Remember when the Sunday paper would print that week’s top Billboard songs and albums? This may still go on; my encounters with physical newspapers are now confined to hotel stays, and even then, I’m not invested in reading them. I flip through because it feels anachronistic.
Andy Keir of the Katonah band - The Disappointments - has always had an interest in the bass guitar. That doesn't mean in the pursuit of that interest he ever owned one or any other musical instrument. So about six years ago, he traded in the air guitar strings on his tennis racquet for an actual bass. Its calling, though, still did not arrive until several of his Mahopac High School buddies found themselves faced with the disappointment of midlife and started a band. "They had two guitars, a singer and they needed a bass," Keir said. So his friends told him he had to learn to play the thing, and today 40 (or 45), never sounded so good.
It’s not often a band has staying power for over 40 years. It’s even rarer for them to maintain roots in the area they started. Cheap Trick is one of those unusual groups that remains faithful to its history.
The Earnest Spears is a new wave, punk Indie band, made up of four young and very talented members;
Disclaimer: This list is for entertainment purposes and with it I do not intend to bash on any members' beauty or talent. This list is just my opinion and an opinion is not a fact. Beauty is seen differently according to the country or culture and it is subjective. We each have a different opinion on what we consider beautiful. Hyorin's beauty especially stands out for me; she fit Sistar's concept very well.
All those people on the internet talk about it. Every day. Regardless of if you were a fan of One Direction or not, you can find posts about them everywhere. The Jonas Brothers reunion only made the talk about it so much worse.
Disclaimer: This list is for entertainment purposes only. With this list I do not intend to bash any member. This list is just my opinion and opinions are not facts. Beauty is something that we all see differently and it depends on the culture and country. In this list I tried to to include all their music videos since debut to their latest comeback. Also keep in mind that, although there is a visual in each group, depending on the concept, make up, and outfits, a member can stand out more than the rest of the members.
I don’t think I’m alone when I say this: when we listen to music, we often make connections to people. A certain song, no matter how subtle the message might be in reality, can make you think of a person; maybe even one you’ve never met. This is part of what makes music so personal. For every single person in the world, one song can take on so many different meanings. Then suddenly, the music that you’ve connected to these people make them feel closer than ever. You don’t have to imagine them; you can feel their presence. That’s the magic, I think.
In 2017, several months after they first became a band, In Real Life played their first full show at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, California. They played a set comprised of their first two singles, a couple of Christmas songs, and a few covers. Two years later, on October 5, 2019, they played The Roxy again. This time though, it was to a sold-out crowd on their second headlining North American tour. This set was comprised of songs off their debut album, She Do, a solo song written by each of the members, and just one cover. They brought it back to where it all started, but a lot has changed for the group since that first Roxy show.

Columbus City Schools should be proud of the students who participated in the Marching Band Invitational, Saturday, Oct. 5, at Africentric Early College. It was an encouraging showcase of young performers and music directors of various backgrounds and situations.
