We Sing at Altu’s Tonight!

Brian and I have had a busy week with our musical act, The Fabulous Heftones. We sang at a private luncheon on Tuesday. Here’s a photo of us at that event:

Friday we were on the radio (WLNZ 89.7 FM) in the morning for one song, then at the new City Market for the lunch hour (also on the radio). From 2-4 we sang at Foods for Living, a favorite healthy-food grocery in East Lansing (love them- they are employee-owned now, too).

Today/Saturday, we return to our “home venue.” We sing at Altu’s Ethiopian Cuisine in East Lansing (for locals, this is on Michigan Ave., between Frandor and Harrison Rd.). If you are interested in hearing us but not sure what Ethiopian food is like, you can read their food “Frequently Asked Questions” web page.

I hope to see a few of you there! It’s much more fun with friends in the audience. If we haven’t met in person before, please introduce yourself.

    holy crap! I never noticed before that not only is your Heftone bass a 5-string, but it’s fretless as well.

    dang, woman! I already admired you. :-)

    (p.s. please tell the hubby he hasn’t slipped an inch on my ukulele heroes list. wish I was in Michigan to hear you live.)

    A fretless is great when one single string goes out of tune in the middle of a set.

    Had 4 strings on the first 2 or 3 Heftones I played. One was fretted. First one had weed-whacker cord as strings. Each string was a diff. color, loved that. However, with friction pegs, Brian had to tune the E, I wasn’t strong enough.

    Have had this one for a year and a half. She doesn’t have a name yet, but Brian’s dad made her just for me (thinner neck for my small hands) and I think this is my keeper bass.
