The band Smile and Wave, of which my daughter (Emily on voice and rhythm guitar) is a member, competed in a Battle of the Bands tonight at her high school. Other members are Dave Barrett (6 string electric bass), Alex Hart (drums) and Erwin Remigio (lead guitar). They did really well with their two songs Liar (written by Emily) and their cover of Stevie Nicks’ classic Edge of Seventeen.
I was impressed by the skill level that was evident in the other performers as well. In particular, there was one guy who played a very cool looking guitar that I was told he made himself for one song and played rocking bagpipes on another.
A very enjoyable evening all around!
