Magic on Stage @ AYY Annual Ball

It was a Facebook message four days before the showtime. Four days to the gig, 350 people in audience and already a tight schedule. But I had a feeling this would be something we would not wanna miss. So, when the decision was made one thing was for sure - girl's got to do what a girl's got to do. And like in so many cases the attitude matters a lot. I had two wonderful friends onboard with me, Jolle in bass and Olivia with her Violin. We opened our calendars and made the magic happen.

On Saturday I felt thrilled. I felt it was going to be awesome. The songs turned out to sound better at our last rehearsal than I had ever dared to expect. And a jazzy-bluesy violin riff.. I definitely recommend you to try that one even if it may sound a little nasty at first. ;) 

BUT. The excitement was not over yet. Our violinist missed a bus and it was another cliffhanger to hope and pray that she would manage to get on stage in time. Luckily the party was a little behind schedule and everything turned out fine. We climbed on stage and gave our best. And really enjoyed it all. Also the audience kept quiet and listened to each note we played. It was almost magical.

After the show we got perhaps the best kind of feedback any artist or band can have. Two girls wanted give a hug and said that our music had been "the best they had heard for a long time!". Combined with all the other positive comments we received I felt I walked a couple centimeters above floor for a while. It was time for some fancy drinks. What a gig!! Really love you people. The best thing I receive from performing is the joy I see it can give to other people! I am so HAPPY to be able to do this. <3

Love,
