Professionals by day, rockers by night Bob Bua – aka RipChord of Prom King Productions – has been continually amazed to find out how many musicians are out there, only they keep it a private part of their lives that are more visibly consumed with the obligations of work and family. He keeps talking about it though, and the under- ground network keeps growing, both in the number of musicians and their loyal fan base. There's even a new website for the growing Wellesley underground music scene for viewing clips of local bands and booking gigs, www.WellesleyRocks.com. "If we're honest," Bua says, "at this age, much of life's free time can be spent watch- ing the next generation have fun. How often do the kids envy the fun their parents are having?" That was exactly the dynamic at play at the Memorial Day backyard barbeque a few summers back when Off Label played its first set to entertain friends and neighbors. When the grown-ups put the instruments down, the kids picked them up, and The Screaming Sushi kid rock band was born. When your parents are in a band and learn- ing the ropes of recording and getting gigs, there's a trickle-down effect. Screaming Sushi has built quite a following. They've performed at local Wellesley school functions, and the band's original Christmas song was broadcast on Fox News. The Christmas song broadcast can be viewed on the WellesleyRocks website. 143 f a l l 2 0 1 4 | W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e
