Mary, please come out, and introduce yourself. I have another friend, Janice, who trains with Bob Kehayes and often comes out to Big Leagues when I play there.
The whole band is going to dress up like 70's hippies so it should be fun!
They're even having a best-costume prize!
I hope you like HEAVY rock!

Sounds good, I like the sound of organ and guitar. Is that a Parker Flye in one of those pictures?
I was dreaming of the past...

Hey Laird:

Sam Moon!
I did all the keys and co-background vocals on that record!
1982, awesome time.I was in his band 4 years, went to Alaska in '81.

The Snakeye record was '79, I was in that band for almost 4 years including a stint in Toronto, the guys from Saga (Pockets) came down to the Gasworks to see us!
I left Snakeye to join a punk-rock spoof band called "Taboo" ( Clancey's Bar,was the Wyse Owl, remember Carrol the bouncer?)

I'm amazed you found those album covers -- oh well, there's all my seedy past for all the internet to see. WTF!

You must have been there!

I remember a boxer dude on the door at the wyse owl. I use to go listen to Dutchie sing the blues. Never made it to Clancey's left the area before that happened I think.

But some things you just never forget. :wink:

Sadly none of my writing is published, so, no, I'm not on Amazon.
(Line left untouched.)

We love sharing our music, that's what it's all about, we're all ex-pro's, now weekend warriors with day jobs. (and Karate for me!)
But we take our band and music very seriously and people really respond to it, I guess because it's truly sincere and "not about us", but the music.

Apart from the original audio clips, our cover stuff is AC/DC, Nirvana, Aerosmith, Zeppelin, Doors, Metallica, Pearl Jam -- that kind of material, with some Eagles, Goo-Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20 and even Jimmy Buffet to get everyone settled in early in the night.

Great fun, very rewarding. And loud.
I have some Uechi/musician friends as well.

And, BTW, how's the guitar coming along?

My guitar learning has gone slowly over the last year. The first three months were good - and then I tore a muscles in my left ring finger that took over two months to heal and then...summer...and then my...

Well anyway - suffices to say that Nov 1st is my start date to get back on the wagon, get my callouses back, and find a teacher. I had thought to teach myself and now I think I'd do better with someone to visit every couple of weeks.

Know anybody who takes beginners in DC?

Ahmed:

I'm sorry dude, but we can't post performances of songs by recorded artists, although that's mainly what we do in our bar shows.
Clubs pay a yearly fee to the publishers for cover bands playing copyrighted material, but websites don't, so we can't post cover material.

How about the next time we do "Woman" by WolfMother I dedicate it to you?
Best I can offer!
