    This Thursday December 6th at Egan's Ballard Jam House
    One of my groups hits at 9:00. Hard Bop Quintet, with some original compositions.
    We were scheduled for the early show and got moved to 9:00, which will cost us some of our mid-week crowd, so I thought I'd put it out to the TB family.

    If anyone wants to get out and about this week, I'd love to see and/or meet you and would appreciate the support. There's a $5 cover.

    Not that I'm in any way advocating, but I promoted it as an "End of Prohibition Party" on Facebook, just for the marketing kitsch. Our recent referendum kicks in on Thursday. I will be entirely substance free, but I have been told that we sound better if you are not. :)

    No problem guys and thanks. You not being there and relying on me to tell you about it, just enables me to continue to build up the legend!

    This particular band is very hit and miss. A very good idea that occasionally works. Thursday night could go either way.
     
  7. This is very cool Troy and what this media does well. Promote our music and let us know about the gigs. Can somebody get some pictures Thursday and post them, so those that can't be there can get the vibe? Thanks.

    Thanks, Chuck. I've got a friend who will be there and is never without his camera. If no TB folk make it, I'll grab one or two from him and post.

    I like the first one because I'm doing my Carl Spackler face

    One with more of the band in it.

    It was a good night. We sold out and played exceptionally well for us. I do a lot of unglamorous gigs and this band is off again on again and therefore kind of hit and miss. I love it when it goes well.

    We closed with a Brubeck tribute.

    Nice, Troy! I'm so happy that it was a good gig for you.

    Sometimes this 'busy with work' thing just sucks. :(
