Backstage Pass

My head has been spinning these past few weeks, and this is just one of the things that has kept me too busy to write!

My band, Thom Jayne and the Nomads, was invited to be the featured performer on a televised special called, "Backstage Pass". The show has recently gone national -- I don't know exactly what "national" means, or where it will be able to be viewed, but it sounds impressive! This episode of "Backstage Pass" is due to be aired in January or February of 2011. I will keep you posted!

I guess pictures are better than words for this event, so here goes:

All the bands that participate in Backstage Pass over the course of the year are asked to sign the banner in the lobby.


We took that opportunity to take a group pic! Apparently I had to go to the bathroom. What is wrong with my legs??


One of my favorite parts of playing with any band :-)


Kelly and I dress and make good use of the Makeup Room - yes they had one!
A whole wall of mirrors surrounded by lights, very fun.


It was cool to see the stage setup!


Another picture once we got all dressed up!

In the green room waiting to go on:










Finally the cameras roll!














Then I came home, scrubbed a pee stain in the carpet,
did a load of laundry and attacked the pile of dishes in the sink.

But it's all good, ya know? :-)

Oh my gosh, this is too cool. Great pics and love it that your band is getting recognition. Hubby and I went to CD Baby awhile ago and listened to your music and it is great. I don't know why I didn't get some of your music then. I will go back to CD Baby now and get some of your music. Maybe the CD. Anyway, we like your music so much. We don't have TV but there must be some way for us to watch this episode online. Hugs to you and the rest of the band.

I downloaded the CD on iTunes, now I can listen all the time. Hubby loves the drummer's work in this and the guitars too. I love the beat and the combination of the different sounds. I sent the link to your blog to some friends too and told them to listen to the music.

I wish I could have been there! You look beautiful despite the fact you were doing the potty dance. And the set is so professional and totally rock star-ish. xoxo I'm proud of you.
