OBB performed last night at The World Fellowship Center in Albany, New Hampshire (near North Conway). It was an honor to perform there and we appreciated the appreciative audience!

Thank you to those who joined us at the West End Lounge last night for our second OBB gig -- particularly since it turned out to be a late night! :)
We were a bit crowded on stage (and we didn't even have a drummer) and there were some logistical issues with the venue, but, by most accounts, we sounded decent and everyone had a good time. Most importantly, this gig featured the debut of three new OBB performers -- vocalist Wendy Ward, guitarist Doug Murphy, and keyboard player Jay Katz. In Ms. Ward's case, this gig was her very first performance as a vocalist with a band!
