What if.......

Some people.., or most people for that matter, don't really realize how much music is a part of our lives. Or how it affects our lives. Whether your are at home..., in your car..., at work..., shopping...., it is hightly possible that there is music playing. And the affects it has on us can vary from person to person..., soothing to some may be boring to others..., Stimulating to me may be irritating to you. So many different tastes out there to sample, yet not all is satifying to everyone. But hey.., its music.., it is made to be enjoyed..., just pick what you like and dig in. I am lucky, I have many different tastes so I am easily pleased. I do not know what I would do if music was taken away..., or,heaven forbid, became illegal.
Could you imagine life without music? TV commercials would be jingless...., you'd probubly never remember any product names because the jingle wouldn't be stuck in your head to remind you. Movies and television shows would be so...monotonous.no theme songs or soundtracks. Working out, such as Zumba, would be pretty uninspiring without music to drive you on. Teaching your children their abc's without the Alphabet Song would not be so easy. Driving around, with no songs to sing or listen to, that would drive me insane! And of course you could forget about going to concerts or dances..., because there would be no bands or DJ's to perform.
Wow! I am so thankful that music is around, and NOT illegal. We are lucky to live in a place where we can still enjoy some simple pleasures.......something that makes the drive home a little more enjoyable......, working out more energizing...,house work (work in general) more tolerable.......and dancing..., well, danceable. So sing loud.., dance hard.....and keep the music playing!!

New Year

I cant belive it has been so long since my last blog...now here it is a new year.
But at least I can say tha 2012 started out on a musical note. I spent New Years Eve in Houston playing music with my band GYPSYHEAD at a uber-cool coffee house called BOHEMEO'S. In addition to GYPSYHEAD, two other bands were performing as well.., The KILJOYS, and BOMBA CHICA.....very awesome bands. BOHEMEO'S is hidden in Houstons East end, and it is worth the journey to seek this place out and enjoy the eclectic artsy style of it...a very hip place to hang out and enjoy art, music, coffee, even a beer and a meal. It was really an enjoyable night...a great place to ring in the new year....I am so glad we got to play there..., and cant wait to go back!! Gypsy~on!
