Hi-school rockers hosted Hospeace House event

The Funk Uncle band that is made up of four high school classmates, Sawyer, Will, Alex and Bryan hosted a coffee house last night to benefit a local Hospeace House. It was a blast! Their music was enjoyed by all. All proceeds that were raised during the event benefit the Hospeace House, which is a NYS certified four-bedroom home for the terminally ill.

This group, who started playing together about a year and a half ago, plays a jazzy and funky sort of music. On this video is Sawyer, who plays slap-style bass, Bryan on rhythm guitar and vocals, Will, our son and the lead guitarist and Alex, who mans the drums.

Oh, I must tell you, our son also plays soccer (goalie) and on their homecoming day a couple of weeks ago, it was a sort of tradition for the boys varsity team to cut their hair Mohawk style! However, after a week or so, he asked me to cut it off, which we prefer anyway. But before I shaved it off, I said, "Wait, I'd like to take a picture first" which he graciously obliged! :)


... and here's the video, it's a little bit longer than my previous post.

Neal Schon...er...Will is great with the guitar. Will he continue playing with the band after high school? That music they played is really funky.

There you are again beaming with pride.

Hi Nance, have fun with the teen agers! :)

Thanks for visiting. Longwood Gardens is in Kenneth Square, PA, malapit lang sa yo. Close to Wilmington DE. We had to drive about 7 hours from Pittsburgh, with a toddler, and we stopped every hour and a half. It was worth it. We'll be back every season, hopefully, winter weather will allow it pero mukhang malabo for now. We bought a one year family pass....

balik ako.....may nakalimutan ako.

ang ganda ng idea mo, yon squash, nilagyan ng flowers, as vase...hindi ba?---right side ng blog mo.

GOOD idea..........

subukan ko nga...presently, wla or hindi pa masayadong squash dito sa amin.

pag meron, gawain ko ito..........sana marami rin mga bulaklak sa normal store lang...i mean hindi sa flowers shop-...mahal kasi sa flowers shop.
mabuti sa supermart or sa markt,mura kaunti....

thanks again.

Nance said...

Hi mari,
he keeps changing his mind. at one pt. he wanted to be a music teacher, then changed it to an architect who knows, he's now a sophomore so, we'll wait and see.

Nance said...

Tracy, thanks! yeah, warms my heart that he puts his energy into music instead of something else. thnks for the visit!

Nance said...

thanks red! they made up some of their music.

Nance said...

hi jean,
7 hrs, that's quite a drive. we are about 5 hrs drive to DE kaya mas malapit nga kami. sometimes family pass is the way to go.

Nance said...

hey nona,
you're already added my friend!
yes, that was the good thing about it ... helping others.
so your older site is back? hafta go and check it out!

Nance said...

vk,
how r u? yong ibang music nila, imbento lang nila.
wala ding nag trick or treat sa amin, kasi nasa back road ang bahay namin, saka magkalayo ang mga bahay. mga bata punta sila sa mga condo o apt. complex kasi magkalapit ang mga bahay mas safe pa. malamig na rin dito lalo na sa gabi pero sa araw puwede pang naka-sweater lang.

Nance said...

ev,
nice to see you back!yeah mom & dad are quite proud of him, he is a nice, responsible son (ahem) :)

Vk-mahalkaayo said...

ay dito, nance, malamig na.

ako naman si KUroy?....gusto kong hindi lumabas, kay hindi pwede.

Happy sunday sa inyo..........regards
