I'm a Groupie!!!!

Kevin is in a new band and they had a gig Friday night. COOL!

For those of you who may not know, Kevin is an amazing drummer. He's been drummin' for countless years and has been in several bands. A couple of months ago he went to watch some friends and their band play at a local club. He was invited up on stage to play a few songs. There was a guy there who was literally walking out the door and then heard Kevin start playing. He immediately turned around, sat down and the minute Kevin came off stage, introduced himself and asked if Kevin was currently in a band. As luck would have it, he wasn't so they started talking, and then rehearsing and, well ... Friday night was their debut.

They were fantastic! This particular band has played at this club numerous times and there are a ton of 'regulars' who've seen them many a time, so when Kevin showed up, they were all commenting about the 'new' drummer. I kinda got the impression that they weren't really, ahem, thrilled - until they heard him play. Everyone kept coming up to him all night telling him how great he sounded, what a difference from the last drummer, etc. He was thrilled! And I was thrilled for him =)

Vicky came over and we went down and watched until close to midnight. Linda and Jerry came to watch, too (thanks guys!). It was a fun night and the Frater Band will be having more gigs soon. Stay tuned!
