I Finally Had a Gig During this pandemic

It was great to be playing again, as I recently did a gig with one of my favorite jazz bands. Third Coast Jazz.

Has it been 7 months? I guess so!

Anyway, it was great to once again perform with my fellow bandmates. And although it was stressful to say the least because of the pandemic situation, the band wore our masks as often possible, and we were socially distanced.

The gig was at a mansion in Temecula Wine Country, a wonderful sunset / late afternoon wedding and reception. It was wonderful again to perform at someone’s wedding again. It’s just great to be a part of the bride and groom’s special day, and as it turned out they loved us and had a lot of positive words to say about us.

Here’s a review from the bride:

Ahhh! This band just did my wedding, and I was SO AMAZED! The vocalist was awesome, they were super friendly, nice, sounded great, and the wedding literally went by without ANY flaws. They even prompted me as to when I needed to thank everyone, kept me on track with timelines, and really made me and my husband feel SUPER SPECIAL!

Beforehand, they made sure we provided our first dance song, father/daughter song, etc., and they KILLED IT with our first dance song. Youtube it: Snoh Aalegra: Find Someone like you. I would totally hire them again, and again forever! Even during a pandemic…the band was FLAWLESS!

Once again, I was very happy to be performing jazz and top40 music again with my bandmates. Looking forward to the next one.
