School’s out for summer!

And so are we, for a few weeks. Thanks to the hearty souls who came out to out last pre-break show at the Christiansburg Public Library – you were a small but mighty audience.

However, not to be deterred by mere miles apart, we’re rehearsing virtually. Sort of. In theory. It’ll be new and different, right? And we’ll all come back with our parts learned and memorized. 🙂

Happy Summer wherever you are!

Springing forward

We’re happy to say that we’ve got several local gigs in the offing, including shows at a new Senior Living facility and as the host of open mic events at the public library.

New events mean new music, so we’ve been working away to grow our repertoire over the last couple of months.  Know any songs about books, geeks/geeking, random pop culture?  We’re always open to suggestion.

Coming out swinging, er, singing

We’ve been working away, building repertoire, skills, and group dynamic.  (It’s hard to remember sometimes that we’ve really only been singing together since last October AND we took a month off in the middle.)  Got some great feedback from the Sweeps judges on our performance, which we’re using as guidelines for what to keep and what to tweak.

Along the way, we’ve started taping bits of rehearsal, like this clip Jordan grabbed during a run-through of our Pirates number.

In the works –  our first “real” music video, recurring shows at the new local retirement home, a gig at the public library, some pick-up performances around town, that potential big shindig around the end of the year, plus just mayyybe working something up for a certain wedding that’s coming up.
