Community

A customer told me yesterday that I have a “great job”. It really is a great job overall–even though there are lousy aspects to it as with all jobs. Lots of paperwork, mundane webstore upkeep, etc.

However, dealing with customers and the music community as a whole really contribute to making this a “great job”. Earlier in March, Fat Tone Guitars hosted a community Battle Of The Bands. We invited two local bands from the high school in our neighborhood and rocked out with a couple hours of teenage tuneage.

First up was Outer Limits–a band of 5 guys–who played mostly original guitar oriented rock music influenced by 60s and 70s pop rock, the Stones, and a little bit of garage rock. These guys were good.

Next up was New July, a unique sextet made up of 3 guys and 3 girls who threw down some poppy, melodic, upbeat tunes also reminiscent of 60s and 70s pop. These guys were good too.

As with all Battle Of The Bands, there was a winner here but it doesn’t really matter who–both bands were great, with talent beyond their years. I wish them luck.

Fat Tone Guitars will be hosting more Battles in the coming months.
