Mars just finished another week at Rock Academy here in Asheville. At the finale concert the kids tore the roof off with an eclectic mix eight cover songs. Mars recommended this Riptides cover from their instrumental record Mental Therapy. Very surf rock and I love it. Notice Mars’s attention to stage presence. He’s fun to watch, because he looks like he’s having fun.
This blog is about anything related to music, right? At Christmas we came down from the mountain to visit the folks in Tidewater, VA. This arcade and mini golf joint in town has become a regular vacation stop. Mars picked a good song for this round of Guitar Hero, Satch’s “Surfing with the Alien.” Is this also on our home version?
I got to see Joe Satriani on this tour. Note the ticket stub and dig the album art. Back to hard rocking Mars, I wish you could have seen the couple minutes right before I started recording. This is subdued in comparison.
Even though we have Guitar Hero at home the boy can’t get enough. I think I’ll post this on ImHeavyDuty.com as well.
Go, Mars, go! He’s in the t-shirt with black and white circles. Every year the middle school kids at Rainbow Mountain Children’s School put on a show. This year’s show has a USO theme, and for part of the show the kids needed to learn the Lindy Hop. Show time tomorrow night! I think they’re ready. The kids seen here are actually the entire middle school. Crazy man.
