Luminara Re-cap

Yesterday the temperature here in Victoria BC was about 25' or higher...beautiful! gorgeous!

By the time I was ready to leave, huge clouds were forming in the sky. Not good news when doing an outdoors festival with an accordion.

I signed my gypsy band in, got our wristbands and our Glow, and made my way over to one of my band mates house.

All the band members showed up and we had a illumination extravaganza in the driveway, figuring out where to put our Glow, and flashing lights. Seeing the clouds, I grabbed a garbage bag from my band mates house. We then finally got on our way to arrive at Beacon Hill Park on time.

About 4 songs in it began to rain on Luminara :(

I was beginning to freak out about my accordion and luckily my boyfriend was our stage manager and had me put my accordion under a tarp he had set up. I continued to perform as we all got very soaked.

After our first set I took my accordion to the Cameron Bandshell where it lived in a Rubbermaid bin for the rest of the night.

Feeling a bit better, and having my loud megaphone in tow, I made my way to the second performance location, found the band easily since we were all so lit up! Played, and were soaked down to your underwear kind of soaked! The crowd was great! The rain certainly left just the hardcore good-timers! You know you can party if the rain doesn't stop you.

After this 2nd set we had a 45 min break. Most of us headed to the Cameron Bandshell, while the Trumpet girls went to the Sports Hut. After a bit of time Brian called me to tell me the Cricket Pitch was being striked, and Luminara was shutting down in general -all this and the rain had now stopped. The band would have been free to go, but we all agreed amongst ourselves to do one more quick set.

As we went outside to meet up with the Trumpet girls, Ariel and Jeani met up with us and stopped us. We were now given the job to lead Luminara out of the park. We attracted the biggest crowd around us, and hadn't even begun playing yet.

We started playing and Ariel waved us out of the park slowly, accumulating more crowd partiers long the way.

I can't describe the feeling of singing your heart out, being soaking wet, and looking behind you and your band and hundreds and hundreds of people following you and smiling and clapping and having themselves a great time.

Parading out of the park felt amazing.

We led everyone to the gravel field at the southend of the park, near Douglas and Dallas Rd. We continued to do a couple more big songs, a huge circle of the crowd forming all around us, and it was one huge party. At this time Ariel Rubin yells to me "You made Luminara!!!"

An unbelievable night:

A huge thank you to Rowland and Emily Morgan for having myself over to his home for his birthday party last week. Rowland and I met at a art show opening which I was playing at, and he kindly asked if I would come play at his birthday party. I accepted this great invitation and we had a fantastic time at the party.

His blog can be seen here: http://rowmorg.blogspot.com although it doesn't seem he's updated it in awhile :)


I had a BLAST on Canada Day!

The Sidney Canada Day Parade was a great time. There's nothing more fun than playing with your band, and march in a parade, people waving at you, clapping along, what a rush!!

Here is some video footage for your viewing pleasure (special credit to my Mom for dodging people on the sidewalk while she followed us down the street):

The Fifty Fifty Arts Collective had another fundraiser which I took part in called "Rock Lottery".
Here's how it worked: Twenty-five selected musicians meet in the A.M. at the arts collective. They are organized into four or five bands through a lottery-based chance selection. The bands then spend the day creating a set of original music to perform that night!

That's what I have to report... and as I promise every time -I'll try to update my blog wayyy more often!!
