The View From Behind the Band - Friday 6/5/2009
We were invited to lead a Songmakers hoot on Friday night! It's a fun responsibility and honestly an honor to be invited to lead a hoot. Basically, all we had to do was open the evening with a song (in this case On the Road Again) and make sure everyone gets a turn to play and/or sing.
Kat's singing. Bobbie, Kay, Jim and Nina (clockwise in the background).
Frank takes a break on the dobro. Terry rests and listens behind him.
I don't have the energy to make up nicknames for everyone, and there are no innocents to protect here.
Except maybe Hydra.
Joel dreams up another witty remark.
The very cool way that Barry adds some shimmer to his cymbals. We seldom have a drummer at a hoot, and he's really great at reading the tone of each song and adding the right amount of percussion.
