We changed out our drummer and L. guitar player in 2012 - and I finally extricated myself from having printed lyrics on stage last summer. I thought that I had lost the ability to memorize songs like I was able to do in my youth - but it turns out - I was being a little bit lazy or paranoid.
This show is at a local brew pub that is very fun to play. Feeling good about the band. We got some talented young blood in the new drummer (27) and a seriously versatile talent in the new guitar player. We also went from one person doing back up vocals - to two. Huge diffy.
We've recently tweeked our approach on picking material and it seems to be working for our venues.
