My friend Brendan plays in a band in Connecticut. I promise we'll come see you play before our kids graduate.
My childhood friend Ben also plays in a local band.

My college mate Jon has his own band, his own recording label, and just put out his first album.
My family friend Susan just won a Parents' Choice Award for her amazing children's music.
