A lot has happened since my last blog entry. In addition to Life’s big events (weddings, funerals, births, graduations, surgeries, vacations, birthdays, etc), the band has also been up to some fun endeavors.
We are very excited to have our first official CD in hand. The EP, titled Found, has 4 songs (3 covers and one original) and was produced with the goal of sharing music with family and friends but also to reach out to a larger community of listeners. We hope to use the CD to find more performing venues as well.

We had our first “photo shoot” with friend and amateur photographer, Diane Borton. What started as an informal information session, ended in these fun candid and posed photos.
We also had an amazing time performing at the Annual Braveheart Memorial Ride and Family Day on July 11. It was a beautiful event and the audience was awesome! We received lots of positive feedback and cool vibes all around. We continue to play at Fotini’s Restaurant in Bolton. We also had a fun night playing at the Starbucks in Harvard Square in June. We have plans for expanding to other venues this fall. I will post the calendar once it is finalized. Our set list has grown to over 50 songs and we are having a blast adding more each week.
Over the next couple of months, we will be working on incorporating more originals into our mix with time spent writing and arranging. If possible, we plan to go into the studio this fall to record our first Original CD.
Finally, we are hoping to experiment with a new video camera and thought it would be fun to shoot some songs in different cool and unique locations (suggestions welcomed). We’ll post these on our YouTube site as they are created.
So, even though I haven’t blogged, things are moving along and I can’t say enough about how much fun all this music business is. Although my blog may have been gently weeping, I most definitely am not.
