Hey thanks a lot guys!

The singer is my sister-in-law and she has never played with a band before. In fact the only singing she has done has been alone in her car. I've known her 10 years and had no idea she had a voice until a few months back haha.

Wow thanks for the kind words.

I am trying to convince her to play out but she is really shy and has stage fright...
