Nunchuks. A martial arts weapon. Causing pain. Used with skill for protection. Or, a band. That’s right, three of my colleagues here have joined forces and started a band. Think more eclectic than you could ever imagine, with instruments like the b-flat pocket trumpet, the banjo, guitars, and of course the ever-popular egg for percussion. The repertoire ranges from Johnny Cash to Christmas carols to Young MC to Joan Jett and beyond. They have a certain talent and a definite flair, and what they lack in expertise they more than make up for in enthusiasm and a major sense of humor. Oh, and they’re fabulous guys in general. If you ever have the opportunity, you should definitely check out the Nunchuks, and try to catch a performance if you can – an experience not to be forgotten.
