I am in a band with Mr. Bowen, Mr. McClelland, and Mr. White (all teachers at VMHS). Our band name is "Sorry for the Inconvenience". We play a lot of different music. We cover most of our songs, and have a few originals. Some bands we cover are Coldplay, Weezer, Radiohead, Beastie Boys, Run DMC, U2, and many others.
