I took a trip down memory lane tonight. I went to my brother’s, friend’s band practice. When I was in high school I was a groupie for any band that happened to practice in my friend’s basement. I listened through probably 3 different bands and at least 5 different band names. I remember that the window was broken where they practiced and I spent many a chilly night squished and cramed onto a couch by the broken window and behind a broken water heater. If only that water heater had worked!! I was freezing, and I couldn’t hear a thing afterwards, but it was fun!
I had forgotten, until tonight, the amazing energy that comes from listening to good, live music played by people you know. In highschool I was always too self concious to really let go and enjoy the music head nods and all, and tonight I found myself slipping back into that mode. Once I did let go though, and just relax, I had the greatest time.
So, the band is called Funk and Gonzo, and they’re really, really good. I dig their sound. They’ve got tallent and they’re all great people. Check them out: FUNK & GONZO (click on link). They are playing at Music Go Round just off of Fort Union Blvd. on Saturday night. I’m going to try to be there. You should too. 😉
