      It's been two days since @gmugreenmachine and the @VCUathleticBand played in the @PPGPaintsArena. My ears are still ringing and I love it.

    If anyone was at Jiffy Lube Live Saturday night for the Lady Antebellum/Kelsea Ballerini/Brett Young show, they got a surprise during Lady A's "You Look Good" performance. The Green Machine came out and did the background sound.

    I was there and they were awesome. I do cringe every time I see their terrible tank-top uniforms. For the best band in the land, cant we get them some sweet looking Adidas shirts?

    I was there early enough to see the side stage stuff and saw a few Green Machine members (as they had the jerseys on) and thought, this is interesting, not thinking anything else.

    Channel 7 did a small blurb about it this morning.

    Green won't show up on camera as well as yellow.

    And why can't we embrace a little amateurism and kitsch?

    Sitting in the dentist office around 2pm today, they had 98.7 WMZQ overhead. The lead-in to Lady A's "You Look Good", the woman said something like, "this song was great at Jiffy Lube Live last month with George Mason's band joining in"

    FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (ABC7) — If you’ve ever driven through Fairfax, Virginia, during rush hour you’ve probably seen the startling image of a man walking around playing a tuba. You may have wondered what is up with that guy? Well here is the full story of Jay Converse, also known as "Tuba Man."


    We all have a talent. The key is tapping into that gift.

    “Hello! I’m Jay Converse and welcome to my basement."

    We caught up with Converse late one afternoon in September while he finished up working for the day from his home in Fairfax.

    Converse works in the accounting field for clients around the world. While he’s skilled at crunching numbers, his gift may reside in the artistic side of his personality as he points to his musical partner resting on a nearby work bench.
