Miami’s own rock band Skum was out in force last week at Lincoln Road’s Lucky Strike bowling alley in a strong show of support for the Miami Dolphins and the Miami Dolphin Foundation, a charity devoted to providing and supporting signature Education, Health, Youth Athletic Programs and Volunteer Activities that inspire and engage communities throughout Florida.
Skum’s John Eaton, Pat Burke, Hart Baur, Todd Mittlebrook and Tommy Gunn were on hand to sign autographs and get in a few frames. Dolphin players Brandon Marshall and Brandon Fields were also in attendance and the night quickly took off. Marshall was gracious to the many fans in attendance but was unsure of who was who within the band. “I’m a lot younger than these guys, they were way before me.”
Lead guitarist John Eaton challenged Fields to see who could get the first strike in which Field knocked out a strike on his first toss. ‘Not bad for a punter,’ joked Eaton.
The high game of the night came from Pat Burke who scored a 186, with the low game belonging to Tommy Gunn who managed to scrap together a 74. “Lets be honest, Gunn sucks at bowling,” added Burke. Gunn blamed his low score of the fact that he was denied re-entry into the VIP lanes after going to the bathroom and thus missed 3 fames. “They wouldn’t let me in, they didn’t know I was with the band.”
‘It was great to be out and supporting the foundation,” said lead singer Hart Baur. “Charity starts at home and we are from Miami.”
