Today, Mark is currently attending classes at Berklee Online for his Bachelor's degree in Music Production; having already received his Master Certification for Singer/Songwriter. Our band consists of myself on vocals, our daughter Gillian on vocals and keyboards, and our son Lance playing bass or percussions.
As daily practice we play cover songs along with songs that we have already written. Their current set includes:
"Hello" by Karmin
"We Are Young" by fun.
"E.T." by Katy Perry
"Video Games" by Lana Del Rey
"Payphone" by Maroon 5
"Jar Of Hearts" by Christina Perri
"Someone Like You" by Adele along with many more.
I have always been surrounded by music as I was growing up as my father played in Tejano bands for 50 years. I always sang around the house and in front of my mother. Once my husband Mark joined Tops in Blue in 2007, I was inspired to take voice lessons at the Musical Arts Center of San Antonio. Since then, I have played drums, keyboard and sang for a cover group in San Antonio, performed in the 2009 Lackland Idol contest and has since played music with my children for the pure joy of it. I recently received her Berklee Online Master Certification for Singer/Songwriter and am pursuing my degree in Music Business from Berklee Online.
Our children Gillian and Lance have been learning music theory playing on keyboards, bass guitar, drums and backup vocals. Whenever they hear a song that they like on the radio, they let us know that they want to learn how to play it so we get to work. Doing this as a family is a dream come true!
