Today, the band played our first gig in the New Year at the Sacramento Center for Spiritual Growth in Carmichael. The new spiritual leader, Molly Cate, was present. We presented a world premiere of an old gospel tune reworked by the lovely and irrepressible, Dena. It’s called If Anybody Asks You, Who You Are. I played electric guitar with the band for the first time and used the Wah pedal. People were singing along and head bopping, having a good time. That always makes all the work worth it. I played acoustic guitar on our second song, an original tune written by myself and my nephew, James. It’s called Brand New Day and I played in honor of the new year. Bruce played a ripping good bass solo section on that one.
