I am writing you from sunny/rainy Mexico City!
It's quiet here in my house at the moment, all you can hear is the happy news reports from CNN, the fast and furious typing of my husband on his laptop, and the slow and often foul language ridden sounds of me typing and wanting to smash my laptop....Pretty much normal for Monday night.( The image on the right is actually what I look like right now...)
For those of you who have known me for a while... You know I was in a cover band for 9 years called LUVSHAK. I loved playing with them, and of course they are STILL out there rocking the bars,clubs, casinos and wherever else a group of people get together to party. Well I am really thrilled to have found a band here in Mexico that I have just started working with. We are working on our setlist, building material and bad band jokes...Banda Radio Central is a five piece band made up
Coming up this July 6th- from 2pm-5pm
I along with Manda Chelmak of Headliners School of Performing Arts, have put together a stellar outdoor, all ages benefit concert for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. This happens on Saturday, July the 6th from 2pm- 5pm...Check out the Poster for details!!!!! I am very excited to have such a wicked back up band...Pat Steward and Murray Atkinson from ODDS,and Lance Lapointe on bass.... I have wanted to play with these guys all together for ages!
