This is gonna be my year

That’s what my dear hubby keeps saying. And I hope he’s right. I think I’ve learned a lot and I’m finally beginning to piece it all together.

2012 was a great year. I had a few gigs here and there, probably averaging out to about one a month, and made some great new contacts. The highlights were being part of the St. Louis Cabaret Conference, doing a private birthday party for a 70 year old woman, doing a zombie-themed act for the St. Louis Zombie Squad, and being part of the Christmas show for The Randy Dandies.

But 2013 looks even brighter! I met a wonderful pianist. I hope to record an EP of public domain songs. And I’ve been accepted into the St. Lou Fringe Festival and will be doing a FOUR SHOW RUN June 20-23!!!

This festival is gonna be huge. They expect foot traffic of 3000+ people, and the venue I will be performing in will seat up to 80. That’s the potential for 320 seats over the course of the festival, and a countless number of people seeing my name.

So for the next 5 months I’m gonna be elbows deep in a pile of sheet music, planning, charting, shooting promo photos, creating flyers, dipping into marketing, and of course rehearsing. I’ll finally be putting together a band and doing this thing. I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself. Maybe this will be my year after all. 🙂

Oh, and I owe you all a video, so here’s one from The Randy Dandies show at Plush.
