TEEN BAND TO PERFORM AT 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION By Maggi Moromisato

You might say playing music is second nature to the four Robinson Secondary School students who compose the band "Second Nature," one of the featured bands at the Burke Centre 20th anniversary celebration this weekend.

"They have been writing songs since they were little bitty boys," said Lisbeth Werner of Schoolhouse Woods Court in Burke, and mother of band members Dave, 17, and Andrew, 15. As a matter of fact, the brothers still remember Dave's first lyrics written at age 4, "Yellow Dress," which goes like this: "She invited me home for dinner. She said yes. She's wearing the yellow dress...."

While Dave composed as he went along, Andrew said he sang backup, "Yellow Dress, yellow dress."

When Dave and Andrew were in second and first grades, respectively, they began taking piano lessons because their parents wanted them to have a musical background. While big brother continued on the ivories, Andrew said he decided to take up another instrument. "Dave was really good on the piano; it made me look bad," he said, "so I decided to play the drums."

"Once you know the basics, it's fun. Soon we could put melodies to my lyrics," said Dave, who now plays the keyboards, guitar and harmonica, and does the lead vocals for the band.

Then along came Don Simpson, 16, of Wilson Woods Court in Fairfax, the band's lead guitarist, who has quite a different musical background. "When I was 4 years old, I got my first guitar at a yard sale for 75 cents," he said. "It only had three out of six strings and had a big crack down the middle."

Don and Dave met in seventh grade art class shortly after he began taking guitar lessons. "We started talking about having a band way back then," Don said.

Once Eugene Jung, 17, of Sideburn Court in Fairfax, added his talents as a bass guitarist two years ago, the band was complete. "I'm the newest member, but I'm also the coolest," he said, as the others laughed. "Yeah, we transformed him," said Don, punching him on the arm. "Eugene was nothing until he joined the band."

The bass guitarist actually started out on the piano, too, when he was in fifth grade, but he took up the cello when being recruited for the school orchestra. "At that time, I thought violins were only for girls, and the stand-up bass was too heavy," Eugene said, "so I picked the cello," which he plays to this day.

However, with the addition of MTV to his selected viewing, his mind began strumming in another direction. "I saw people playing guitars, and it was, like, really cool," he said.

Although they insisted they all "have lives," at least four weekday afternoons are spent in a part of the Werner's basement: A small area with two bare lightbulbs hanging from the ceiling; floor covered with cardboard, which is filled with lyrics and drawings (mostly by Dave); aluminum foil and posters on the wall; and instruments and equipment taking up the rest of the breathing space. "This is home," they said. "We just like to jam."

All of their music is original. "We don't play any cover songs, except "Sample In A Jar" by Phish and a remake of Buddy Holly's "Peggy Sue"," Andrew said.

They said they have been influenced by Dave Matthews, Phish, and Widespread Panic, but aren't out to sound like any other band. "We have an underground beat," Don said. "We like to focus on the instruments," Dave said. "Yeah, and concentrate on our own sound," added Don.

This summer, they plan to record a CD. "We recorded a tape last summer, "Grass Catcher"," Eugene said, "but we've grown way beyond it."

"Yes, copmpared to how we sound now...I just can't wait to get back in the studio," Andrew said.

Second Nature will be appearing at Ram Jam, May 16, at Robinson's Russell Theatre, and at Burke Centre's 20th Anniversary celebration, at the Burke Centre Conservancy at noon on Saturday, May 17.


A Short Fan Review of a Show
From: The Burke Connection, May 22-28.

The musical entertainment began shortly after noon. Approximately 25 students and fans came out to see Second Nature perform their all-original rock n' roll material. Classmates Kristen Cox, 15, and Jenny Lovell, 16, both of Burke, stood under a tree to avoid the rain, nodding their heads to "Fresh From The Farm". "I think they're awesome," said Kristen. "Yes, I definitely would pay money to see them in concert," added Jenny.

(Extra Note: this was our worst performance we've ever had. Not only did it rain through the entire set, Don's guitar fell in the middle of a song and it went totally out of tune. Never again has the song "Instant Oatmeal Road" been played in the key it was played in that day. But trust me, it's gotten quite better through out the years.)


Praise From Burke Centre
From: A thank you note sent to the band, signed on May 21, 1997.

Dear David, Andrew, Eugene, and Don:

On behalf of the Burke Centre community and the 20th Anniversary Committee, I'd like to thank you for the outstanding performance you provided on May 17, 1997. Spectators had nothing but rave reviews to offer about the group, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the band's performance.

I sincerely appreciate the wonderful performance provided by Second Nature, along with the efficient set-up and clean up time after the performance. The professionalism exhibited by the band during our celebration greatly contributed to the overall success of the event.


Carousel Article
From: Carousel Magazine For The Arts, 1998 Edition, entitled "Hello Fish, How Are You?: From Second Nature's new album 'Find Your Own Way Home.' Second Nature is one among the few bands at Robinson High to have recorded their second album."

Hello Fish. How are you? The angelic snowfall is just starting to cling to the grass in Damascus, Maryland. A lone recording studio sits atop a freshly blanketed hill, and strands of music begin to leak through the windows to the frozen world outside. Eugene Jung is inside, holding a black bass guitar and wearing a pair of bulky headphones. He is in the process of recording the bass track to a song he created named "F-sharp." The Robinson-based band Second Nature is in the middle of reaching an impressive feat by a high school group: they're making a CD.

Second Nature comes from the rich musical scene that has always been present at Robinson, from old bands such as Giant Cardboard Dinosaurs to newer ones like Princessed. Second Nature recorded their CD over the 97-98 winter break, and this being their second album, the band has evolved and learned from their previous effort, "Grasscatcher."

"They play very refreshing and original music," Rolling Hills' Recording Studio guru Greg Snider said. Greg and his brother, Don, recorded the new CD, "Find Your Own Way Home." The seven songs on the amazing new album range from the heavy-driven "Third" to the acoustic-rendered "Uncle Charlie's Song." The album finishes with a hilarious eighth track, consisting of a conversation between the band's brothers, David and Andrew Werner, and their former technical education teacher Mr. Pongpun Punhong.

Second Nature is made up of three seniors, Don Simpson, Eugene Jung, and David Werner, as well as junior Andrew Werner. No single member takes claim to the band's small-scale success; instead they say everyone plays an equally important role.

"We're not focused on making money," said David, the lead singer, "and truthfully, we wouldn't be on any level of success. We're just having a lot of fun playing our own music and enjoying what we have." David also plays some guitar and keyboard on the new album.

"I like jamming every week," don, the main guitarist, said. "We all get along well. Well, we do make fun of Eugene, but that's understandable."

Eugene was the last addition to the band, but in his own words, he's also the "coolest." Eugene remains the only band member to sleep in on recording sessions for both the first and second albums. In addition to the bass, Eugene also plays cello in one of the new songs.

Andrew rounds out the group with his drums, following in the jazz tradition of 1997 Drummer of the Year, Carter Beauford. His drumming is unmatched at Robinson, and the new album only re-enforces that. He is often found listening to professional albums in his basement and drumming along to their beats.

"I hate all the stupid mechanical drum stuff that people are listening to now," Andrew admitted. "There's no work there; it's just pressing buttons on a machine. Call me crazy, but I listen to 'Smooth Jazz 105.9' on the radio all the time. That's where the action is."

Maybe the wording of this interview isn't bringing out the craziness and excitement Second Nature really generates. Their many live performances, including Ram Jam 1997, continue to be more and more exciting.

"We have a video tape of our first live show at a birthday party," Eugene laughed. "We all just stood around looking at the ground. Now we're focusing on everyone having a good time and getting the tunes out to the kids as well as we can play them."

The band practices in the Werner brothers' basement, an unfinished masterpiece with poster-covered walls and a magic-marker colored cardboard floor. Add to that a ceiling with plastic dinosaurs, road signs, and a strobe light hanging from the steel cross-braces and the jamming headquarters is complete.

The influences on the band are wide in variety, including Phish, They Might Be Giants, and Dave Matthews Band. Take note that all the aforementioned bands have their own unique styles and are not simply following a set musical formula. That's what Second Nature is out to do: break musical rules.

"We didn't like the transitions in 'F-Sharp', so we just got rid of them," Don said. "There's some Korean in 'Third' and steel drums in 'Navigator'. Each song has its own sound and mood."

The CD is available through any of the band members or through their homepage (2n.homepage.com) on the internet for \$10. The price barely covers the expenses it took to go through the entire process of creating a quality CD. The reactions from listeners have been full of praises.

With college approaching for the three senior members, Second Nature's future is up in the air.

"We're going to stay together as friends at the very least," David summed up. "There are plenty of jams left, but we made the CD to top off our work in high school. It's been a lot of fun, and I know all of us want music to remain in our lives for a long time."

Whatever the future brings, Robinson has been lucky to have Second Nature walk through its doors, along with all the other great musicians in the school.

Back at the beginning scene, the snow continues to srop and Andrew is laying down a track of bongos for the last song on the album.

"I wanna make a snowman," he says. "Last year Don and I made a guy named Smiling Eugena with a snow body and cheese eyes. The birds ate the eyes. Eugene got mad and knocked it down. It's those precious moments I hold so dear to my heart. We have so much fun."

(Extra Note: Want to know a little story behind this interview? The guys knew the editor-in-chief for this annual magazine, Carousel, so they knew they had an easy interview. Unfortunately, the supposed interviewer was not on best terms with Andrew and there was a little tension there. So the above interview was actually written by Dave. All those quotes are made up. Pretty convincing, huh?)
