We had a long ride, but it was a great time seeing our brothers and sisters in Ogden and Salt Lake City, Utah. Brewski’s and The Garage on Beck... ROCK!
Much thanks to Big Daddy Les Taylor for all his help, we had a blast hearing him playing his butt off! Some very funny times and some good laughs as well. Like the folks in the hotel lobby who made the comment as we got on the elevator, “we had no idea the circus was in town!” We may have had that Rock and Roll Circus look!
The band is turning corners! The groove and the dynamics, it’s all falling into place.
I wish we had a bunch of time to do things… but we don’t. It’s looking like eight more shows of the Fillmore East tribute and that should take us up to 2017. We all have other projects and this one has been big fun, but it looks like a busy year for everyone in the band.
As we say around camp, were here for a good time… Not a long time!
It really is a lot of fun and a lot of challenge on our chops to play the music. Much like we have learned from the Allman Brothers Band, we don’t always play things the same way twice. The spontaneity to either take a long or short solo and pumping out jamming harmonies we just made up on the spot… has been a kind of a mystical thing how it all comes together.
We hope to see you in Carlsbad on June 25th at the Carlsbad Village Theatre. Plenty of bike parking, great food and fun bars for before and after the show.
Watch out for the tail dragging dinosaurs!
