    I thought they just had their annual bbq! How many do they do? Or did they do bbq for the garage sale? Or am I just really really bad with time passage?

    That was the labor day pancake breakfast, But this BBQ was postponed from the middle of August. I might have mentioned it. Today, I got an appreciation certificate for my fabulous bathroom cleaning skills. Score!

    Here is the ad I answered:

    "Auditioning Male & Female Front Lead Vocalists.
    We are a large 10 piece wedding/corporate band with a full horn section serving the Hudson Valley for over 20 years. We are interested in auditioning both male and female front lead vocalists for sub work and possibly more if needed. We are looking for high energy seasoned professionals who can command an audience, sing on key, and harmonize well with others. Your personal repertoire should include all standard wedding/corporate style party music which is basically most top 40 hits from the 1940's to the current dance hits. Bilingual vocalists (Spanish) with some rapping ability (Pit Bull, Etc.) is definately a plus! Please, no egos or attitudes welcomed here. Only committed team players who will make all gigs and rehearsals. Thanks.

    Here is my response:

    Good Afternoon,

    I am taking a chance and responding to your ad even though I don't precisely fit your criteria. I am an actress /singer who does musical theater around the Kingston area. I know many songs from different eras, though my repertoire may not include all of the songs your band plays. My stage experience, however, makes me a fast learner. I am also a Spanish teacher at a local HS, therefore am able to sing in both languages. I'm not sure that I would make a very good Pit Bull, but I know a lot of songs by Shakira and J-Lo. I would love to do some Celia Cruz. My only previous band experience was as a lead vocalist in the all teacher band for Battle of the Bands last year at my HS. I sang, lead and harmony during our set while playing several different small percussion instruments. Sadly, we "broke up" after that one performance. My experience with that group is what has inspired me to seek a place as a singer with a "real" band. I am certainly able to command an audience both onstage and in the classroom. So, if you do not find the seasoned, professional, female lead singer that you are looking for, maybe you could take a chance on me.

    I do have one important question for you. In which HV town does the band rehearse? Please feel free to contact me with any questions that I did not answer in this email.

    Thanks,
    Paula

    I tried to be funny and let my personality out in the email. It probably won't come to anything, but at least I took action.
    PS, I think they are asking a lot looking for a person who knows all the wedding and party standards from the 1940's to present. Lol
    PPS, I deliberately left out any physical description. I figured if they are interested, they might ask or just arrange to meet me.

    They didn't ask for a physical description so I doubt it's needed Your personality shows, P. Good luck!

    Ok, I'm really starting clean Primal today. The only safe thing at the BBQ was salad, so I gave up.
