Having Children Let’s face it, male musicians can and do have children, but only if they find a partner willing to stay home and take care of their kids for them while they are out on the road making a living.

In some ways, that’s even harder, because they then have to make enough money to support not only the band, but their families back home.

For female musicians it’s a lot less acceptable to have kids.

Botti once again called the Melody Tent “one of our favorite venues in the world to play,” and, while veteran concertgoers may smile and hear that compliment as business-as-usual baloney, I get the sense Botti means it, digging the intimacy this theater-in-the-round experience gives.

Djangirov had a masterful solo during a classical/jazz fusion piece, “Variations on Bach’s Prelude in C# Major.” Botti didn’t bring out a vocalist until near the end of the first set, that being Sy Smith who belted out “The Very Thought of You.” Veronica Swift did “Embraceable You” and Jonathan Johnson sang the operatic “Time to Say Goodbye.” Smith returned near the night’s end leading all through a romp of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” with Botti plucking two enthusiastic 9-year-old girls, Hyannis’s Angelina Lessa and Centerville’s Raelyn Vincent, from the crowd to go up on stage and dance.

(After the show, they got to meet him and take photos.) It was a night of spirited music, racing across multiple genres, and witty chat.

It got me thinking – why is it that being a professional musician and having children seem to be incompatible, especially for women?

I’ve also been thinking a lot lately about touring – is it a necessary part of a band’s evolution?

It’s his name on the marquee, but with his six musicians and three guest singers he’s comprised a band of equals.

And what Botti relishes most is sharing the spotlight, having musical conversations with his players, sparking off drummer Lee Pearson, violinist Caroline Campbell or pianist Elgar Djangirov.

Stevie and I were talking the other day about the fact that all of his professional musician friends are childless.

As a member of Go Girls, I have also gotten to know many female musicians online.

If you read Peter Townsend’s recent autobiography, Who I Am, he talks about the pressures he felt to continue touring to support his wife and children.
