Test Driving...

Well, I did a little test drive over the weekend. Test drove some new songs that is, amidst a full set including worship music at Oasis of God in St. Charles, MO. Received positive feedback on the songs. This was a solo gig.

The band is still meeting every few weeks for rehearsal. Progress has slowed a bit, but that's understandable considering all of the changes going on in our lives. First off, the Miller's have a new addition to the family in case you haven't seen any previous postings elsewhere about it. :-)  Josiah Arnold Miller joined us on 4/15/2011, weighing in a 5 pounds, 7 ounces. Right now he's just under 13 pounds, and is quite a happy little boy.

Congratulations to James A Miller Band's guitarist Steve Lamb, and his fiancee Rachel Gardner. 3 more days until their wedding. Then they're off on an adventure together. Also drummer Dan Deming and Karrie Young are engaged. Looks like they'll be tying the knot sometime next summer.

What does the future hold? Lots of diaper changes for sure. Otherwise, I'll probably be doing some more test gigs without the band in the next few weeks. Also I'll be sitting in on bass at Destiny Church, St. Louis. Dan's on vacation right now. While the guys are out, I'll be recording my demo tracks. Hopefully I'll have everything ready for them to put their creative stamp on things when they return to action. We'll resume rehearsals in full force at that time.

Hopefully by this Fall we'll be ready to reveal our hard work to the masses. Need a band for your venue, event, party, function, etc? Like a good groove, soulful sounds, and honest, philosophical lyrics? Then give me a call at 314-308-2235. Can't wait to share the new music with you.

Blessings.

James
