Final Reunion of The Shrinking Heads
don't miss out! Friday, february 19th 8-11pm
The Shrinking Heads is a Rehabilitation Psychology conference band, originally formed as Reel Goode and the Fo’Phree in 2003, whose name was a nod to the Joni Mitchell song “Real Good for Free.” Their debut performance occurred at the Tucson, Arizona, Rehabilitation Conference, composed of band members Tim Elliott, Tom Kerkhoff, Jay Uomoto, and Tim’s expert drummer, Mike Dye. The performance saw our luminaries Bernie Brucker and Mitch Rosenthal take to the dance floor, with an historic backup singing cameo by one of the founders of rehabilitation psychology, Beatrice Wright. This launched a several year tradition of having the rehabilitation psychology band play at the conference, with current band members Dave Patterson, David Cox and Barry Nierenberg joining shortly after that first gig, and the name eventually became The Shrinking Heads. The band has been graced by the vocal talents of Les Butt and the singing stylings of Chrissie Graham, Kelly Wright and Ekello Harrid, touring saxophone artist Ivan Molton, guitar slingers John DeLuca and Tony McMahon, the harp virtuoso Dan Marson, conga rhythms by Efrain Gonzalez, and the keyboard expressions of Joan Romano and Dustin Wallace. The band has played at the annual RP Conferences in Seattle, Baltimore, Reno, Charlotte, Tucson, and Jacksonville. This year the RP Conference will see the final reunion performance of the rock-n-roll cover band, The Shrinking Heads that will see Tom (guitar, vocals), Jay (guitar, vocals), Dave (drums/percussion), David (keyboards), and Barry (saxophone/percussion) joined by local bass guitarist, Eric Chism, which will be an event to bring the rehabilitation psychology community together at the conference, Friday evening February 19th from 8-11PM. Bring your dancing shoes, toe tapping vibe, and party spirit to this social event!
