So much has been happening here at Mom's, both in the store and with our Education Department!
Benji Simmonds, our Backline Manager and Coordinator was seriously injured in a fall a few weeks ago. Luckily some of the folks here at Mom's used some quick thinking and some apparel as life saving devices and Benji made it to the hospital for several hours of surgery, and he's been at home resting and recouping, although I think he's been sneaking in some work here and there! Bad Benji!
If you'd like to send a card, flowers, anything edible, or maybe a singing telegram get in touch with the store and we'll swap some information. Benji has been in all of our thoughts pretty much non-stop since his accident, and we long for his big come-back to the store!
As well, one of our guitar instructors, Chris Matthews was in a motorcycle accident a week ago. Chris has not been able to return to work due to repeat stints in the hospital to care for his injuries. One of our guitar instructors, Karyln Baker, has been hand picked by Chris to take care of all of his students until he returns. Karyln is a great guy and an AMAZING shredder, we're sure all of Chris's student (and parents) will be pleased with the caliber of his instruction.
We'll keep everyone updated on when Chris will be coming back to us. We hope to see him soon.
