I Joined a Band!!

Well, I joined my first band today since high school. ;) I met my band mate, Doug, at Guitar Center one day (as we share the same sales guy). He invited me over to see his gear and to jam a few times and we started keeping in touch. So one day out of the blue he invites me to this audition for a guitar spot in a Classic Rock band he's putting together. I ultimately ended up declining the offer since I really have no musical repertory to speak of, and certainly not when it comes to Classic Rock.

So after a second invitation I end up going to the audition with not one single song worked up. ;) They seemed to like me in spite of this, and actually let go of another candidate they were looking at. So now I am in a band! ;) I have a lot to learn and I am looking forward to getting all the experience that comes with it. I really like all the guys in the band and I feel like it could be one of the rare experiences where the whole band gets along really well.

We have yet to name ourselves, but we have some ideas already. More to come as the details unfold.

  2. Its about time you got in a band. Jonathan and I have been trying to get you
    to do that for years. I think it is great that you have finally got in to one.
    Let me know if you cut a cd, and i will buy one.

    If you ever find that moby dick song. I would love to have a copy. If ever
    the both of you are in town let us know. You will have a place to stay.
    Give your wife a hug for me. Hope to see you soon!

    your friend always

    When is your first gig!!!!!


  4. Hey Andy! Long time no speak.

    Hope all is well with you and the family. Yep, I finally joined a band. Our first gig is August 16 in Millington. Should be fun (and nerve racking). ;)

    Thanks for stopping by the blog! I found that tape, BTW, and plan to get it into a digital format as soon as I find the time to. I should be able to take it from my old Tascam 4 track (the one we used to record it with) and from there into the computer. I'll send you the mp3s when I get 'er done.

    Take care!
