I'm sure most of y'all know that I sing and play in a bluegrass-gospel band, and we had the most amazing opportunity to open for The Boxcars this weekend at the Canton Theater.
It was incredible.
The theater is a historical institution in Canton, so the building itself is absolutely beautiful, but the real thrill was getting to be a part of such a great show!
Our friends from BlueRoad opened for them for the 5pm show, so while they were still watching The Boxcars's first show, we left a note for them on their car. (Daddy threatened to steal their hubcaps, but he decided against it.)
Also, doesn't Kate's outfit look amazing? I think so.
I really love my dress.
Mama and Daddy look pretty great too!
Anyone that performs at the Canton Theater gets to sign this wall! It felt really cool to be a part of something so huge.
|Katie took this on her phone. I completely spaced on this one and didn't snap one!|
Our set went pretty well, I think, and we were super pumped to be able to see The Boxcars live! They've got amazing harmonies, fantastic musicianship, and great personalities. They were such a treat to get to talk to, and they were so very encouraging to us as well. That's one of the best things about being a musician; you get to get paid AND see a free show!
Kate shot this from the balcony...
And I shot this from the sound booth...
We hung out by the sound man and watched the show...this board was ridiculous.
After the show, the lead singer Keith Garrett took a picture with Daddy and "Flat Stanley" who has been hanging out with the Bruce Weeks Family Band as part of my second cousin's 2nd grade project. Keith was a great sport about it.
It was such a wonderful opportunity for us, and I'm so thankful to Tim Moxley of Shady Grove Events for putting this show together!
