Daytona beachside gig!

Just got back from Daytona beach ! because of the storm the last few days , they moved a few stages indoors. We went on at 6:30 ,had a great set, quite afew people were there , and I drank a few beers! Erica went with me and we had a nice lunch at BUBBA GUMP restaurant. She has been in pain since mid- week when she was involved in a hit and run accident. She has back problems anyway and this made it worse! I do appreciate that she came today! We play tomorrow at Leu Gardens in orlando at 4pm. Then it's back to the day job on Monday.It has been a rough couple weeks in the band you know, all the pressures of being a rock star make us insane. we don't always see eye to eye on everything but we do play well together and people like us! Thanks to the band for the card they gave me ! Although unnecessary, it is appreciated! I love my Sundays off so I can watch my Pittsburgh Steelers play!


see ya soon!

last sat .night party and jam session.

Sat night we had a party/jam session, to send off for Randy and Ann for their wedding and vacation. A couple other musicians jammed with us and there was plenty of food and drink.Bing played the new song he is working on "Monster" When he came back after dropping off Jae at 11:30 or so! It has potential to be a "Radio air play" song. Bing wrote in his blog, that we didn't seem enthusiastic and that the party ended abruptly!after he played the song. Well, we are at a "party" not a gig and we already had jammed for a few hours. Bunky was tired ,I was tired, Erica had a broken tow and it was HOT and muggy .It was around midnight when we left. Erica and I arrived about 7pm and had things to do on sunday. I think Bing thought we were not interested in the song but we were just TIRED! That's all!Anyway things are fine,but I do need some time off right now to regroup.

SEE YA SOON!

July 4th weekend!

Well, I have just returned from our show at 903 cityside at lake eola! A great time was had by all! To top it off, I came home unloded the gear and Erica took a soak in the tub and I turned on the tv and the "Pepsi 400" NASCAR race was on! They had a 2 and a half hour rain delay and they were only on lap 24 . Sometimes rain is good ! I am a big Nascar fan.Mark Martin is my driver,he was hit on lap 36 and out of the race! But he is having a great year. Last night we played at the City of Eustis 4th of July celebration that went really well and we sold a bunch of CD's too!Tomorrow, Erica and I are staying home and I am cooking Steaks on the grill! Then, on the 4th Of July, We are playing at the Lake Eola band shell in downtown orlando! There should be several thousand people there. We are playing from 4:45 to 5:15! It will be a short setbut, we were glad to be invited.

see ya soon!
