Jon Bon Jovi Writes Letter Excusing Band From School

A band called ‘The Contagious’ had a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform as the opening act for Bon Jovi in Dallas, Texas last week.  There was one small problem though, the members of the band are sophomores in high school and were scheduled to have classes that day!

So Jon wrote a note to the school excusing each member of the band from class!

It said, quote, “To whom it may concern, please excuse the members of The Contagious for being absent from school . . . “They were busy being my opening act and kicking butt!”  Best. Excuse. Ever.

The Contagious aren’t just any ol’ high school band, the guys met when they were in the 3rd grade, and formed a band in 2011.  They now have shows booked all around the Houston area. To learn more about the guys of ‘The Contagious’, check them out here!
