Default Where have I been?

I know. No one cares. But I'm gonna share anyway...

We recently fired one guitarist and got two in return. We are about to open for Emerson Drive in our hometown. Anyone semi-local is welcome to attend. It's a free, all ages show. I put a like with the details at the bottom.

I haven't had chops for a month or more now. Just got tired of them again. They grow so fast, that it's easy to let them get out of control.

If you wear anything under a kilt it becomes a skirt.

Maybe that's why I'm the only one in the family to let their hair grow long and every now and then go unshaven for 4 months or more.
I once took the test to work for the post office, but I didn't take it because #1- I would have had to a $3 an hour cut in pay (although I would have been able to get 6 weeks paid vacation) and #2- I'd have gotten shot from another employee going Postal do to my joking around.

I almost forgot when I once ran for Mayor of Price Hill, the main qualifying item you need to run for that position is a big hole in your exhaust system of your car as well as a headlight and a taillight burnt out.

Dang, I thought you were secretly building that Bonneville car and just set some kind of record or something. So where can someone hear some of your music that doesn't live even remotely close to hear it live?

Well, I'm not sure... We have some early stuff on youtube, but it's VERRRRRRY low quality stuff. We also have a double live CD, but once again, it's never been edited. We just set a mic in the back of the bar, ran it to the board, and hit the record function. We were going into the studio this past winter... We didn't, and now is the time of year when we get busy so it may be a while.....

Welp, we finally got the videos from all the different people who took them. And we have a few loaded. The sound is a bit off (I think it was the program he used to compress it). But the sound stage we were using was also over powering the mic on the cameras and it was an out door show. We really don't sound this muffled....


Enjoy....?

Ray you guys rock!!! Where I work, theres 3 members of a local band called Core that play alot of gigs, bike shows, been to Vegas and back on tour and a few other claims to fame, but you guys are FAR better than they are. Ive played in a couple of bands back in the day myself so Im not just saying that. You guys have talent and your bass lines are right on the mark. Do any of you write and have any original music?
Excellent stuff even through the muffled sound.

Yeah, the last song "Baby Done Gone" is one of our own. We have three other originals that we do (and about nine total), but the camera died about 1/2 way through the show and the other one we got on tape sounds really bad. I don't know if it was the wind, if she was to "in line" with the speaker towers, or what, but you can't hear it at all.
