Your favorite band stories:

Either playing at Nino's in downtown SLC with Escape and just starting the song "Where are you Now" which called for a key transpose to start. Our keyboardist at the time forgot to hit the transpose key on her keyboard which meant she was in a different key than the guitarist(Ted Hunting), and bass(Chris Christofferson). As the lead vocal I started to sing where the guitar and bass were, and they decided to drop to the key where our keyboardist was. She in turn didn't know they were going to make the key change, and she hit the transpose button just as the guitar and bass went to the key she was in. So bascially a flip flop and unfortunately very tough to sing when everyones jumping around in different keys...we ended up stopping the song and taking an early break....lol. We can really laugh about it now, not so funny at the time.

Also the time with Jake In Space driving all the way to Vernal just to find out they double booked and the other band was already set up. Paul Jones, Joel Stevenett, Ted Hunting and I ended up at the local Mexican resturant laughing that we could have found good Mexican food 3 hours closer than driving to Vernal to eat dinner. Fun times.
