{July 31, 2013}   Whiskey Tavern was a Total Blast!

Okay, if you read my last post, I was pondering what kind of night the band was going to have at the Whiskey Tavern a place we’ve never played ever before!  Well, let me tell you, it was a blast. 

The crowd was fun and rowdy.  We had lots of dancing and applause all night long.  At the end of the night when Mel was trying to say goodnight, he said everyone wanted to shake his hand and told him we were the best band they had ever heard in there.  Well, that’s awesome.

And we really rocked it up.  I mean we are a country band, but our song selection is upbeat.  Yeah, sure we have a tear in our beer on occasion, because everyone needs a sad song once in a while.  But mostly we keep it hopping and rowdy.  From Dwight Yoakum, George Jones and Merle Haggard, to Jason Aldean, Jake Owen and Blake Shelton, we find the fun stuff and we will take your breath away with the energy that we put into a song.  So you better be in good shape if you want to keep up with us.

But that energy does catch up with a person once in while, like me, for example.  Sure at 1am I was having a great old time, excited and pumped up.  Then we tore down the equipment, like rolling up miles of chords, packing up microphones, lights, guitars, and then back into the pickup truck.  All of sudden, it’s not so much fun.

We have a bass player buddy who says, “I play for free, you pay me to move gear”  well I totally get that.  Playing is too much fun, humping gear, huh, not so much.  But it’s a small price to pay for being a rock star.  Ah!
