Well it's been a summer of tributes...I worked hard this year getting ready as a sub-in for three different shows. This year I was Nancy Wilson in Barracuda, Frida in Arrival(Abba), and Stevie Nicks in Dreams. Fun times, I had my work cut out for me but all were a great success!
Pictured are some of the amazing venues and stage shots! Click the link to get a feel of the crowds!
I love my job.
At Clearwater Casino and Resort we had a whopping 1600 people standing on their feet and singing and dancing with us...the water as our backdrop was filled with boats.... (picture from soundcheck pre-show)
what happens when you get a bunch of chick singers together ..... I`ve said it before and I`ll say it again, it`s a real blessing to work amongst so many inspiring women in my industry who are so talented, generous and wildly supportive of each other. Its hard to describe the feelings when we get together but this post will hopefully both visually and beautifully reflect that. It was about 8 months ago that my friend Layla from L E Photography first told us at one of her and our friend Catherine`s Chick Singer gatherings (wine tasting, appies and clothing swaps), that she envisioned all of us girls in a glamour shot together each of us representing our respectful collective as well as our own individual styles. In love with the idea we came to find out the its incredibly difficult to organize the schedules of so many busy women but finally we nailed down a day that most of us could make. (PS There are other women who should be in these photos really, but due to travel or family obligations they were unable, just know that they were missed and included in our hearts). So with a great deal of schedule niggles, twists, turns and adjustments it finally happened. Not only was it a super fun day, filled with laughter and music but now we have amazing photos that will last forever.
