Got me a NICE gig next Friday!

A band leader I used to work with asked me to do a gig with him next week. We both graduated from the same High School, and the band is mostly made up of alumni. It’s a homecoming event and tons of people are expected. When I got the set list I noticed some great Aretha stuff. I asked who’s singing and the band leader told me, “brother, you are gonna LOVE this girl. Her name is Ada Dyer.”
Check her out. Psyched for this one!

Ya You Right! Working behind a great singer front person is so fun. I find I can relax and enjoy when there's an actual entertainer up front. Congrats!

That woman can SING! We played in an outdoor bandshell with no stage monitors and a clueless soundman. No one on stage could hear an effin thing - it was very frustrating. The good news is that the crowd loved it. My wife was in the crowd and said Ada’s singing was as good as it gets and the band sounded great. She (Ada) was also a very lovely woman who couldn’t have been more gracious. Good times!
