My band, minus a permanent lead singer (we’re in the process of auditioning some new folks), played out live for the first time the other day at a neighborhood Block Party, and while the weather was hot and the audience rather sparse, we had a blast on the lawn, and remembered again — after a long stretch of only playing for ourselves — the joy of making music for others.
That’s me on saxophone. We invited a friend to sing lead on this James Brown song.
Peace (play it),
KEVIN!! I hope people were up and dancing! How fun is this! One of the things about the last couple of years that I appreciate is how much more I appreciate the things I love, and it shows how much you love the sax and the music!
The sax is the star. It feels like a wonderful moment. Wish I was there!
Wow! This is fabulous. It looks like a good time. Thanks for sharing this moment of joy.
How wonderful to be back performing live outdoors (for more than just yourselves) again! Sounds like a wonderful time.
