Last night, Cliff, his sister, and I went to a benefit for our neighbor, Tyler, who has rhabdomyosarcoma cancer. We were only going to show our support for Tyler; figured we'd stick around for a half-hour or so and come back home.
However, the band started playing and sounding pretty good, and next thing you know, we'd been there for three hours.
In this video, Tyler is on drums, his twin brother Travis is playing bass guitar, and their dad is on keyboards. They are a very musical family. Country musical, that is. When their dad and his sister were growing up next door, at one point I bought an old piano just so Donnie and Ronda could come over and sing for me and with me. Their parents (Tyler's grandparents) were also excellent singers.
Here's a video of the twins' aunt, Ronda, singing. Of course you realize the quality is lacking on this type of recording, but hopefully my kids will be able to take a walk down memory lane by watching it, if nothing else.
