That One Time I Tried To Start A Band..
By Marcus Wheat
Random Story Time: I knew from an early age that I wanted to do something in music, but what I didn't know was what in music I wanted to do. There were times where I wanted to be a composer, or teacher, or songwriter, or trumpet player in a symphony, or in a jazz band. I didn't think too much about actually making hip-hop music until I was in college. When I was in the 5th grade I had a group of friends that were all in beginners band like me. Only difference was, they weren't really in to music like I was. I was (and probably still am) a band nerd. So anyways I had a birthday coming up and with this group of friends I wanted to start a band and our plan was to perform in our neighborhood park. I remember my mom helped me make some flyers to post around the neighborhood and I gave some to my friends that had instruments. I was so excited! I just wanted to make music for fun with my friends.
So the day came for us to meet. I get to the park and... It's empty. At first I thought maybe everyone was late. Long story short the whole neighborhood blew me off lol. When I asked them about it "they forgot". As a kid being in a band seemed like something cool but I figured it was beyond the realm of possibility.
Fast forward to now.. I guess I always knew I wanted to start a band lol
