Improvised Jam Session? Jump in Feet First!

At the end of Friday's media night the Trampoline band shared the stage with Sara Messenger and Mik Bondy (aka the Human Jukebox) from Behan Communications, the incomperable Ray Agnew from the Glens Falls Hospital Foundation, along with two of our favorite newsmen: Maury Thompson from the Post Star newspaper (on piano) and Gordon Woodworth from the Chronicle. Together, we helped raise $750 for Feet First, a service organization dedicated to providing disadvantaged kids with the shoes they deserve.

It was great to see so many familiar faces in the crowd:

Jan and Jeannie, thanks for your kid-wrangling prowess.

Jen and Blake, Trina lit up when she saw the two of you.

Paula and Ben thanks for cheering on ol' Dad.

Julia, enjoy the tambourine—your old man can show you how to shake it.

Briar and Avery: the youngest (and cutest) groupies ever.

Manda, thanks for getting the whole shebang on tape.

John Yost, thanks for the bottle(s) of courage.

Gary Poland, you raised a rock star.

Todd Shimkus, the busiest man around. Hope you enjoyed the show.

Nick Caimano, good luck on the campaign, congrats on the PAC endorsement.

Bob Dillon, you're too cool for coming—stop in before you head up to Ad Workshop.

And last but not least, Gary & Shirley Nelson...it seems like every time Trampoline hits a milestone—whether it's the very first conversation 'round a Vermont campfire, or an awards dinner, or a public performance like last night—you're always there cheering us on.
