They now have to sign a contract with Arlington Racetrack and then will be playing a big concert at the park in a couple of weeks...and getting a nice paycheck for it!!!
    The band name is 'Back Alley Riot'.
    I even took his grandparents with me. They had never heard his play, so this was a huge treat for them...
    All my Dad was talking about on the way home was about calling his sister and brother in the morning to tell them about everything and that he went to a rock concert...Can you hear that conversation between all those 80+ year olds???
    WOW!!!! That Great!!! My oldest son Jason who is 24 has taught himself to play the guitar, piano, drums and many more that I can't think of now. He has also played in a band in the past. He now works in a local music store fixing all the broken instruments!!! :mrgreen: :thumbup: What does your son play? Tell him Congrats from Shawn on the Board!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :XD: :shock:
    Thank you , Shawn...my son is 32 and plays lead guitar and bass...
    You are very welcome, tell him to keep up the good work and have lots of fun!!!!! :mrgreen: :thumbup:

    Home from Arlington Racetrack...It was soooo HOT! Band sounded good, people liked it...They play again at a nightclub downtown, but I'm not going to that...I've had enough...now it's starting to rain....just enough to make it more humid...
