Band Notes 6/3 to 6/9

What a whirlwind of a couple weeks that have just passed by! Just a couple of weeks ago we were finishing up the Lilac Parade (which turned out more eventful than any of us ever want!) and loading the trailer for So Cal and had that incredible trip in front of us. That has all come and gone with clockwork-smooth logistics, incredible experiences, and memorable performances (what trophies? :D). Although many of us caught a bug of some sort along the way, I certainly hope everyone had a wonderful time full of memories to last a lifetime ❤️

Just a couple weeks to go - but lots to do :D
