Nice! Rocking out/impressing the bosses sounds like an awesome combo.

Thanks guys, it was so fun.  A bunch of Asian folks in town really liked it as well.  I learned some Cheap Trick, U2, and Bon Jovi for them.  Gwen and her baby helped out and sang some original Happy Orange tunes with me.  Only had a practice Fender amp but the guitar still sounds golden through it.  Also the big boss had a super smile the whole time.  Looks like job security!  Grin

Nice singin' and playin' HappyO!  My initial response was "oh no, electric guitar and voice? this isn't gonna sound good."  You and the AO proved me wrong.  Fairly good acoustic sound out of the cheap-o amp, the AO really helps that out I'm sure.

Thanks my man!  We do the best we can with limited notice and resources.  Once we both had kids, it changed all the priorities.  Slowly we will get back into the game.  It felt good.

There's nothing like getting the opportunity to perform, no matter what size the audience.  Your voices harmonize really well with each other too!

Sounded really good, the vocals especially. Keep on rocking!
