Private Party Tonight
« on: May 24, 2014, 10:43:08 PM »
It's here in town, up by the Ramona Bowl, home of the world famous Ramona Pagent, the area I refer to as "Pill Hill" as all the doctors in town live up there.  It's outside, so I'm taking a bigger amp than usual, and it should be a pretty good one.  Sound system and all that good stuff, so it should be an easy run.
They call it the Blues, but the shit makes me SMILE!

This one went nicely.  I used a Strat for the first half of the gig, but wasn't really happy with my tone as we were playing outside and it sounded kind of thin, so I switched over to my Tele and started getting really killer tone.  I haven't been able to use my Les Paul in quite a while because I'm having a lot of issues with my back and the weight factor has just been playing Hell with me, but normally it's the guitar I'd go to in an outside venue.  A lot of the guys there were aspiring Blues players,, so surprisingly  most of the requests we got were right off our playlist.  A lot of people there had our CDs, so we had a lot of requests for stuff off the albums!  All in all everybody had a pretty good time!

Cool.  No gigs for may, 1 for June and looks like the fall might be a crazy time.  Keep on makin it smoke!
Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.

A gig for this Friday just fell from the sky.  Next weekend I've got two gigs with Laura.  A Thursday gig June 12.  A gig at a lake resort June 20, and it looks like I'm getting 2-3 more lake gigs(July/Aug).   Playing a county fair in western Kansas with Laura, in July.  Almost as busy as I want to be, for now.

We've (Raildog) been gradually getting a new demo done.   We are have a nice 'studio live' setup at rehearsal. 

Kind of hard hustling gigs with no current audio, video, pictures.  Bookers who don't know me/my band, want to see vids, and ask where we've been playing.  Tough to re-establish the momentum.   And I'm turning down the cheesy exposure gigs.
