Now it's your turn. Here's the pick.

“Yeah! That’s right.”
Keep it up!
“Keep it up!”
Rock on!

Not bad for your first time, baby sister.

Lenore performed a complete set with electric and acoustic guitar this past Thursday. She did very well.

After her set, the next band graciously invited her back on stage to sing ‘back-up’ and percussion.

These guys are amazing, and let her stay up for a good four songs. For Lenore’s part, she kept decent time, and sang along when it was expected of her. She had a great time.

After her time on stage,  she had a Shirley Temple (2 cherries) and enjoyed the other bands.

After her time on stage, she relaxed and watched more bands take the stage with her favorite treat: a Shirley Temple with 2 cherries. All of the musicians were supportive and gracious, and she even had some invites to play guitar with other bands the next time around.

We go back on March 27th, and you can bet she can’t wait.
