Spotlight on Peter Conklin - HVBA Vice President

Click to Enlarge

I finally had a chance to sit down with HVBA Vice President, consummate musician, bandmate and all around great guy, Pete Conklin, to chat about what music means to him. It’s not easy finding Pete without an instrument in his hand. But our talk was enlightening and I’d like to share that with HVBA members.
By Jeffrey Anzevino, HVBA Founder

JA: Pete, I’ve never conducted an interviewed before.

PC: And I’ve never been interviewed.

Good we’re in tune. Pete, I think of you as Mr. Music. Music seems to be—almost, your life.

Well thanks, Jeff.

What does music mean to you?

Well, obviously a lot since it seems as if I’m either playing music or listening to it all the time. Althought it’s funny, I hardly ever listen to the radio anymore. No pop stuff, that’s for sure.

What instruments do you play?

Time Change for Open Jams

All of our jam sessions feature the Slow Jam, which happens during the first 60 minutes. From 6:30 to 7:00, we invite you to play at a sane pace in a supportive, non-competitive environment. The regular jam lasts the full four hours.
