MiCompBands Staff:
iamso1970s/softandslow; Samantha or Samm; Ferndale High School '06, Central Michigan University c/o 20-who knows. Majoring in Music Education with minors in psychology and leadership (wtf?). Founded MiCompBands, and sometimes had time to maintain the community. She's loud at competitions, and tries really hard to get a MiCompBands party to actually happen.
_koinonia; Jessi; Jenison High School '06, University of Chicago '10 where she continues to be really smart and majors in some crazy things like rocket science, anatomy of the world, and general good and welfare. She has helped Samm maintain MiCompBands just about since it started, and made really cool stickers for the website that still isn't finished.
lhstrumpet Sean; (Stevensville) Lakeshore '04; Lake Michigan College '06 - Associate of Applied Science: Music; Eastern '09 - Language, Literature, and Writing for the Secondary Teacher, Comprehensive Minor in Communications and Theatre Arts - Secondary Certification (wtf x56431655). He used to help out a lot, but usually now just pretends he's important. Sean goes to way too many home games and competitions where Lakeshore is present. Also, if you pluralize state around him or refer to Lakeshore as just Stevensville, he may infact develop a brain aneurysm on the spot.
_silent_poetry; Andrea; Reeths-Puffer High School '08; She is really good at making good layouts, and will most likely be our new Jessi.
xfabul0us_o0x; Brandi; Lakeland High School '07; as Samm did, she tried to be really organized but odds are (like Samm) it will fail. She does a good job of trying, though!
chsnare Chris; Carlson High School '07; created and sometimes runs message board.
germanstud John; Plymouth-Cantom High School '07, Eastern Michigan '11; Helps Samm remember things that she usually forget. He also runs the website (www.freewebs.com/michmusic). Check it out!
oneandonlymaxlo Max; West Bloomfield High School '09; Bio to come soon!
