Introducing Abstract Band

Abstract an art form totally unconventional
spontaneous thought expressions of individuals
With this distinct definition in mind
let me introduce them to you at this time
Four consummate maestros with a plan
meet the members of the Abstract Band
Mr. Walter Robinson blows the sax
so smooth he makes you stop in your tracks
Mr. Larue Larry provides the beat
he makes you clap your hands and pat your feet
Mr. Tyrone Douglas plays the bass
he makes you shake your body all over the place
Mr. Tommy Thompson strums the guitar strings
he makes you want to dance, shout and sing
So snap your fingers and shake your hips
and prepare yourself for a musical trip
You'll hear some Jazz, Rhythm & Blues and Hip-Hop
funky mellow soul and a sample of rock
Relax your mind on this sea of sound
the Abstract Band is about to throw down
