Band Stuff
« on: August 10, 2012, 10:46:17 am »
Vettie and the boys are gonna be in Nashville tonight at 12th and Porter.

Leaving here in an hour or so to get our stuff together. I actually get to join in a little tonite.

Another Band that Vettie is starting to manage is called Banish the Silence. We got a gig in Sept for a town party called 'depot Days',  Roughly 10 to 12k visitors come to Depot days each year and Banish is the head liner for the entertainment event and I actually get to play a little guitar with these guys too (just some acoustic stuff, nothing fancy).

So i will use this forum to post about music stuff such as guitars and gigs. All are welcome to post and join in.

Got back home about 4 am.

Great show, blew the room away. there were 3 other bands there. We all played 1 1/2 hour sets.
It was the Club Owners birthday bash and every year he has a 'themed' birthday party. Last year it was 80s rock, this year 90s rock so we had to play all 90s covers.

We played 1st and then joined the last band for about a 20 to 30 minute jam. After we played, i went out into the floor area and people were really talking about how they liked us considering we were so 'old' (youngest in our band is 43), LOL.

Had a great time, pretty tired. Fingers a bit sore. I actually got to play some acoustic stuff on a couple of songs (intros and a couple of small solo parts) and I didnt screw up.

Like I said, after our set, I went out in the crowd and (got a drink) and mingled a little. This girl (probably about 24) comes up to me and said "hey, you were in that band that just played werent you?" "Yes". "You guys were really good. I love your hair, you wanna go outside for a little while?" I laffed and said "How old are you?" She said "I am old enough to be in here." I said "How old do you think I am?" She said "I dunno, maybe 30 something." I laffed again. Then I said "I probably have kids as old or older than you." She said "Really? Like how old ARE you?" I said "over 50". She said "No way" I said "yeah, I am." then she said "well if thats true, I cant fuck you, that would be like fucking my dad, with nice hair, ewww." I said, "and for me it would be like fucking my daughter, except you are really hot."

I didnt get laid...shit happens.

Chief, now, if that was Prime, he would think;"If there's grass on the field, I'm playing ball."  :P

Or, you could go with what Fat Momma's fat brother would say; "if you're old enough to pee, you're old enough for me."  :P



Good to see you Poppa Kazak!  ;)
