Beber Supergroup Owen the Hawks Come Hunting In
One of Beber Camp 2014's premiere rock and roll ensembles was Owen the Hawks Come Hunting In, made up of long-time Beberites Hunter Borowick, Owen Frankel, and Emily Bear, and first-timer David Hawkins. They were supported by amazing CIT's Bennett Shapiro and Alan Brint.
Hunter and Emily both play shows throughout the year, and have for many years, but in very different styles of music from each other. While David had only been playing drums for 3 months when this band came together!
They all gelled together and managed to learn, record, and perform several songs, in just five short hours. We asked Hunter Borowick how the practicing and preparation methods at Beber differ from his year-round band back in Louisville.
Hunter said - "Focus is a key element in preparing for a performance. In a scenario such as the one at camp, where we don't really have much time, we have to stay focused on the objective. Honestly, in my band at home, we goof off a lot, but we have loads of time (practices can last up to about three hours) because we practice once to twice a week for between two an three hours. But when we make our song list for the week at camp, we learn them and play them together at the next practice, allowing us to get a lot done at a time.
