Thanks for writing about our concert!
I think we'll have a large audience of high school students but people over 18 are definitely welcome. I don't know if it is a further incentive or disincentive but we've added choreography to Clapping Music. Thanks for your excellent blog, I'm sorry you can't join us.

haha. it's funny that you're gripping with the fact that these kids weren't even alive in the mid-70's. it's a pity that just about all of the music they played was written before they were born, or for that matter, before i was born (1984).

i think there is a real problem with the contemporary music scene in that there is no scene. if a tree falls and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? no.

the same goes for what so many of us long for: a contemporary idiom of music that speaks to our younger generation of music lovers. when i say younger, i guess we could say anyone under the age of 50. but hell, i'm sure there are plenty of older people who have a void in their souls as well. it just doesn't exist.

well, at least you posted about this group. it's a good start. :)
