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 Systems Engineer and part-time banjo and mandolin instructor. I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play Scruggs and melodic and am working on becoming more advanced with single string. I'm also working on 4-finger banjo, which is way off the beaten path. I would like to see more jazz techniques integrated into bluegrass situations; counterpoint, especially. So long-term, that's what I'm doing. I'm also very keen on astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, christian homeschooling, martial arts, organic gardening and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
