It's a Rock Band

My son, Taylor, is 14-years-old and plays bass guitar in one of the youth bands at church. Last night was his band’s second time to play. It is SO much fun watching him up there and seeing how comfortable he’s getting in front of the audience. The band is starting to meld together, too. So here are a couple pictures:

This, apparently, is what a cool bass player looks like. You can’t tell, but his sweatshirt says “Hendrix” on it. I think there may be some unwritten rule that if you play electric guitar you must own one bit of clothing which pays homage to Jimi.

And this would be the band in its entirety. As you can see, they have a good time.

On another note, I’m still making my way through Eragon. Reading and blogging will be spotty at best this week as I’ve got company. So until the next time, ROCK ON!

    Very cool, Jen!! Maybe someday you’ll be able to share a bit of their music with us? Pilot Man would know how to do it . . . something about a wav file or such. My 15 year old nephew is also in a band, although I’ve never heard them play. He plays guitar also, although I’m not sure what type (I’m so lame, I know). Have fun with your guests and getting through Eragon!!Hugs,Jennifer, who, by the way, went to her very first air show this weekend — AWESOME!!

    How cool is that?! Christian rock is making such a breakthrough and I think it is absolutely amazing! God comes to where you are. I am friends with the guitar player (Morgan) for the Christian band Detour 180 – http://www.detour180.comAm I bragging? Yep! He is also a fabulous human being. You can tell your son that all of the chics dig the guitar players! ROCK ON WITH JEN & HER SON!! (so that kind of rhymed, right? lol)

    Todd – uh, I had a little to do with him :o)Aim – He wanted to be Slash for Halloween. lol Jennifer – I’ll have to ask Todd about playing music on the blog. Taylor plays both bass guitar and lead guitar (electric and a little accoustic). But he’s the bass player for this band. Some day I figure he’ll be playing lead, though.Jodi – Geesh! You know all the famous people! Or at least you know the people who know the famous people. lol And that’s EXACTLY what I told him. “Chicks dig a guitar player”. We’re back to those curious similarities. LOL! Great poem, BTW. :o)Jen

    This is so cool – he looks great up there! Also looks like a nice bunch of kids in the band.Will they play at other venues at church, like school, or parties, etc.?A legend is born. :-)Jayne
