"One Family Making Music"

by Webmaster

Once again, I was late writing this article. I have a full-time job now, in addition to doing web work and performing. I had a really full schedule in September and no time to take a deep breath.

But, I did manage to go to a play one Sunday evening. It was a bluegrass gospel play about a bluegrass gospel radio station. It was written by Suzie Solomon of Founders: Bands, Singers, Songwriters, Solo Performers, Sidemen, Instrumentalists, Performers, Entertainers, Musicians, Places to Hear Acoustic Music, Locations, Venues, Clubs, Festivals, Business and Services Supporting Acoustic Music, Music Stores, Musical Instruments, Music Teachers GospelGrass Gospel Grass: Places to Hear Acoustic Music, Locations, Venues, Clubs, Festivals, Music Promoters. The performers were Suzie and her husband Gary Solomon, Suzie's daughter Annie, her friend, Suzie's son Michael, and a friend of the family.

The play was well written. It had interesting characters, funny lines, great music and kept the audience's attention. I was impressed with the quality of the writing and of the performing.

More than that, though, I was impressed by the connection the family members have: to be so talented and to be able to put on a production and perform as a family.

It made me wish I had experiences like that when I was growing up.

Husband / wife and sibling music groups seem to have a connection when peforming that other groups, no matter how well-rehearsed, just don't have. Perhaps it an unspoken bond, a connection that goes deeper than being in a band, that imparts more meaning to the music.

Thanks to Suzie and her talented family for providing a number of lucky people with a night of wonderful entertainment.
