I have the urge to cancel our MySpace account… the new design is devastating (the “clean” version takes away a lot of the character that kept MySpace musicians sticking to it). I’m thinking an actual Mon Cheri website is to come soon??? Anyone that could assist in the technical stuff on this would be greatly, IMMENSLY appreciated. We would buy you presents and booze, promise! If you’re interested in helping us out (you don’t need to be a designer, just know how to work the back end of a site?!) PLEASE email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
So recording has taken a slow turn due to snow and ice (our last drive home from our Crocodile show in Seattle took us 9.5 hours, not kidding. That’s so scary, especially for a drive that usually takes only 4 to 5 hours!). Now, with all the holidays etc., we aren’t going to be able to get back in the recording studio until early January (probably the 8th and 9th if weather permits)! What to do?! I am concocting new design ideas: new WordPress design, new business cards, the website design, poster designs, and we’re starting to put together ideas for the new album! I hope that can keep us busy during this lack of recording. I could go stir crazy!
Of course, practicing new songs, playing weddings, playing random events and even engagements (swoon!) has kept us busy as well. I admit that playing weddings (and playing WHILE people propose to their significant other!) is one of my favorite things to do. It is one of the most intimate shows a band can play, where songs actually mean something to someone. As a band, we are blessed that people ask us to join them on their wedding days. Their love gets passed on to us, in a way. Not to sound corny or anything *ahem* but I feel like experiencing others love on such a special day brings the band that much closer. We are the best of friends, first and foremost, and we get to keep building that friendship through our music… I wouldn’t give that up for anything.
Here are just a couple of photos from the most recent wedding we played (for Jae and Bee) by the most fabulous Sara Renee (please don’t hesitate to visit her site for the full effect, even if you don’t know these people, these photos will make your heart sing: http://www.sararenee.com )
Now go enjoy the rest of your day with a smile on your face! And if you didn’t get the chance to see this before Christmas, here is a little song we wrote:
