I went to my Senior All Night Party with my date Alisa Head, and friends Kevin Ivey and Patrice Hamilton. Walking in I was thinking this band sounds really good! I walked up front to see what kind of equipment they were using. While I was up there, I was getting some strange looks from the band members. We then went to the center of the floor and started dancing! The band sounded great, the music was very tight, and the vocals sounded right on the money. The band finished a song, and the guitar player motioned for me to come up to the front. We went up front, and they ask me if I was the drummer for Steamer? I said yes, and they told me they had seen Steamer play several times and they really liked us. I ask them what songs they were going to play throughout the night. They told me some of the songs, and then they told me they were saving their best for last. They wouldn’t tell me the name of the last song, and told us to stick around till the end, that we wouldn’t be disappointed.
We decided to stay all night because the four of us wanted to hear their best song. I was having a great time dancing with a beautiful girl, and we were both really digging the music. We started getting pretty tired, and you could tell the band was getting tired. The keyboard player could hardly keep his eyes open. But we were going to stay and hear this hot last song! About 5:45 AM the band announced, this is going to be our last song! All of us were standing there waiting for this smokin’ song to start. Then the guitar player started the song off with some power cords. I looked at Alisa and I said, they got to be kidding us, this is their best song? Now I like Deep Purple, but I have always felt “Smoke on the Water” is an awful song. I looked at Kevin and said we are out of here. I waved at the band, and the four of us left. As we were walking to the car, Kevin, Patrice and Alisa were laughing at me, because all three of them like that song! Don’t know why, but I still really dislike that song???
