Thanks, everyone. :)

I'm south, in Windsor, Ontario. Right across the river from Detroit, MI.

What do you play? My husband is a drummer. He studied at Humber in their jazz program. (He later became a mold maker apprentice and has been a mold designer for almost 20 years). He plays in a couple of bands. One's metal and the other is more "groovy" apparently. This second band is a newer incarnation of some of the guys he plays with, and as such, have not heard them yet, though there are plans for a gig in the coming months. Their plans were delayed a bit when their studio flooded and they had to move. They're just starting to practice again.

Yeah. My lullabies were similar, though my mother's favourite composer is Debussy, so I heard a LOT of Debussy. She was a concert pianist before she was hit by a drunk driver and he ruined her shoulders.

I'm a drummer also. And a singer. R&B, Blues,Pop,Rock,Country. I've pretty much played it all over the years. Bars, weddings, festivals, etc. I am currently in three bands. I play most weekends. I also went to Humber College. Not for music though. I was a Funeral Director for a few years back in the 80's. Got my training there....that was many moons ago. I've been in the restaurant business for a few decades now...

Nice! I'm glad to see you kept the music in there. Music is important. I'm surprised you have time for gigs being in the restaurant business. My experience in the service industry showed me that it's really crappy hours. :)

If you're into watching documentaries about Canadian bands, a documentary was made about my husband's old band (recently broken up after fifteen years). I think you can rent it on-line. So bizarre watching it. At least, I find it so, 'cos I know all of the guys in the band.

It used to be crappy hours, but I ended up with my own place and made sure I had the evening off. Currently, I manage a deli and meat shop which is closed at 6 p.m. Sundays off. Over the years I have gone to work many times on 2-3 hours sleep...I'll check out the video..thanks...

I have only ever sang at one dinner party and that was at Christmas time. I decided to sing O Holy Night, but it was late into the night and a ridiculous amount of wine had been consumed and I forgot half of the words and had no breath control. It was awful, really.

I'm on the other side of the province--a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Ontario-Quebec border. Nice to have another person from Ontario taking part in this forum!
