There are a few things that are a little hard to believe when I sit down to write this post:
1. I’ve played my songs and solos on other people’s songs in a band.
2. I’ve been doing that for almost a year now
3. That year is almost up!
4. I forgot to get pictures of our final Rubicon Showcase!
I did get some videos, which need a bit of editing and my iMovie is acting up. As in, I think I might have to buy the new version. Boo. But I grabbed some screenshots at least for now. We couldn’t all fit in the same frame, so here is me and Connie:
And here is Mariana:
We did a five song set together and kept it pretty simple this time around. I was on my acoustic the whole time, Connie on her mandolin and Mariana on her acoustic for all the songs except Anchor where she did the shaker instead.
Songs with The Doras:
Keep Telling Me (Heather)
Let the Mystery Be (Iris DeMent cover by Connie)
Joyful Noise (Mariana)
After our set the guys group did a super-kick-ass-funky-got-me-dancing-in-the-corner set. Then there was a bit of a break and most people cleared out and then I finished off the day with one last set on my own. I had two songs ready, and since it was my last Rubicon showcase, Dan said some nice things about me and even had me play one more song.
Solo: Wings, I Know, Shoreline of Alaska
I’m sure gonna miss the band! Luckily we are doing one more show together out at the Red Shed on April 24th!
