The weekend just passed saw the three year anniversary of SOAR music coming into SL. I wasn't planning anything special cos i am the same shy guy you know, in all things :) But as things turned out it became a lovely little celebration anyways.
My Saturday started out with a gig at the Bleu Katt. It was the first time there for me (thank you kiki for having me over) and a sweet bunch of SOARINGS came over to keep me company. Thank you gang! And then sweet Precious from Under The Willows had a cancellation and asked if i would like to fill it. Sure i would :) And another great bunch of SOARINGS came on over - and well i had let it slip that the anniversary thing was real. So a great morning for me with two ballad sets done and dusted as well as the debut of The Mountains Where We Live!
I was ready for a rest, except for something i almost missed because i cant ever get my calendar working perfectly. During the last week Experiment and I had been working with our great mate MichaelJames Magic (DOM) on a new song that he wanted to dedicate to some people close to his heart affected by a recent tornado. It was debut time for the song during MJ's gig at Purelife. Oh man i'm so glad i was reminded about this and didn't miss it. MJ did a fantastic job performing the song in his usual wholehearted and sincere way. Love your work MJ!!
Then night time. Then a show to finish my Saturday, on the wonderful Colour Factory main stage. All the worlds insomniacs were there and it was really a fun time with a full mid tempo rock set. Thank you Whisper and Precious for going out of your way to make it a happy time :)
So thank you everyone for a great day of gigs. Your support, love and attendance never goes unnoticed whether there is only you at a gig or sixty. In our own ways, however it finds us on any given day we get to share the joy of music and this is a wonderful thing. Throughout my life there are many crystal clear memories of times spent and loved sharing music. These days singing in SL have a special place amongst them forevermore.
Thank you sweet peoples :)
Oh yeah, the photo of me!! Hehehe. I couldn't find a photo of a cake with three candles on it........
