ages can dance together. And we heard so much appreciation and they will be hiring us back. The people all told the entertainment coordinator and she told us. They said we were the best band that ever played there in 10 years. And the point is jot that. The point is that we were united as a band family for music, dance, fun, lightening people’s loads, spreading joy, uniting people of all ages and nationalities. And that was truly a beautiful experience. I am so thankful!!😄❤

The Band’s Busy Season

So, we have 3 gigs next week, well starting this Saturday. We are doing 2 Valentine’s Day balls and 1 Mardi Gras party. So this should be fun. Here we go. And the whole time, we are so excited with new-to-us songs that are either fun or beautiful. So, I may not be blogging much this next week, you will know why. Busy playing with my band family and making people’s lives happy and beautiful. God blesses so much! I am so thankful!❤

Band Family

Our band is our extended family. We really have a great thing going on. We really appreciate this wonderful group of guys. All psitive, all wanting to try new songs and even genres, even working on originals together, we have the most positive band around. It is a joy we all look forward to and even want to practice more, get together more often and just really love being in the same musical groove. Ah, it is rich. I feel like a spoiled princess having such fun with my band family. Honestly, after being in bands for 30+ years, this is decisively the most positive and fun band I have been privileged to be a part of. Ahhhh. Thank you so much, God!!❤

CEU Days

So, I am up for renewal of my Audiology license and every other year am forced with a smile to do 30 CEUs  (continuing education units).  I can only do 10 hours as day, so am forced to do them as such over a 3 day span to knock them out. It costs a heap of money and is intrusive but I understand why they exist… to make someone money and be a pain in the neck. But I also learn a tad bit. Being a doctor for 15 years, I know a little bit about my profession. I don’t know everything so it is a wee good in a skantish way. But anyway, I am plugging along, getting my first 10 finished and reported today. Two more days of this nonsense to go. Yippee. But as a bonus break because God loves me, we had an extra band practice tonight! Highlight of my study day for sure. We have the best band we have ever had and we are a great, positive family having a whole heap of fun and making the most amazing music together! It is a blessing and and half and I believe God put us together. No doubt in my mind. Thank you, God!❤
