Drummer and Male Lead Singer still wanted!

We Pongs are underway - learning the songs and approaching our first practice. We have nothing holding us up, but we'd still like some additional personnel.
For now, drum machines are still the plan. But it turns out that Sean owns some electronic drums! So if you're a good drummer who's willing to lower her/himself to electronic abomination, let us know!
We want to go electronic because it's true to the genre, but also because we can turn them down to a volume that won't have my neighbors calling the cops!
Phill and I can sing for now, but we still probably need a lead singer with good range and personality, who's not tied down to a keyboard. Could it be you? HUH?

Welcome Sean!

I'm extremely pleased to welcome guitarist Sean -blank- to the band! He's a really amazing guitarist and a truly dedicated musician - we'll be his 3rd current band! But we're just part-timers, so we're glad to have him however much he's available.
Sean's abilities go far beyond what most of the songs we'll play demand, so hopefully he can just sail along and not have to work too hard. But when something more kick ass and complicated comes along, there's no doubt that he'll knock it out of the park!
It may be that Sean is the last piece of the puzzle we'll need, but we're talking about getting a real drummer after all. And we'll probably need a great male singer, too. We'll see!
For now, full steam ahead!!!

Welcome Erica!

   I'm very happy to welcome our female vocalist Erica Scalmato Bodaford! Both of us were fired from Delorean Dust Covers! I was because I was opposed to playing "Soul Man" and Van Morrison songs in what I was led to believe was an 80's band, but I'm not sure about Erica. But I do know it's their loss and our gain! I also know it had nothing to do with her singing, because she's really good! I know it also wasn't her personality or stage presence because those are also great! I suspect it's because they want to move into more manly man music.
  They never gave Erica (or me) enough to do, and I always thought that was dumb. She'll definitely be busy in this band!
  I'm glad that Delorean was foolish enough to let her go, because she's going to be just right for us and definitely add to the "fun" goal of this band. AWESOME!!
