I have been playing guitar with a group of dads in a garage band for a little over a year now. What started out as a breakout session in the bedroom of my friends’ sons’ bedroom has grown into a full-fledged 5-person band. Although we try to meet weekly, a plethora of other dad-related duties compete for our time, making our practices inconsistent at best, but we try. Our adoring fans include passers-by and neighbors, either too young to know good from bad, or just too curious to turn away from the train wreck/spectacle that is transpiring in the garage.
We call ourselves “The Rubber Band“.
Part pun. Park joke. The Rubber Band expands to accommodate – whether that be each others’ schedules, talents, or even new members wanting to “give it a try”. The truth is? We’re not all that good, but we sure have a great time not being that good.
Thank you Shawn Burgwald ( Drums ), Kenn Matthews ( Vocals ), Mike Jock ( Bass ), Todd Vandervort ( Guitar ) and to that 20-something couple walking their dog three months ago that decided to pick up the open mic and join us for a song.
Keep on rockin’ in the free world.
Take care. Stay healthy. Live life.
P.S. And Dr. Stewart, if you ever read this, I’d like to challenge you to a battle of the bands 😉
P.P.S. Here are some alternative logos and artwork I came up with before settling on the one pictured above.

This is a great logo! The design perfectly captures the spirit of the band and its name. It’s always great to see dads doing what they love and having fun while doing it. Keep on rockin’!
Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much! We’re having a lot of fun 🙂
Love the Logo! Can’t seem to find a link to a video or sound file. You need to fix that! 😉
Lol! Be careful what you ask for. Our “sound guy” is my wife with a iPhone.
