Do you remember back in November when I mentioned that my oldest son might be performing with a buddy of his in front of an audience? And then I updated the news in December because the performance was postponed? Oh, yeah, and then I updated the news again in December because the performance was postponed…again? Well, they re-scheduled the performance for last Friday night and can you believe that the performance was not postponed?! Yes, it’s true!
My son is on the left, I used soft focus on this photo. I didn’t want to be showing his friend’s faces too clearly without permission!
They were the second group to perform, right after a female barbershop quartet! They did a lot of practicing at my house before the show and they did an amazing job! They didn’t use their own guitars, so that made things a little more difficult, but they did a great job anyway. They were told that only acoustic guitars were allowed and they all only have electric guitars. The plan was to borrow two acoustics from one of their teachers that was also performing. When they arrived, they discovered that electric guitars were allowed. So my son borrowed an electric and his one friend borrowed an acoustic, and their singer…sang! They performed Nothing Else Matters by Metallica. Their guitar playing sounded so beautiful. I can’t tell you how proud I am of my son! I sure do love that young man! (I was going to say boy, but he’s going to be sixteen this month!)
I want to give a special thank you to Shelli at Shelli Pabis Photography for giving me some really great pointers to get some wonderful photos of the event! Thank you, Shelli!
