we salute you!
ok, so we had to see what all the hub bub is with the game Rock Band. we invited some friends over to our “school of rock” to shek it out mang. no one in our ohana had ever seen this game before (let alone played it). Rain jumped on the drum set and starting rockin.
she was locked in. it was crazy. rain totally did awesome keeping time with the beat. she was like a female version of a young NEIL PEART.
there was a rare aaron sighting so we snapped this PHOTOGRAPH to prove he still exists. we discovered very quickly that whenever aaron isn’t blogging (quite often) he’s playing in rock band tournaments. he pretty much destroyed us all on the drums.
aaron and his better half samantha both rocked. the beautiful and talented samantha is a HOT TEACHER by day and a lead vocalist for “love lamp” by night. that’s right, rain made up a band named “love lamp.”
here’s a little “fun fact” you may not know about our super fun friend alyssa. she is an awesome substitute high hat. :)
she also has the cutest smile of any adult we know, AND she wails on guitar. her 7+ minute long face-melting guitar ERUPTION solos totally almost melted our faces. she was our resident “goddess of the axe”.
nely challenged alyssa for best smile. she’s always so happy and fun to be around. we heart nely.
who the h – e – double hockey sticks is this guy?
oh yeah. ken and patti stopped by and provided a little entertainment (as usual). they’ve been married almost 11 years and they still act like they’re dating.
on a side note, ken is canadian & patti is german/spanish. patti said, in germanish, this means i love you. i’m not buying it. she’s not FOOLIN’ anyone.
now, back to the show.
here’s april… about to melt some faces. check out that overbite. intense.
the night wasn’t completely harmonious. somewhere around 2:45 am there was a struggle for creative control of the band. my band mates nearly split, leaving me HIGH N DRY, but after a brief cool-out session, we were reunited and pressed “on through the night.”
with me as band leader (and crushing the skins i might add) we mounted a whirlwind tour that had fans begging for more and roadies clamoring to haul our gear.
that’s not p.m. it was 3 a.m. and the rock was still rollin’. that’s noah’s reflection in the glass.
it was too bad everyone left between 1 and 2 a.m., because shortly after 3 a.m. a few guys showed up and asked to join our band. this is paul trying out on vocals. I told him he might want to think about using a stage name. he said he’ll think about it.
here’s paul and larry trying to share our little drum set. frankly, i don’t think they’re “love lamp” material.
this guy was pretty good. we let him play ONE song. i’m sure he’ll do great in some band. this band just isn’t big enough for two daves. we’ll call you…”the edge.” best of luck to you dave. :)
we were completely NUMB from jamming all night, so after those guys bailed we called it a night. we got to bed about 2 hours before sunrise. just another night at la casa del ohana. THAT’S HOW WE ROLL.
