Let's be real for a minute - the past year has been hard for everyone. Masking up, social distancing, working from home, and missing our friends and family is brutal. Since so much of our culture at SMBH is about being together, it's been difficult to connect with one another without our normal events. Though we've all found little ways to reach out and be there for one another despite the digital distance, it's just not the same. But while we're missing our bake-offs, cook-offs, cookouts, pi days, and lots of other things, one thing we could take virtual was our (little-known) in-office jam session.
From time to time, a small group of our team members have casual jam sessions during lunch in one of our conference rooms. Mike, Jerry, and Kevin usually play guitar, while Ebiji plays the keyboard, Ryan plays something as a drum, and the rest of us sing along. One of the most played artists at our jam sessions is The Beatles, and we felt their song "With A Little Help From My Friends" would be a fitting cover for our COVID Zoom Virtual Jam Session. So, here's our team - each of us making our individual contributions to help us all get through the pandemic together.
