Inspired by a friend, John started taking harmonica lessons at the age of 30 at the Old Town school of folk music. John then moved on to bass lessons which soon switched over to guitar lessons. After 8 years of playing and taking lessons he was emboldened by his mastery of three chords and started writing songs that entertained his daughter. He showed them to some friends named Pete and Shawn who helped him further develop the music. Then a band was formed by reaching out to some Old Town disciples and an instructor, a young talented pastor and a drummer who was in the right place at the right time. After a few rehearsals, a flooded out block party gig, a few more rehearsals and a successful outdoor halloween gig they headed into the studio. A year later and a few gigs behind them they have completed the CD and it is available at cdbaby.com/poochamungas. It has also won a 2010 National Parenting Publication Award! Tickets are $8, free for kids 2 and under, and are available at www.schubas.com
