    Probably not, The bassist already has his own band. We may reunite next year. This was the first BOB in 10 years at my HS.
    I'll have to find my own group to jam with. I have thought of advertising in my local paper "Female singer seeking band", but not sure how to word it properly. I need to make my age group clear. I don't want to field inquiries from teens and 20 somethings.

    It is funny, a Pat Benetar song, though I sang it well, is not the best choice for my voice. Jazz or Pop would likely be better. Ooooh disco. I picture being a member of a Jazz ensemble that breaks into Chic, Donna Summer or Cool and the Gang songs on a whim.

    ARGHH!!! Jealousy is such an ugly emotion. But I am in a music town, it would be soooo cool to be able to sing.

    If it is any consolation, I couldn't make it in your town. I much prefer my little end of the world where I can be a big fish in a little community.

    I think the thing that shocked people was more the stage presence. I am known as that "nice" Spanish teacher. LOL, Boy did I blow some minds.

    I remember back in high school, before my voice changed and went south big time, I was told by our choir director that I have amazing stage presence. He said that I looked more comfortable on stage than most professionals.

    I love being the center of positive attention, my talents do not tend to give me that very often.

    I do live in a town of wanna be's though! The good thing about it is that there are also opportunities for so many. I am sure you would find a home for your voice here. We have more than a few bands that are made up of doctors from various hospitals, and teachers, and whatever. It is very easy to get pretty good live music for just about anything at a pretty reasonable price.

    My Fast Day was a success! I did a total fast until dinner, then had 4-5oz of chicken and a salad with OO&V plus half an avocado.
    Today I just have to make sure that I eat enough. I'm so used to eating 1400-1600 cals, getting up over 2000 may take some effort.

    Suddenly this week it hit me that I only have three more weeks with my students. Frankly, I am a little sad. My students were awesome this year. It was the rest of the BS I could have done without.

    Hiya P, on a tetchnical note, I presume looking at the size of the amps and the noise being created that everyone was DI'd into the PA?

    I'm a bit like you voice wise, was in a rock/blues band, whislt having more of crooner type voice, couldn't sing an ACDC song even if you attacked me tender bits with an hammer!!

    Those three weeks will scoot by as well!

    And D, one of my dreams is to visit Nashville (I guessing that's where you live, going by the term 'music town'.)

    DD-We have a full sound board at KHS not sure what we were hooked into, but the sound guy was able to adjust the sound individually. The mics were wireless and cut in and out at times. GRRR. The purpose of the teacher band is 1) Campy entertainment for the kids and 2) To help with sound check before the competing bands come on.

    I imagine some sound issues could also be my husband's camera. A CD of the event is being made, so maybe that will give a clearer sense of the actual sound we generated.

    PS I am getting a kick out of all the comments that I am getting around here. The AP that I have known for years keeps calling me Pat and one of my good friends in the english dept. told me today that he had heard rave reviews. lol I even got a great job from the drummer of one of the student Punk bands.

    I'd say you were probable DI'd then, if the sound guy had full control, the geetarist on the rights amp looks about the same size as my practice amp, which I don't think would have filled that hall, and I thought it was a decent sound considering it was a camara! Bass player looked like he was using some Ashdown gear, which is tidy, got a couple of there amps as well!

    Wireless stuff can be PITA, but so are cables, especially with 4 or so mikes!

    Can't beat some camp entertainment Pat, ooh err!!
