The Birthday Boys: Keith & Bill
Sat., Jul. 8. 2006 1:07pm EDT
Our bass player, Keith Haynie, and our keyboardist, Bill Hubauer, have birthdays two days apart (July 16 and 18, respectively), so we'll celebrate them at Sonshine festival, July 15, in Willmar MN.
Sharing the birthday limelight with people born two days before him is nothing new for Bill Hubauer. His mother and older brother and his mother-in-law were all born on July 16, the same day as Keith.
"Growing up," Bill laments, "my mom, my brother and I celebrated all three of our birthdays on the 16th, I never had my own birthday. It was jive. You can quote me on that."
Three current members of ApologetiX were born in July. ApologetiX lead singer J. Jackson was born on July 2. The band and audience surprised J. with cake, party hats and noisemakers at our July 2 concert in Steubenville OH.
For the record, ApologetiX guitarist Karl Messner was born on March 21 (celebrated at our concert in Kingsville OH on March 19), and drummer Jimmy Tanner was born on April 2 (celebrated on that day in Trenton MI).
