Rock group to play in Tucson tomorrow night
When New Jersey native Dan Lavery graduated from the Rutgers University School of Engineering in 1990, he was not sure where his degree would take him.
He certainly did not plan on playing bass with the alternative-rock band Tonic.
In college, Lavery played cover tunes with his band True. It was with them that he realized that his dreams of performing could actually take flight.
"My major was electrical engineering, and if you ask anyone in that program they'll tell you there isn't a lot of time to do anything," he said. "I spent a lot of time studying - I spent a lot of time fucking off too - but I always had a group with my friends."
