I've been fortunate to have picked up a few private events here in July, which has helped to keep us busy. The first was last Saturday, where we played for a wedding reception in Bellflower - the couple was very nice and we had a good time...had quite a few singing requests to fill for the first dances and the bouquet dance, but they all came off fine. Coming up this Saturday we're doing a birthday at the Cicada restaurant ( also the site of the Cicada Club shows on Sunday nights ), with special guest Ginger Pauley filling in Wendy Rae. I enjoy working for the staff there so it should be a fun time. We hope to have more for the public events soon...until then, it's the Queen Mary Observation Bar gig on Sunday night, Sept. 1.
