I had two rehearsals today to get ready for the Jewish Battle of the Bands on February 22, 2014 at the Meyer Kaplan JCC.
First, I met this morning with two of the three “Sweet Sisters,” and Jonah Karsh on clarinet. We practiced the three tunes for the performance on the 22nd, and we played around with tunes we’ll be recording. It was so nice to have my house filled with music.
Then, this evening, I met with the rhythm section that will be playing with us on the 22nd: Mike O’Mara on Keyboards, Dave Newman on Drums, and Robert Castillo on upright bass. We got into a quick, wonderful groove at Dave’s house! Thanks, Dave!
And what about tomorrow, you ask? Nothing much… I’m just going to record the lead vocals for the current pieces! Stay tuned!
