This past weekend, my kids had their triannual School of Rock performances. Norah performed in the “Left of the Dial” show, singing and strumming the 80s pre-Nirvana alt groove. Not to be outdone, Donovan made his stage debut playing keyboards in the Rock 101 band (with Big Sis backing him on the drums).
A few observations.
- I’m not sure where they came from, but Norah’s got a set of pipes and is quickly learning how to use them.
- Donovan might not have music in his future, but, as you’ll see, the kid’s got stage presence.
- Having never taken a drum lesson, Norah did herself proud behind the kit for two songs.
If you’re inclined, you can watch the entire 12-song Left of the Dial set here.
