I don't play myself anymore (used to play piano many moons ago), but my fiance has been a hardcore musician for most of his life, and for a while when I part owned a club in the Strip, I was surrounded by musicians 24/7 it seemed (which is how I met him in the first place lol). I try not to remember much from that overly hectic time, but the coolest night by far was when Acumen Nation played. Speaking for him, I would say that the number of times that Singine (the band) opened for Acumen Nation and DJ? Acucrack was probably some of the cooler experiences he's had.

He plays bass, guitar and some drums...even though he doesn't do much with the band anymore.

Drummer and lead vocalist. I've been in and out of the scene since I was 15, but not much recently. Have a couple people I jam with on occasion, but nothing formal at this point.

The high point came early on. We entered a battle of the bands when the oldest kid in our band was 16 (I was 15). The competition was all serious-minded adult bands, some real pro's, and we lapped the field, won every award. The problems of being a kid band started right after when we discovered that the grand prize, playing in a real club, was strictly off-limits because we were all too young to perform!

I won a couple vocal awards in college. Played in a few top-40 bands. Nothing big, though...the one constant is a love of music and performing. That'll never die...

LOL....no way did I attempt to do both! I play the drums, but I have always been the lead vox in all the bands I've been in....JUST the lead vox.

I've played around in practice with it, and you have to have both down COLD, I mean forwards and backwards and able to sing/play in your sleep to pull it off. I think I was able to do it for like two songs, and both were very basic back beat 2/4 drum parts. Al the bands had a drummer so it was never necessary anyway.
