My friend and neighbor, Ben, is in a band. One day (aka last Sunday) he asked my friend and roommate, Jessica, if we would help make up some harmonies to a few of his songs and help sing back up at his show at the Velour the following Thursday. We both never pass up a chance to perform... so we said yes.
I was pretty excited. The first and last time I was at the Velour (aka Hipster Hangout) was when I went to see Joshua James with my good friend Allyson. Now I was going to be singing on that stage. Just to a much smaller crowd. :) Here we are hanging out backstage, waiting to go on.
My ward is great. We put out an email that we would be performing... and we had a big group come to support us and listen. Some even made signs. I love my ward. It was so great. Jessica and I even got this nice note the following Sunday.
It is always a pleasure to perform and be among musically talented people. I only hope I get to do it again. :)
It was so fun to perform at the Velour with this band. Such a fun venue with fun people. I also got introduced to some new music, which is ALWAYS fun.
