On Friday, February 23 the jam band EGGY visited Amity High School to discuss their music and their career path with current students. Over 100 Amity students in grades 9-12 heard the band play several of their original songs and talk about their personal journeys as musicians and songwriters. Three Amity High graduates play in EGGY – Jake Brownstein, (guitar/vocals), Michael Goodman, (bass/vocals), and Dani Battat (keyboards/vocals). Alex Bailey, (drums/vocals) hails from the Chicago area and is currently a student at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
EGGY’s visit to Amity was made possible by a grant from the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation.
