Local band celebrates release of first single

Joel’s father, David Bogaert, who has a background in sales, became the group’s agent, setting up the group’s shows and coordinating practices.

David was surprised when his son first mentioned wanting to play the drums.

David took him to RSR Studio for an evaluation. After 10 minutes on the kit, McEniry, who was thoroughly impressed with what he heard, pulled David aside and asked how long his son had been playing.

Drum lessons started immediately.

“I have no idea where he got the talent,” said David. “It’s been fantastic and rewarding watching them grow.”

When it was time for the band to learn some original tunes, local songwriter Doug Roberts was brought it to aid the band. He had written a few Christian-based songs that he taught to the group and was “pleasantly surprised” with how quick they picked up the structures and progressions.

Roberts only had vocals, rhythm guitar and bass written for the band’s first single and encouraged Bogaert to get creative in adding drum parts.
