I am so proud of the utterly amazing Jules Galli and am so grateful to be in this incredible band (www.julesgalli.com). Here we are rocking the first song of our set of original music to a riveted crowd at the gigantic Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena. I am on backing vocals and then have a violin solo halfway through the song. By the end of the night, the entire audience was on its feet, dancing and shrieking the lyrics along with us. This was an absolutely life-changing and unforgettable experience. Arenas, here we come! Thank you so much to Johnny Angel for the wonderful video!
