Ready to Play "Ready to Wash"
On Labor Day, 8 years ago, my wife went into labor. She's always had a great sense of timing. Makes sense as she's an actor, singer, and lover of all performing arts.
I had just started my first band, "The Killer Hats", and we had to do a little hiatus so I could figure out how to be a dad.
While, I tried to stay active with the Hats, being a dad made it challenging. Especially when the next child came. And the one after that.
But now that my eldest child is 8 and his siblings are 5 and 3, I'm ready to get back into playing music. In fact, I'm already doing it. Last fall, a fan asked to me to play at the church we both attended.
My set lists usually contain songs with all kinds of topics. Some would call it "Secular". But this fan recognized all of my references to Judas and Pontius Pilate and she also hung on to the songs that mention Jesus and God.
I wasn't sure if a church would let me play. And I wasn't sure what I would play. But the seed was planted.
