    We did one set at Hat Tricks last night. It is the night management previews bands. They are looking for:
    • Opening Acts for their name acts
    • Bands for other clubs they book
    • Bands to book for the nights they don't bring in a name act.
    Darn, can't link to a facebook video. I'll have to find another way.

    There are two kinds, really. Country is big and the other is classic rock. We do classic rock. We do a lot of southern rock, some Blues, and a few country tunes.

    Hi,

    I really like Tom Petty these days. I wasn't a huge fan back in the day but he's really grown on me lately. Good job! Thanks for sharing. I hope you get more gigs and share them with us! :)


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

    Thanks, @BassCliff, we stay pretty busy, but we are trying to move up a level on the food chain.

    Totally thought you were going to quote Blues Brothers for a second." Both kinds, Country, and Western."

    I'm pretty sure I used to play that place regularly, but it was called something else back then. My forgetter is working pretty well these days.

    Anyway, sounds like an opportunity with potential. Wish you well.

    My mother-in-law lives in Lewisville, right off the interstate. I live a thousand miles from there, luckily. Are they finished with all that roadwork yet? lol.
