Showcase at The Hight Watt was the Jam!

 

Just had a killer Monday night playing at The High Watt for their weekly “8 off 8th” event (interpretation: the venue is off 8th Ave. and 8 bands play 3 songs each – it’s a marathon night, but a lot of fun, too.)  And WOW! I’m so blown away by the talent in Nashville!  The bands playing represented a very diverse picture of Nashville, from a progressive rock/metal/jazz group to a catchy southern pop act to an energetic
bluegrass/folk ensemble
to a steel drum-fronted funk/fusion band.

photoTo add to my excitement, my fiancé Jonathan took the stage for the first time since the early 90’s playing bass with me!!  Jonathan and I have written songs together and have jammed together, but performing with him took our musical relationship to a new level.  He was even telling me the other night that he realized the performance aspect of making music completes the circle for him – it gives reason to the practicing, jamming and writing.

Here we are rehearsing for the show.

Also, joining me was my lovely and talented friend Arianna Fanning on drums.  Jonathan has known Arianna for a couple of years now, but when she moved in to our same apartment complex it became too stupid easy to start playing music with one another!  It HAD to be done!

And here are some other bands to check out from Monday night:

Duke
Mode Fresh
Coat Tales

    Check out what Rae’s been up to! It’s so exciting to hear about her adventures as an artist and how unpredictably good it can be. I loved the part of about how she said Jonathan thought his experience with performing completes a circle for him regarding making music. I think that’s important for everyone to recognize; performance isn’t just for showing what you can do in front of others, but rather what it means for you and your creativity.
