What does Gabby have to say?





Ladies Rock Camp Beckons

I'm sure it's no secret that I am a music freak. I was the kid who always had the radio on, but playing music on records and radio and playing an instrument are 2 different things.

I took piano lessons when I was a kid, from 4th grade until my senior year in HS. I never was able to play " by ear", and I hated practicing. I took oboe lessons for one year, but I kept breaking the reed on my braces. Reeds were 75 cents each and that was a lot of money for a Jr  High student  back then.
 I went to a music and art camp one summer, and played the drums. I was in a jug band my freshman year in college, playing tambourine and kazoo. That is my entire sum of music performing, until THIS WEEKEND!!

On Friday, I begin 3 days of Ladies Rock Camp, where I will learn to play the bass ( I chose my instrument), we will form a band, write an original song and perform it in front of an audience at a showcase Sunday evening at the Brink Lounge
For someone who has always admired musicians, I'm so excited I get a tiny taste of what their lives are like. So wish me luck and come out and watch all the bands ( there should be 5 of them) on Sunday.

The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...
