VEAUX at home

Tonight I hosted my third house concert. It was a group that I have been following for a while now but never had a chance to see in person. A couple of months back they put out that they were looking for places to play; and I said if they wanted to come to Oklahoma, I’d love to host them.

In the immense excitement of it approaching, I also have to admit to being a little intimidated and terrified.
