One day I will write a book about the life of a bandleader, more specifically, the life of a “Starlight” bandleader. What goes into our job, our lifestyle, what it takes to put it all together, how we prepare for our events, what we need to think of. I always seeĀ our bandleaders coming to the performances carrying the biggest bag (purse) I have ever seen. It makes me think of Mary Poppins, with her magic carpet bag!
I asked Sarah, Laurell, Rebecca and Claudia to tell me what they carry in their bags, so I could share it with you.

Here is the first one. From SARAH SCOTT
