Time Off for Jamming

Aside from my work at the farm and being a 7th grade Language Arts teacher, I also enjoy playing music.  This past weekend I was able to jam with some friends who I've known musically for many years.  We got a chance to put together some tunes and I sat in for their show in New Haven.  We were able to practice twice in our barn where I have a small jam area set up inside of my workshop.  At the show we played a variety of covers from the Grateful Dead, the Funky Meters, Bob Marley, and even a Phish tune as well as some of the band's original tunes.  My dad came down for the night to watch the kids so Erica and I had a night of music on our own.  Thanks Dad!  I had a blast and hope to do it again sometime soon. 

In other music news, some students at school who have a "garage band" of sorts have challenged some of us teachers to a "battle of the bands."  This will take place this Wednesday just before the students are dismissed to the buses.  It is a twist on the more classic "students vs. teachers soccer match."  The "teacher band" put togther three tunes and we hope to fair well.  Though I am a self-proclaimed "Music Pacifist" I will be partaking in this "battle" as I climb behind my drum kit.  Wish us the best...
