Looking back over this past year, a few notable things come to mind. First, in spite of a really tough economy, we managed to keep playing fairly steadily. That's saying something because when so many national institutions were on the brink, somehow many people felt it was still important enough to have live music. Second, we successfully played a high school prom, which was a pleasant surprise. I guess between playing a good show and having Manolo DJ the rest was just the right combination. And finally, we welcomed Alfredo Santana to the band as our new bassist. Alfredo is the kind of musician that any band would welcome: great player, terrific singer, and a real good guy.
So how will 2010 distinguish itself? Let me make a few predictions:
- The band will have its best year ever (to date). We'll all be a year older and wiser-- emphasis on the wiser part.
- Our song list will have several new additions.
- A recording.
- Our territory will expand to a 250 mile radius (Midland/Odessa, El Paso , southern New Mexico, and Chihuahua).
Have a happy holiday and a great new year!
