Hello everyone, everywhere,
This week is starting to shape up pretty well. Just this last weekend Soulful Noize attended a birthday party for Danny, one of our guitar players. Danny’s parents put together a great garage band jam session for his birthday. The whole band came over to his parents’ place, and so did about forty other people. It was an incredible night of jamming, and if you’re a musician or a singer, you know the fun you have at a jam session.
We’re back at the studio now and learning new material to get ready for our summer shows. I am also going to do a one-act play as Superman at the age of 90, and what’s left of him will try to jump up and beat somebody up. I’m not sure if I’m going to put this on the road. I may just do some local performances.
I was thinking of getting a dog, but then I thought, NO. I was married once. I don’t need anyone else barking in my apartment. I was going to name him Harry. But I didn’t.
Dean’s having a bad week. Can’t say much about that. He just is. We’re in his corner, though, don’t worry.
And now it’s time to close our eyes and our thoughts, if only for a moment…and rest. Tonight, let’s enjoy…
THE JAM SESSION
Sometimes it’s enough just to do it.
If you are a player of songs you’ll want to be there.
For those of us who live for the passion, and of course, the ones who dream.
There was a regimen to follow, you see.
You bring your own gear and suck up the fear, so the smile stays on all night.
Nobody comes to be a star. You bring what you have: you are what you are.
Strangers become family, and oh how the ladies dance.
Sweating and rocking, smiling and living in the moment.
Not every song works, but you do.
After it’s said and done, and we pack the gear, our old dreams are put away…waiting for another day.
At the jam session.
(NEVER EVER GIVE UP)
