Coming Soon to an Arena Near You...

So this weekend, my husband achieved a lifelong dream...he and his band rented time with a recording studio and spent the entire weekend (25 hours worth!) recording a demo CD!


Okay, so first of all, I am proud because this is something that he always wanted to do and he made it happen.  How many of us actually DO that?  I mean, I want to be a writer and while I am writing "stuff" I have yet to make my true dream come true.  Frank wants to be able to hold a professionally made CD of his own music in his hands and play it in his car.

And now he can!

The bass player designed the album/CD cover and insert, they are talking with a photographer to get some decent "band" shots for the CD...I mean, it's kind of exciting.  With the production of this CD, they will be able to actually go out and find places to play that aren't just open mike nights.  That's pretty cool, too.

So while they're not ready for their North American tour (yet), they are living the dream.  

Shouldn't we all??

Good for your husband and his band! I think everyone should do all they can to live the life of their dreams.

That´s really cool!
Many bands would like to have their own CD...
Agree with you: We all should be living our dreams :)
Life has both sides of the coin: dreams and nightmares.
Can you post one of their tunes? Curious about it.
Good Luck for the band!

That is so super extra cool! Congratulations to your hubsters and the rest of the band. You have every reason to be proud of that.

That's cool. I remember doing my own recording with my band. It's fun. It really was.
And it's so true about living a dream.

A friend of mine has been "living the dream" for a year now. As someone who has played in a couple of hobby bands during his life, I know the feeling (though no band I was in ever got as far as making a CD!).
