The Company Band

I suppose such things happen often enough.

A bunch of folks at work find they have a little (very little? 🙂 common musical ground and so does the department administrator, who puts them all together in front of everyone to entertain at the next luncheon, resulting in a weekly practice session, resulting in a company band!

We had a great time playing for the company pot-luck luncheon last week; even though we had a pretty eclectic mix of acoustic and electric bluegrass / blues / country / pop sounds going on.

I’m looking forward to what we can work out. Next thing on our to-do list – what will we call ourselves?

More later when (if?) it develops…

About Phill Gibson

I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown. I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles. I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
