I haven't talked about my band much lately, but things are going really well. We're playing at least twice a month and often quite a bit more than that. We have five weeks in a row booked in June and early July.
Over the past year we've phased out most of our poppier classic rock and moved toward a harder-edged sound. I'm enjoying getting to sing Led Zeppelin, Quiet Riot, Rush, Judas Priest and many of my other long-time favorites. We're also doing some newer songs by Halestorm, Saliva and other contemporary hard rock bands.
I haven't quite accomplished all the fitness goals I established for myself in relation to the band, but I do find that I can make it through the night without being quite as exhausted as I once was. My feet seem to be holding up better as well, but I think I can credit better shoes for most of that. The boots I'm wearing in the photo above are Aerosoles and they were worth every penny.
I can't imagine a more fun hobby than singing in a rock band. I get to dress up, put on fun makeup and sing at the top of my lungs for (mostly) appreciative crowds. Rock and roll!
