I love playing music! what is better is sharing it with others. The release is like nothing else and seeing others enjoying the songs you wrote is the icing on the cake. Today my band, Standoff, has a show at a skateboard/BMX competition. It’s been a while since I played an outdoor show, so I’m a little nervous about it. Our set is also a lot shorter than our allotted time, so I’m going to have to yak a bit between songs to drag it out a bit. It is going to be fun.
Music is amazing therapy and has always been there for me when I’m down and out. I’m not sure that I could have made it through my wife leaving if it wasn’t for this band and my records. I know it’s a cheesy thing to say, but hardcore music saved my life. It has taken me through tough times, from homelessness to friends leaving us far too early. It’s always been there. If you are in Winnipeg, you should come out to Skatepark West (sturgeon road) and catch some bands, skateboarding and BMX!! If not, have a positive day!
