It has been too long since I have posted a blog. I have no excuse, and yet I thought I had many: too hot, too tired, too busy, not feeling it…and none of them are good enough. This is a new month and it is time for a new Band Wife (that means me!).
This gorgeous sunset picture was taken at Scusset Beach and is just one of the many memories I have of this summer. I went to Cape Cod last week with my nephews Nick and Diego and, being teens on their phones for much of our time together, renewed my interest in social media and reaching out to everyone, so here I am committing to 2 blog posts a week for the month of September,
I will be improving the website, writing more blogs, and tweaking my brand with help from my consultant, Linda Lowen at Always Wanted To Write. More about her to come as we continue on my journey!!
Follow me and I promise some fun stories of my escapades this past summer and reports of all the great things that the bands are doing!! These guys have been playing and practicing all summer and want to share their music with you all, party people!!
Move over little dog, a big old dog is movin’ in! I saw the first performance of the Mobius Jones reboot, with a new band member. Me! The roadie! Just kidding. They have a great new talent in Bryan Rubenau, who has joined the band with keyboards and vocals.
The banquet room of Barbagallo’s slowly filled with partygoers as we did our first sound check. I was given a quick lesson in how to work the soundboard, but even then I knew I would be too scared to actually touch it during the show. There were things I could handle, like moving bags and crates from the cars and unraveling cables and cords.
There was so much to learn, this first time as a roadie. I had gone to so many shows previously, in the stalker and grouple role, but this was my first roadie gig. i transported the speaker for the bass, and helped them unpack all the equipment. I talked with the drummer while he set up, and found out my first new thing…drums need to be tuned. I also helped hook up some XLR cables and helped set up the mic stands. Are you impressed yet?
