There is no feeling in the world like playing music.
It cheers me up when I’m having an ugly day. You can see positive results from hours and hours of rehearshals. If you are lucky enough to play with a group, those are people you would probably do anything for. Music is amazing.
When your on stage and your band hits that groove, the point where you’re all having fun and feeling it. The point when you don’t care if your fingers bleed, your hands ache, or your voice starts to go. The point when the crowd gets into what ya’ll are putting down. The energy is spectacular. There’s a glow about you when your finally leave the stage. You are 100% down for anything and you feel like you could conquer the world in that moment. It’s a natural high that I hope never gets old. Some of my best memories come from those kind of nights.
I wholeheartedly believe that music is gift from the Gods. It affects everyone in some way and can bring us together across almost any barrier. If you are fortunate enough to be a musician, my hat goes off to you, my bretheren. You make me so proud. Next time you play a tune, stick your chest out a little for me. You deserve it.
