Popular local band – Bored of Education – wants to teach audiences about having a good time! Bored of Education has been performing at local events for several years now and continues to build a fan base as it reaches out to larger events and venues. The band has gone through several different lineups since it first formed a few years ago. The current lineup of Rich Fletcher on lead guitar and vocals, Jack Watson on lead vocals, piano and guitar, Tom Thwaits on piano, harmonica, accordion, bongos and vocals, Ron Pretli on bass guitar and vocals and Michael Dykstra on drums, has been playing together for about a year and a half. The band plays at various gigs throughout the local area in Meaford, The Blue Mountains, Collingwood and Owen Sound. Four of the five members of the band are teachers at Georgian Bay Secondary School in Meaford. Michael is a student at the school. The band first formed a few years ago when Jack and Rich started playing some charity events together. Together, they slowly built the band up and saw more teachers join in. Family obligations, new babies and other commitments led to changes in the band’s lineup over time.
