Lots has happened since last posting. For over a year now we've had the wonderful addition of Michael Byron to the band. Yes, adding a guy breaks the all-female code. But Michael is a wonderful band member. Plays great bass, never complains, sings, writes songs and adds a nice balance to our quintet. He is also the frontman and lead guitarist for a band called Alpha Dogs and has mad lead guitar skills.

The weirder thing on that is it's only on some songs. Unless the songs are super-easy, I don't get to sing, and I love to sing. I suspect I'm not the only one this happens to; it's probably one of those brain-wire things. (That said, I notice it never gave Paul McCartney any trouble.)
We're playing festivals and having a great time with it. What's not to love? We don't have to bring the crowd, the sound system, or the stage. Just show up, rock out and have fun!
More later - just happy to get back into blogland.
Now if I can just remember the new password.
