I wanna rock and roll all night, and party everyday! :D

Yes I'm the girl in the middle with two dudes from my (ex) school's Blues Brothers tribute band. haha, just kidding. That photo was taken backstage before we went on to play Soul Man at the rock event. That night was great fun. It started though with a long day rehearsing before hand, most of the time I sat and watched. Soon enough though, we rehearsed our pieces. I played the saxophone for two pieces and there were two other saxophonists in the groups, the one in the photo and the one not in the photo (the other guy in the photo was the bass player!). We played Superstition and Soul Man, and then I played the big finale which was the beast known to everyone as Bohemian Rhapsody on the piano. The atmosphere during that last performance was electric, the adrenaline was pumping all over, it was epic. Of course we had our two star performers as well during the night, they're an amazing comedy duo. I'll put a link to their video here where they perform their own mashup.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nqPZzXCZqQ

So to sum up, the night was a hit, yes the raffle lasted for over an hour, and we didn't finish till after 11, and I was bloody exhausted the next day, but it was great. It also comes to show that our school actually has talent, and it does take guts to go out and perform in front of people you know and recognise. That's why I love music so much as it's exhilarating when you get the chance to perform music you love and the energy that builds on the stage is hard to describe but also hard to top. So if you have a talent for music and love performing or want to gain the experience, go to your school and ask if you can organise a music event. Or go to music workshops around your area if you've already left. You'll be amazed how much music can change your life. :)
