Our old band. Those were the days. I love our new band but just wanted to reminisce about the old band. Ahhh. Miss it. The new is great but every band family has its own flavor. Homage to Smooth Sentiment Band.❤😚🎤🎹🀄🎸

And here is the new:

Managing Band Children

I am the band mom. They say “manager” but that is false. My husband manages the band but I am the mom and gig-getter. That allows me to buffer the children, I mean men in our band and be diplomatic, do the work and heavy lifting, listen to the incessant whining, and yet have the luxury of being paid less and blamed for everything. But I wear big girl panties and can take all of it (meaning I pray a lot to a really big God). And my brief payoff is the exhilaration of making people happy and dance and the fun of all that and brief appreciation of the audience. So there are perks. Biggest one is playing with my husband and my band brother. And now my son is our paid roadie. That is sweet too. 

Our Smooth Sentiment Band Family

Well, here we are, the Smooth Sentiment Band. We are a musical family, crippled in that we lost a good drummer brother gained another drumming brother that I have yet to get a pic of (welcome aboard, Troy). So here we are, in love with music and adoring the fun we provide to lift spirits from current events and bring back their remembrances of good, clean oldies rock and roll music. We are practicing up and are about to embark together on yet another season of making people happy. 😄 ❤
