Can you say "High School Reunion Band"? LOL!!
« on: October 06, 2011, 06:47 PM »
OK, this isn't much to brag about, but.....

I am getting together this weekend with some old bandmates to play at my 30th high school reunion.  I haven't played with these guys since 1986!  Some other folks will be stiing in I'm sure.  I wonder what I'm getting paid. ;)

Should be fun.  Nobody will be paying attention to the band anyway, right?

It's funny you brought this up. I answered two adds looking for a drummer. Last night I got a call from that person. As it turns out, she plays in an old time band doing polkas/waltz's, etc. She was in the same high school band in the mid 1960's....She had graduated a few yrs. before me. Small world for sure. Today she's bringing over an accordian and jamming with me for a short time. If I get the gig it's being recorded for a TV spot and she says it will be shown on cable a few times over the next year. Sure hope I remember her.  :-[

I was one of the sit in guys at my 30th reunion. The song? My Old School of course!
Now let's go out there and melt some faces!

a couple of shots without cymbals, singers or guitars in front of my face!

Good fun.  People seemed to like it despite little practice and not playing with each other for 25 years!
