  I never thought that this late in life I would be, again, Band Dad. In the spirit of total honesty (always the best policy) it’s really more like Band “Uncle” since our “adopted” niece, Reese, plays keyboard in the Ware Shoals band. We just finished two grueling trips to and from Batesburg and...
