Alumni Spotlight: News from Our Network

Want to promote yourself, a performance, business venture, vacation plans, and/or opportunities to connect with other ‘Tones? Post to our Obertones Alumni Facebook page, and we’ll pick it up.
Tim Smith '92 is making people smile and jump up and down in and around Durham, North Carolina. Check him out at Dindi, Tim Smith Band, and Archbishops of Blount Street.
Matt Hubbard '94 is a professional musician based in Austin, Texas, but he travels and gigs constantly (we really can’t keep up), playing with the likes of 7 Walkers and a long list of legendary names in the music biz.  This photo is some indication of the jamming that is Matt’s day job.
