When faced with the departure of a valued band member and friend, it is natural to feel a mix of emotions ranging from sadness to nostalgia. Devon, our drummer, has been an invaluable part of OnPoint for over three years. His professionalism, talent, and warm personality have undeniably left an indelible mark on both our music and our hearts. While his departure may bring sadness, the memories we’ve shared and the experiences we’ve gained together make us optimistic for what lies ahead for both Devon in Germany and OnPoint here in Hong Kong.
One cannot talk about Devon without acknowledging his mastery over programming our electric drums. Devon’s passion for music radiated through his work, and he spent countless hours meticulously fine-tuning the drum sounds for our songs. His commitment to OnPoint and unwavering attention to detail made him an invaluable asset to our band and played a pivotal role in shaping our signature sound.
And not to get braggy, but Devon’s professionalism was unparalleled. From the first day, he joined our band, it was evident that he was not only a talented musician but also someone who took his role seriously. He consistently showed up on time, prepared and focused, ready to give his all during rehearsals and performances. Devon’s dedication set a high standard for the rest of us, driving us to be better musicians and inspiring us to strive for greatness. His levelheadedness during stressful situations and ability to remain calm and collected ensured that our performances were always of the highest quality.
Beyond his musical prowess and professionalism, Devon’s presence in our band transcended the confines of a typical band dynamic. He was a true friend and confidant, always offering support and encouragement to each member of the band. Devon’s kind-hearted nature created a sense of unity and camaraderie among us, fostering a creative and collaborative environment where everyone felt valued and appreciated. His generosity knew no bounds, as he often went out of his way to listen and just be an ear when we each needed it.
As Devon embarks on a new chapter in his life out in Germany, we bid him a heartfelt goodbye.
We recognize and appreciate the immeasurable impact he has had on our band’s growth and success and the void his departure will undoubtedly leave. However, as we reminisce on the memories we’ve created together, we are filled with a sense of gratitude for the time we’ve shared. Devon’s departure marks the beginning of a new era for our band, an opportunity for growth and exploration. While we will undoubtedly miss his presence, we are optimistic about what lies ahead, confident in the resilience and talent of our remaining members.
Your departure is going to be hard and it is really going to hurt. We are going to miss you so much, but know you will always hold a huge place in our hearts. We can never thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us professionally and as a friend. There’s no one like you buddy. We love you, brother. Let’s not say goodbye, but see you soon…
