Their set up
took 2 hours. Amps, instruments, computers, soundboards you name it they
have it. They are 15 years old, five guys and 2 dads. The dads are like
rock and roll little league coaches. Theyíd both been in bands 20 years
ago. Their band now is their sons. Are these 2 dads doing their sons a
service or are they coddling the band? Will this band ever be able to set
up itís own gear without roadies? Do they really need 2 computers to run
the sound board? They arenít the Rolling Stones and this is hardly
The dads had
once rocked. For one reason or another they donít anymore. If you canít
do teach. These boys are getting something that most bands never get.
Support. The dads made fliers and will pack the club. The band plays
like 15 year olds, thatís what they are. One of the most over mixed show

How cool is
this for these guys rockiní out with their dads. Enjoy it now guys
because in 3 years youíll be embarrassed and want to deny it.
