The electronics section is coming out. We've been living a lie. For years we've told you all that we love electricity. But we have never told anybody that we play both ways. For the past year, we've had unprotected sectionals with accordions. We have become the transsectionals of the band. In accordance with this new lifestyle, we are going to come up with a name that more adequately describes who we are ("Rhythm Section" sounds nice, but we need time to discover ourselves), and what we do.
You might also notice some changes in how we act. We're trying on a lot of new configurations and keeping the tags because we have a lot of freedom to do so. We have people who can play piano, guitar, bass, and accordion. It's only natural that we would want to dabble in pop music. It's everything that a budding section wants: fast, cheap, and easy.
Also, we may have a lot of unusual instruments in our closet that you've never seen before. We've got a purple electric violin with five strings. One of our members has a 24" bass. We've even got an '80s synthesizer. (Be careful with that one though, it may start spurting 80s synthesized drum beats all over the place, and you don't want that).
So that everybody can see the changes we're making, we have a cart to put amps and stands in, and rolling bases for our pianos. It works for us, (unless it rains, in which case we break out kazoos).
Thank you for supporting us in this time of change. If you want to
get involved with us, email the gentleman on the right of this screen.
He looks far more normal in person.
Wear your sunglasses,
The Electronics/Rhythm/Transectional Section
