With all the musically inclined people here it would stand to reason that some of you have been in some type of band. So just wondering what was the name of the band, what type of music and how far did you make it? As for me I played in the school band in Jr High (trombone FTW) and in the last year I took up Bass guitar in the Jazz band. It was a lot of fun and we were pretty good. In the transition to High school I gave up the school band to continue playing football. I managed to hang on to the axe and started my first band with some school mates. It lasted 3 yrs and we started to record a demo, we performed a lot, but it was usually in front of our friends at house parties. The name of the band: Fork Union. My second band was a little better and it was started in collage with a really good friend of mine. We started as a two person band (we didn’t know a drummer at the time) and was able to do a crappy demo, but needed a drummer for shows. After putting an ad in the paper, we found a guy who played really well and ‘no Whammies’ was born. We recorded a full length CD (independent) and played a few shows. Then we were lucky enough to record a song for a national TV show that was going to do a video and the works, but after recording it, the network dropped it because our song was too ‘hard’ , they purchase the rights to the song and essentially jazzed it up with horns and such. We even shot a video and it never got off the ground. We played the equitant of southern California Punk rock. Much like NoFX and Face to Face. After this time, my son was born and my friend stated university so it was a bust. We had a lot of fun and made some money in the process. If I can figure out how to upload music I will include my favorite song that we did. So how about you?
