Band geekiness

Even though we are the Raleigh area, our town has a great small town feel. It has a little downtown area that includes a brand new library and cultural center (where the community band I play in practices and plays). Since the cultural center opened in December, they have had a ton of things to do with families. Every Saturday they show a movie for free. The library has story hour a couple of times a week. There are art classes, cooking classes, you get my point.

Last night, the Air Force Band's Clarinet Quartet was playing in the cultural center. Seeing how much Ashley loves my concerts, I took Ashley to see them. And they were AMAZING. I know, I am totally a band geek (band camp, anyone?) but it was really cool to see them. And Ashley loved it as well. It was a little past her bedtime, so we left at intermission. I am hoping to breed my girls into little musicians against Ray's objections.

So yesterday I ordered a shirt from here that will say "Bassoon Chick" because I am a geek like that. Although I really wanted "Bassoonists Blow Big Wood", but I am guessing I would have received a lot of mean looks from other Moms for wearing that one....

Get the blow big wood shirt--it's entirely too funny to NOT get it :)

I think it's great that Ashley has your love of music and hope it contiunes to grow as she does. Great job :)

And no, you're not a geek...

Def buy the big wood shirt. Even if you wear it under something it will make you smile!

I'm with the big wood shirt, surely the other mums had a sense of humour!

Rachel said...

Lmao, we all know what happens at band camp!

It's good to introduce them to music other than what they will hear on the radio.

Buy the shirt anyway!

I spit out my water reading what you WANTED on your shirt ;-) LOL!!!! Blow big wood! HA!

And Sonia's shirts are awesome - I ordered one for my mom last xmas.

This one time, at band camp....hee hee! I think its great that your daughter likes classical music.

I'm honored and thrilled to be outfitting you in Band Geek attire (I was one myself) and if you go for the gusto, I'll make the "naughty" one as well.
Sending you an email now, sweetcheeks.

JEFF WAS A BAND GEEK.

Tuba!

I love your idea for a shirt...I don't see why you can't wear it. Women with no sense of humor will hate it and men will smile at Ray in suspicion.

Kyle is loving the guitar at school so I think we're going to get him his own and lessons for his b-day this year.

I would love it if both my kids played instruments.

Ahhh, band geeks. We had so much fun in band camp.

I can't wait to get my kids into music, against Keven's will - but oh well! I really, really hope that they carry on my passion for music. And I hope Ashely and Audrey do too!

Love the shirt, but you already knew that....
