    Wish you guys were coming to the west cost. Your new Brotherhood of Groove CD rocks & grooves all night long!

  3. hey Mark,

    we're probably coming to the West Coast this winter. I'll keep you informed, man.

    thanks for the kind words on the disc. it was big fun to do the album. great guest performers! I think the new stuff will surprise you...

    from the lows,

  4. I listen to WWOZ every Saturday night for the Brass Band Jam and the Soul Power. Gives me my weekly dose of funk. Anyway, I will check you guys out online this Saturday, and watch for you when I am in the Big Sleazy (its my favorite little getaway). Good luck, and come through Memphis sometime. I'll spread the word via a local music email ring (Memphis Music Crew).
  5. Man, that's an incredible rig. Happy gigging to you.
  6. hey guys,

    thanks for the kind words. WWOZ should be fun. they're kind enough to occasionally play my solo stuff, too. as to the Memphis run, keep checking my site and the band's for info. I'll post here, too.

    and FC, thanks for the rig review. it'd be great to have you check it out some time. lemme know if we're ever in the same area and we can do a gear hang.

    from the lows,

  7. Hey Stew, I should be at Winter NAMM again this year, so hopefully I'll see you there. I love hearing those Whappos!
  8. hey funky,

    it'd be great to hang! you'll usually find me where there are Conklins, AccuGrooves, Bees, and crazy bassists!

    :smug: :bassist:

  12. hey man!

    long time, no words! how've you been? what's the latest?

    we're definitely trying to add locations to our Florida venues, so feel free to make recommendations. you can email me even if there's none of that on your mind!


    from the lows,

  13. Stew, your visits to Atlanta seem to have the same effect as a TB get together, it's a sure thing I'll have a gig that day. Good luck with the tour, hope to catch ya'll one day.
  14. hey Joe_A,

    sorry we'll miss each other. if it's any consolation, the rest of the BOG will bein Atlanta tonight seeking shelter from Hurricane Ivan!


    from the lows,

  15. I was glad to see N.O. dodged another one. I hope your folks got out of Atlanta before it hit here. Just spent 16 hours w/o power.

    If they are still in town, they might want to hang on for the weekend, dryer weather and some good music at Harvest Fest.
  16. thanks, man! we were pretty lucky (knocking on wood) and now everyone's up in Oxford, Mississippi for a 2 night stand. we're all back home again tomorrow.
