Slice of Life Challenge Day 17 #sol18

The band hasn’t been together since February.  Feelings of excitement and cheerfulness permeated the cracks of our smiles, as the five of us set up our gear in the back of Bearclaw Studios.

“Hey man, how you been?” Brother hugs all around as drumsticks, guitars, and keys slowly came to life.

Looking around at my four bandmates, I felt so grateful to be part of such a talented group of musicians.

  1. Sounds like the perfect way to let go and reset. “Brother hugs” and “slowly came to life” capture the essence of reunions. Glad you are making music together once again. Adult “after-school” activities can breathe in so much goodness for the soul.

  2. In our town, we have many festivals. One of the biggest pleasures for my husband and me during our “walk-throughs” is stopping to hear many of our local bands playing at local businesses and restaurants. It looks like so much fun! Some bands look like they have long histories together; I sometimes envy them.

    1. It’s a sacred duty to play music when you have talent. I’m fortunate to have talent and be able to play with some super great musicians- in both my bands! Thanks for reading 🙂
