I've been in a few bands of varying types over the years, though the only one that ever recorded in a studio was The Opposition. A semi-political punk band I was in for 4 years in the early 2000's. The band was started by my friend Nick Bane and myself. The band's "gimmick", if you want to call it that, was that every dollar we made off our live shows was donated to charity. In our 4 years we donated thousands to a wide range of charities working to help the homeless, drug addicts, cancer patients, and our cd even benefited the local pirate radio station. The band ended up dissolving after various aspects of our lives changed, but it's a time I remember fondly and left me with a lot of interesting experiences.
