The annual band fundraising event was last night, the numbers are in, and it appears to have been a raging success. Now we can afford to keep the band supplied with hemp* and seasoning** for another year.
I got many compliments on the sound of the band and the overall success of the event, and in response I can only say: It was mostly not me.
There’s a lot going on behind the scenes, and so many people have a role in keeping the band functioning, it would be impossible for one person to do it alone. From the music, to the organization and structure, to the individual members that take the time to actually pick up their instrument and practice: all the individual sacrifice isn’t really apparent until you dump the whole group together in a sweaty mess and try to create emotion out of chaos. (PM secret: the harder they work, the more I’ll push them. Shhh. don’t tell anyone.)
So, officially, in recognition of all the support of our fans, and on behalf of my team of ultimate badasses, I say: Thank you.
*No, not that kind.
**Not that one, either.
