The Ups and Downs of Boy bands . . .

http://northernknightsband.com/Video.aspx

Here is a link to the video of Taran (my oldest son) and his band Northern Knights. They performed for their church youth group before a lip sync competition. They did really well. They've been together since November. Taran is the lead singer on Bass guitar. Less than a week after their performance the acoustic guitar player left their band to play with his cousin. Luckily Taran and the other band members are the music writers but they have written songs to include an acoustic guitar. It's a good learning experience for them to see that change is inevitable especially when some of the band members are off to college next year they would have to revamp anyway! So check it out it really isn't too bad.:) I was there when they practiced but they did their best in this performance which I missed because I had scouts at the same time. I think it's pretty good for kids!

Wow, that's pretty cool! I can't imagine any of my boys doing that (they just aren't musical). Hopefully the band will survive all the changes!

You are as busy as always!! I don't know how you keep up with everything. I enjoyed reading all your doings. I hope the band can pull through. They just might be famous one day!!

That is soo much fun! My little brother was in a band when he was a kid. Fond memories of him rocking out in the basement! Fun stuff!

Pretty good for a garage band! That's a great experience for them, I love they wrote their songs and made a website and everything. And the kids running to the stage and screaming was great!

Hey, I loved the video. It is so amazing that we can keep in touch with our families this way. It is great to see Taran growing up and doing things he enjoys and excelling in so many ways. I do read your blogs religiously, but I am sorry if I don't comment much, however I do have a lot to say, so I guess i should do better.
