Band of the Boys

There are days I am convinced Scott Wells is the most common name in the world.

Like Hubby, a journalist, I Google myself occasionally — sometimes complex searches with misspellings — to see if someone has written in a blog or other site something about me or even to me. (Hubby gets picked up by the AP; he looks for how he’s edited or even translated.) Seriously, if you want my opinion, and email works faster than an aside. At least I (“Scott Wells”) hit on the first Google page, as I didn’t used to.

Well, to keep a long story from getting longer I searched for me and “Boys in the Band” — the 1970 film based on the stage play, from which I punningly took this blog name. Egads if I didn’t find The Scott Wells Band, a “roots rock, rockabilly, classic country & blues” in the Virginia exurbs of Washington, D.C.

I love rockabilly. Perhaps it’ll be worth renting a car and gulp driving to Culpepper.

  1. I manage the bands at the Pub in Culpeper and hire the Scott Wells Band. Great music and a great bunch of guys…get that hubby and stay at one of Culpeper or surrounding bed and breakfasts…its fun out here in the country…we don’t bite and not all of us thump bibles.
