So I have two performances coming up.

Back on stage for the annual performance of the musician's workshop I participate in. That is going to be May 19th. Only playing in one band for that gig this year.

Been sitting in on bass and playing a little guitar for a friend's for fun band. He has a big summer blowout every year and several bands play in the back yard over the course of the day. My musicians workshop band might play this party as well. That should be sometime in August.

Had a blast! We were on super early (2nd of 14). However, we were the tightest and most energetic band of the night. Since there were so many acts, we were all limited to 3 songs. Here is our set list:

Let It Be Me- Social Distortion
WIcked Garden (or Wicked Gahden if you are from Boston like me :p)- Stone Temple Pilots
Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely- Husker Du

Yes, I did use the new Charvel! She plays like a dream and sounds awesome. I was breaking it in during rehearsals for the showcase as well as practices with the band I will be playing the house party in August with.

The house party band played the showcase too but with an instructor playing bass for them instead of me. I just didn't have the time to add another session into my schedule with work, school, my own workshop band, and their weekend practice sessions. Their singer is awesome, though. She has a great voice. Their band was not as tight as mine but they didn't have me on bass :p Well, that's not entirely true as the instructor they had is a way better player than me.
