Finding a Niche

Joe Arellano

“...They didn’t believe me, and after awhile I realized well fine if they don’t want me in the band, if they don’t think I could be a good match then I don’t want to be in that band. And then the next week they wanted to try me out, and that was kind of cool cause that broke the ice and I didn’t have to worry about it... Then I tried out and they were shocked... From there I have been playing with [Zest of Yore],” Alan Laurer said.

In addition to playing the drums, Laurer plays the bass and is in a Ska Band.
