Rock Moment with Dave Schools of Hard Working Americans

During our summer-long Wingate Hughes Rocks campaign, we are sharing the moment that musicians, creatives and clients have when they know what they are playing, making, or doing rocks. It’s the same moment we have as architects when we know our designs are the one.

Hard Working Americans is comprised of several already successful musicians: singer Todd Snider, bassist Dave Schools from Widespread Panic, Neal Casal of Chris Robinson Brotherhood on guitar and vocals, Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi on keyboards and Duane Trucks, younger brother to Derek Trucks (Derek Trucks Band, guest musician for The Allman Brothers Band, and the Tedeschi Trucks Band), on drums.

Hard Working Americans’ Rest in Chaos tour stopped at The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA on May 20, and we met with the band backstage. Schools is a founding member of Widespread Panic, and he shared great advice on following career passions. “Do What you love,” said Schools. “If you do something for love, you’re going to master it. Everything will fall into place.”
