So...is it a break if you work the whole time...?
I went back home to New Orleans for Spring Break and had gig after gig. I can't complain though! It's what I love to do!
It was the good kind of busy ;)
Every time I'm home, I have gigs waiting on me, which is a great feeling. It always feels good to come home and play with childhood pals.
I play with Delfeayo Marsalis and the Uptown Jazz Orchestra mostly, as well as my own group. And there are the other gigs like private parties and such (which pay pretty well).
Don’t get me wrong, I spend as much time with my family as I possibly can. I'm always happy to see the fam!
The great thing about a break from school is that it doesn't mean you have to not do something. It's a change from the academic pace, back to real life. :) Now, I'm back and it's time to push through!
