Billy's Band - Ivyside
Matt and Andy found Billy through a mutual friend and had him haul his drum set up to Andy's house to "audition". Hmmm, I think that was around Thanksgiving or Christmas. They write and play a lot of their own music, and throw in a few Green Day songs and a couple Blink 182 songs. When they are practicing in our basement you can hear them play all kinds of crazy little ditties! I do believe I heard a bit of Ironman the other night...so someone likes *my* kind of music! :) AND, they go through a lot of Mountain Dew and pizza!
Anyway...they played at the Elks Club on Saturday night. This was Billy's first "professional" gig and he had a blast! Their myspace has lots of great comments on it...so I'm going to venture out on a limb and tell you that they DID GREAT! These pics were taken at that performance by Gretchen and Randy; newspaper reporters and a fellow "band parents" (marching band). Gretchen emailed them to Billy...so I just had to steal them for my blog! THANKS GRETCHEN & RANDY...for the great pics!
