Landing their first major gig after a grueling three weeks of band practice, Amber Waves scored an audience of 300 Navy Crew members Sunday afternoon. “It was a complete rush and well worth the hours spent in Jack’s (Riddendorfer, tubist for the band) mom’s shed! I can’t wait to do this again!” said drummer Nick Turner. “On behalf of the band I just want to thank the audience for being so great for those few minutes. Today the dock, tomorrow the Grammy Awards! Next show we’ll even mix in a couple originals! It is going to be some next level stuff!”
The ship passed by within minutes and only got to here their rendition of “America The Beautiful in Cm”, but the band was sure that they made a life altering impact on their audience. For those curious, their next gig will be in Annapolis on Thursday night. Although they are still looking for a specific venue to show up at, they guarantee they will set up and play even if they have to settle for a quick time slot at The Royal Octopus opening for local power trio Jazzsnatch.
