Oh, wait, we kind of are like that … as parents!"
My Life as a Mommy Rockstar
I didn’t realize that it was going to make me famous. It started off as six women who liked to play music getting together once a week, working on some songs and having fun. Then we started getting some gigs, you know, playing Melava Malkas for parent-teacher events, or for society events for the older ladies in the community. While these were paying gigs (sweet!), it wasn’t like I was a household name or anything.
Then we started planning our big concert. We had committees, we had many, many, mannnny rehearsals. We had staging, choreography, costume changes, guest artists. We had a professional sound tech and videographer. We had major publicity.
