Prom!

Our friend Tony is the best. Tony is the bass player in Joey's band Skypark, and is a high school French teacher at Diamond Bar High School. Tony discovered one of his student's amazing musical talents and has been encouraging him in them. Tony is teacher of the century in my opinion...he got Garrett (the student)a really sweet gig...his Senior Prom! Not only did he get him the gig, he got him a back up band and pay. And that band was none other than Tony,Keith(drummer for Skpark) and Joey!They practiced every Saturday for awhile and learned Garretts' music. It was held at The House of Blues which made it that much more exciting to play. It was awesome!! The minute they entered the stage, the crowd went crazy! The high schoolers whose hands were glued to their dates' butts were now raising high in the air in rock-n-roll happiness :) It was great to see the guys play together, they were awesome as always, and it was especially awesome to know that this was probably something that will impact Garrett for the rest of his life! Anyone who comes in contact with Joey Keith Tony (and Tyrone even though he wasn't here for this one) can't go away from that time without being impacted. There has always been and will always be something special about those four :) I am so proud of them!! And Garrett ROCKED!!

I was the photographer for the evening. Here are the rockers:
