Another year over

Hard to believe it's December already. The band played its final scheduled performance of the year in November, though individual performances are continuing. In fact, tonight we are getting together at the Trees Organic Coffee (450 Granville) to play individual sets at the open mic hosted by Marq DeSouza.

Before that happens, we will be meeting at a local steak house to review the year that was and discuss our plans for 2016. 

The year that's ending certainly was a big one, focussed on band development and performance. I had entered the year with expectations to complete two albums of new original material. The songs are there, but recording and production is taking much more time as our expectations and demands increase. Still, we have integrated many of the new songs into our performances and we've been sharing the recordings as they get close. I'm certain something will be released in 2016 and have already picked an album cover.

The next couple of blogs will review other successes in 2015, and focus on plans for 2016.
