Chops. Pete Tuerck of the band Fried Moose drums on the Commons. Many students spent their afternoons on the Hill listening to music. Simpson i Simpson FT ocal Sounds « Tun ing into student bands Although it was not exactly the Mowtown of the recording industry, Harrisonburg did turn out quite a few good local bands. Whether is was at J.M. ' s or during lunchtime on the Commons, these bands made life at JMU a little more interest- ing. Many bands believed in their poten- tial yet remained wary of pursuing music as a career. Dave Sickmen, a guitar player in Pie Boy, aimed to go as far as the group could go but admitted that " career was a scary word. " Drummer Jason Alley and guitarists, D.J. Wil- liams and Ward Harrison made up the rest of the band which defined its music as " acid pop. " Pie Boy relied equally on each member for vocals and emphasized that their music catalog was comprised of " mostly originals. " Trying not to oversaturate the Harrisonburg scene. Pie Boy scheduleti dates outside JMU, most notably Blacksburg. Fried Moose created music as provacative and catchy as its name implied. Junior Rob Bullington described their songs as a distinctive sound heavily influenced by such diverse musicians as Paul Simon, Pink Floyd, and Eric Clapton, and defined their current status in the music industry as " jam- ming with potential. " The unique sound of Fried Moose was attributed to their large en- semble of musicians, which included a drum- mer, two guitarists, and a saxophonist. Aside from Harrisonburg, Fried Moose also gained valuable experience from its gigs in Charlottesville. Other ever-popular bands included Everything, BS M, and Full Stop. They too were regular performers at lunchtime on the Commons or on Thursday nights at J.M. ' s. -Brian Tetro Bands 47

Dusk. The sunsets are incredij around the Valley. Students often trl elled all the way to Reddish Knob in on ' » ' to witness the sunset. " Nothing can compare to the Shenandoah Val- ley In the Fall. -Senior Missy Casey WondersI Getaways of the Shenandoah Valley Clifi ti - QER. These students enjoy the view from a scenic overlook on Skyline Drive. Groups often gathered up for a trip away frt the stress of classes. 48 Getaways Weekends were the inajor focus of most JMU students. But what did they do when the pailying got old and the beer sludge began to grow mold? Harrisonburg and the surrounding area had great opportunities for weekend excursions. Those looking to get away for just a couple hours enjoyed the scenery of Skyline Drive, the awe-inspiring view of Reddish Knob, the quizzical structures of Natural Chimneys, the serenity of Rawley Springs, the magnifi- cent caverns of the area or just cruising the picturesque back roads. When the weather got colder and the snow began to accumulate, Massanutten was a great place to ski. It was also quite inexpensive for students since they offered special deals. If a weekend getaway was what stu- dents wanted, there were many great places in the area to go camping. Hone Quarry in the George Washington Forest was a popular place for a camping rendezvous. The Forest was also an opportune place for hiking up mountains, bike riding or just a lazy afternoon of outdoor fun. When JMU students were asked why they enjoyed getaways, most said that they were great for relieving stress and catching up with friends. Junior Heidi Tangee said sfj enjoyed going to Rawley Springs because removed me from the hustle and bustle campus life; yet it was close enough to be al to enjoy frequently. " Skyline Drive, which is east of JMU c Route 33, was wonderful for sightseein When the foliage changed the ShenandOcI Valley was a beautiful sight. Reddish Knoi| south of campus down Route 42, was a gre. spot to watch the setting sun. Natural Chin| neys are in the Bridgewater area, they weij rock formations that have eroded and lookel like huge fireplaces and chimneys in the roc Rawley Springs was great for waterfun. Crosi ing the creek on stepping stones, wading ar just relaxing to the babble of the brook ei hanced this area ' s pleasantness. The area many caverns included Shenandoah Ca ' ems. Endless Caverns and the popular Lure Caverns. These could all be visited for a sm£) fee, yet the magnificent structures were we worth it. Harrisonburg, even though it is seti a much less urban setting than most of l were used to, definitely had its share of coi things to do. Students simply had to b creative and get back to nature. -Jennifer Willia,
