Thread Name: BS: How Many of Us Perform With Family?
Subject: RE: BS: How Many of Us Perform With Family?
My wife Anna and I met when she joined an amateur band I was part of. We left to go pro as a duo (Telynor) and have been performing together for 18 years now. One advantage is that we tend to have the same social calendar, so date conflicts don't happen much. A disadvantage is that when we go on tour there isn't anyone left at home to take care of the cats, so we have to hire someone. We had to slowly learn the hard way to keep marital discord out of the music, and musical disagreements out of the marraige.
