Last weekend was School of Rock weekend for the Hyman family. My kids showed a packed club what they’ve been working on for the past four months.
Norah never disappoints when she performs (or in life, for that matter). Some 10 year old girls play sports, some dance, some cheer ... mine just kicks ass.
Witness the power of a three-song selection from her Power Trios show, about which I heard whispers was one the best shows any of the three Cleveland-area Schools of Rock has ever done.
Not to be outdone, Donovan made his singing debut a few hours prior. I give the kid a ton of credit. He had a nervous meltdown before leaving the house that afternoon. With a lot help from Mom (and a little from Dad), he composed himself, stood up in front hundreds of strangers, and sang his heart out (complete with dance moves) on The Beatles’ I Saw Her Standing There.
The encore performance is this Sunday (Jan. 22) at Brothers Lounge. Donovan should take the stage around 4 p.m., with Norah to follow at 5:30.
