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.
