Awkward Pause is not really the name of Davy's new band. Since they don't actually have a name, they kept announcing phony names. Jimmy came up with Awkward Pause and it was my favorite. Though I think it should be spelled Awkward Paws. None of that mattered in the least though, because everyone at Kulak's Woodshed in North Hollywood that night was too busy being totally entranced with these kids and their entire first performance!
Now you may just think I'm saying that because I'm Davy's mom and I'm so proud and blah, blah, blah. I admit I am so proud of that boy. Like I said recently in this post, "Davy's lyrics are scribbled on his pages straight from his heartstrings. His heart is a well, never running dry of what must be expressed." I don't know how else to say it. It's just a passion inside of him that's so strong it has to come out and be intertwined with music and lyrics. It's a mighty force. And that force combined with his talented and brilliant bandmates blew everyone against the wall.
So that magical night was: Davy on vocals, mandolin, and guitar. Jimmy Melnarik on bass guitar and vocals. Amelia Shelton on violin and vocals. Henry Webster on violin and vocals. And many dear friends who drove to support them there - that was so awesome - and others who watched their live performance via the internet. Barry and Steve, the other artists performing that night as well, who generously gave Davy's band the okay to perform in the first place - and Davy's dad and his band, who gave them half their time. What a wonderful evening it was!
We can't wait for your next performance!
