Carmel Valley Middle School’s ‘Bob & the Cats’

Picture 20 of 20

By Susan Farese

What an honor! For the second time this academic year, I was invited by the Carmel Valley Middle School Principal Laurie Brady Francis and Vice-Principal Adam Camacho to photograph and report on the “one and only” CVMS Faculty-Student Rock Band “Bob & the Cats” spring encore outdoor lunchtime concert on Tuesday, June 5.

Eric Cahill of The Gig Entertainment, provided audio and sound (courtesy of CVMS ASB). Social Studies teacher and “wordsmith” Gino Scalo was an amazing Master of Ceremonies.

The cheering 1,400-plus enthralled students enjoyed a beautiful sunny San Diego lunchtime respite complete with perfect blue skies…while free-flowing rock music entertained them. Mr. Scalo cleverly used rhymes and puns to introduce songs and performers. Song after song encouraged me, a bonafide Baby Boomer, to reminisce. Not to mention that happy, youthful middle school audience blurting out  “woo-woo,” snapping some photos and taking in the memorable event.   Yes, I must admit, “Bob & the Cats” invited even my inner voice to sing along with the rockers, and I make no apologies!

Just who are “Bob & the Cats”? Here’s the lowdown: CVMS Vice Principal Adam Camacho played drums, Scott Dreschsel (CVMS band/orchestra) shined on sax. Vocals were belted out by teachers Holly Clark and Kathryn Stevens (English), Andy Corman (Science), and Brett Williams (Social Studies). The talented student performers included Hannah Green (8th grade) on vocals, Javan Tahir (8th grade) and Andy Brems (7th grade) on rhythm/lead guitars and Eshaan Pathak (8th grade) on bass.
