Just wondering...

Does Beady actually "feature" your kids, or are they equal members of the band along with the others and you're just being a Dad?

Jordan (my son) and another fella started Beady. Then Sarah (my daughter) and the other fella's younger brother joined in.

The other two brothers are gone (mostly - an amicable parting of the ways, they might still show up now and then, we'll see...), now, but Beady continues. Jordan and Sarah have added two other friends to the mix.

Most of the songs on the album were mostly written by Jordan.

So, I'm not sure of the point of the question, but they are Beady. Hopefully, that answers your question.

You said that the band features your kids. Usually, when a band features an individual (or two), it is that individual that the band wishes to spotlight so as to gain the best chance as acceptance by the consuming public, as it is believed that individual is the real draw. For example: The Amboy Dukes, featuring Ted Nugent. Do they advertise, "BEADY, featuring THE TRABUE KIDS!", or just "BEADY"?

I'm thinking a better and more accurate way of wording it would have been "An album review for the first CD from Beady (the band in which my kids are members)" or words to that effect. Ain't no thang. I think your response answers the question. You're just being a Dad. That's cool. I was just wondering. My first band had a guitar player so good that I thought it would have been a good idea to feature him on purpose. To hold him up as the driving reason people needed to come see us. But as he proved to be a big pain in the ass that sucked all the fun out of the enterprise, it became a moot point, because we dumped him. Featuring someone is a marketing thing, that's all.

I did not intend it in a marketing sort of way, just by way of telling folk out there who may not have heard me mention them before that this is my kids' band.

That's all I was askin'.
