Since the breakup of Gallus left a hole in my life last year, I’ve been hoping to hook up with a new band. Finally took the bull by the horns and got a new group going. We’re calling ourselves Five Second Rule. Rehearsals are going well, and it looks like we’ll have quite an eclectic mix of Irish, bluegrass, quasi-jazz and other genres.
Our first performance was with the Lone Star Wind Orchestra, performing Dan Welcher’s Minstrels of the Kells, a cool (classical) piece for wind ensemble that calls for an Irish pub band toward the end. Be sure to visit the Five Second Rule MySpace page, and listen to the excerpt from that concert.
