NAME: Patrick Weklar
BAND AFFILIATION: soundBarn, Location Ensemble
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Not entirely sure, but it’s a safe bet it was a Beatles album – or albums – since I used to buy them 2-3 at a time. The record store was on the way home from my job, so I usually arrived home on payday with empty pockets and an
armful of LPs.
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Ronnie James Dio at the Glens Falls Civic Center in ’84 or ’85.
3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … A 1960s-era Sears Silvertone guitar. It was one of the Danelectro-style amp-in-case models. I inherited that from my brother when I was probably six or seven years old and used to goof around with it until my parents gave it away to my cousin. I now have his old Sunn cabinet, so I guess we’re somewhat even.
