Hilltown Rasta

Remember I mentioned I was in a band?

Well we had our first gig last night! It was a beautiful May evening, thunderstorms abated and the skies were clear.

As you can see the weather was important what with it being an outdoor venue! It was a tad breezy however and I was a little concerned at points that I was going to do a Marilyn Monroe in my new dress....thankfully that didn't happen!

This was my first time performing in a band and with a whole music background is in the classical domain with very serious recitals where you don't tend to do a lot of dancing!

I had so much fun and can't wait to do it again!

Here's our lead singer and instigator of the whole shebang....Jah Gerry....he's worked so hard on getting this whole thing up and running and has even made a wonderful website for the band (we're called i Idren) where you can check out more of our reggae-roots songs!

I leave you with one of my favourite tunes .......Hilltown Rasta......!!
