Thursday Night Gig

We had about twenty folks who dodged thunderstorms tonight to join us at Local Color in Springville. I don't think it ever rained there but you could see bad clouds all around us.
My nephews Mike and Shane came tonight with their wives, girlfriend and kids. We haven't seen them in a while so it was really good to catch up.
Mike drove up in a 1969 Camaro SS. It looks like it had just rolled off the assembly line. Those were/are beautiful cars.
I thought we did good tonight. We played songs that will be on our upcoming CD, along with a few cover tunes.
I also did some readings from my book. 
All the practice we've put in over the past month is paying off. Jilda's playing is getting much smoother and we are blending more. 
Our friend Fred, who does sound for us said that I need to work out some different harmony arrangements.  Harmony is difficult for me for some reason. I can work out something that I think sounds good, but when I listen to replays, it doesn't sound like I thought it did. I recently bought some harmony training CD's so I guess it's back to the drawing board there. 
All in all, I was happy with our performance. 
Have a great Friday.
