Last night, after a long (but informative) day discussing everything from ABNs to oxygen modalities, attendees at National Respiratory Network's respiratory conference decided to let their hair down, for better or worse.
Enter Rock Band in which several teams made up of some of the best and brightest in the respiratory industry decided to play Rock Band. Wigs, feather boas, air guitars and a lot of guts took to the stage in a battle of the bands. Judges included Jeff "Paula Abdul" Baird and Andrea Stark.
The Tommyknockers video The competition kicked off with KR and the Sunshine Band led by Kelly Riley. One can only hope the feedback she gets from this year's conference attendees is as strong as she got from her mike last night. Just kidding Kel! She got the crowd on their feet.
Who knew WestMed Rehab's Tim Pederson could sing? And congrats Tim. I think I overheard that you just got engaged.
Also appearing last night: SeQual's very own Ron Richard. For those of you who don't already know, Ron is an actual musician. I don't think that helped him last night, but for those of you in SoCal, Ron is going on tour in real life in that area very soon.
Rumor has it last night's performances could wind up on YouTube. Keep your eyes peeled.
I'd also like to give a shout out to my tablemate Penny Girard, from Allstar Oxygen Services in California. She was one of several providers to be honored at last night's award ceremony as an outstanding respiratory provider.
