    Default Gigging This Weekend ?

    Who among us is playing a gig this weekend ?

    ROCK CANDY is back at our favorite club Saturday night and we are looking forward to a big night.

    They have a new policy at this club:
    The Happy Hour act plays a few short acoustic sets from 5:30 until 8:30;
    The Main-Stage act plays one long set from 9PM until 11PM, then;
    The DJ works from 11PM until the 2AM closing time.

    We have worked up a cool set of 28 tunes and love the fact that we can load up (while the DJ is working) and go home after 11pm.
    Photo below is a shot of us at this same club from the upstairs balcony....................

    Gigging tonight at Ventana Canyon Resort in the Cascade Lounge . This is a regular gig for us , in the lounge that is . Twice sometimes three times a month . We've been playing in the ballrooms or out on the patio for private gigs most of last month and this month . The place has almost become my second home ..LOL ! Thursday night we played a small place called Noble Hops and Friday another small place called Fini's Landing . We'll be off next week .
    I don't know why this picture keeps coming out sideways ....very frustrating !

    Unfortunately, our next gig isn't until mid-March.

    On the +side, it gives us time to work up new material. We're planning a 4hr all-acoustic gig in April, so our next several practices will be acoustic and learning more "acoustic friendly" songs.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    WOW................last night could not have gone much better.
    The bar manager estimated the crowd at 400 and told me the set-list was "effective".
    He asked me to call Monday and book a couple of Summer dates.......................we finally had one of those great nights...................and of course, when the crowd is into it, the band plays at their best.................fun !

    We've had a few months off. Clubs are slow right now, and aren't booking paid bands. Hopefully it picks up with income tax returns coming in lol

    I had planed on having this week off but it turns out I'm booked at a small club tonight . Not up for it . It's a jazz fusion type of gig where you have to on or it sounds like poop . But I am off the rest of the weekend .
    Next month....busy .
