"What? I thought you wrote about cooking?" he responds (in my imaginary conversation.)
"Yeah, but I write about other stuff too. That's the "life" part of the title. So yep, you're on the blog. You and your band! Isn't that cool?" I happily respond.
And then he watches the attached video and is not happy with me, due to the poor quality of the recording and shoddy film work.
I shrug my shoulders and just give him my best. "Dude, you're a rock star!" I say.
Last weekend we hosted my sister and her family. They were in town so my brother in-law could have a reunion with his college band mates, for a 20-yr "gig" reunion at a local hole-in-the-wall pub in the South Bay.
Mike's band was quite popular back in the day at UCSB. The Groove was "the band" at many, many functions from bars to sorority events, like the Gamma Phi Beta Ice Cream Socials.

Way to go Mike (and band) I hope it's not another 20 years before we hear you again. And hopefully Bruce (lead singer) will post his video. Which I'm sure is much better than what I got.
I wanna go back to college and be a "Groov" groupie again!! Isn't the trumpet player cuuuuuute?! :-) Thanks again for coming out to see the Groov!ReplyDelete
