Five Firsts: Mark Emanatian of Folding Sky

Mark EmanationNAME: Mark Emanatian

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … “The Worst of Jefferson Airplane”

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … The 5th Dimension at SPAC. I was 11 ears old. My uncle, who just came home from Vietnam, took me and my sister. It was a thrill.

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … A Saint George Strat copy that I bought from George’s Music in Troy for $10.00 that I saved up from paper route money.

4. THE FIRST SONG THAT I EVER PERFORMED IN PUBLIC WAS … “You Are My Sunshine” at the Little Sisters of the Poor Nursing Home in Troy. We performed for the elderly folks there. It was 1971. I was 14, and we got paid in cookies and milk.

5. THE FIRST BAND I WAS EVER IN WAS … The Third Avenue Blues Band
