Practice Gig at O'Shea's & Audition for Amalia

The previous weekend was quite busy, but I have to mention a couple of fun things that happened.

Last Friday, my friend Myra and our new band members Ray and Sawyer didn't have a place to practice last week. A friend of ours checked with the new Irish pub in town, and they said yeah come on over! They didn't mind us coming over and practicing in their pub. This was our first time playing all 4 together, so they were pretty bold to take us in.

We are not entirely beginnners though, so it wasn't a huge gamble. In fact, we sounded really good.

The idea was to practice, but with a pub packed with people, it was hard to not play song from start to finish. The new guys had to do the hard work since we played songs Myra and I already knew. It was fun though, and hopefully we'll be back there soon with a real gig.

Audition for Amalia

Our 3 year old daughter Amalia got a chance to do an audition for a TV commercial. We showed her the script, and she was supposed to lay down and pretend to be sleeping. She practiced at home and was excited about it.

We drove on Sunday to the hotel where the auditions were held. Amalia was excited. However, when it became our turn, she got very shy and didn't want to do it. I think the main reason was the lady who instructed her was quite unfriendly and I think Amalia felt uncomfortable.

Oh well, it was worth a try. It is not easy to do auditions when you are only 3 years old! I'm sure there will be more opportunities in the future.
