garage band stuff

This is for YOU.
You three humans who are interested in
my adventures with the new rock band…

We finally named the band!
So far, it fits.
We have 6 players:
guitar, drums, bass, keyboard, vocal/percussion
and are just getting acquainted…really!
After 4 rehearsals, we gathered on Saturday
for our first gig at a carnival.

It has been a while since I was on a stage,
but I’m comfortable up there and just sing
and dance with my tambourine like a masochist.

 Our playlist:

How to Save a Life
Everything’s Right Tonight
Knockin on Heaven’s Door
Hey Mama
Driver 8
Walk the Same Line
Over My Head

 Sorry bout the phone photography.
This little vid clip from husband’s phone
is part of my solo…the quality is horrible
but this I know, metal heads, future vids will rock.


Mama’s in a rock band with more gigs

planned…and you are invited!

Song requests???

Peace to you right where you are.


I am lobbying for Grace Potter & the Nocturnals’
“Paris” song right here.
