    I'll be playing with Electric Woodshed this Friday @ Blacksburg's annual street fair Stepping Out. We're on the main stage @ 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM.

    Please catch us if you can. I hope to see you there!

    For a short outdoor set like this, it'll just be me, King Koa, my Streamliner 900 and my Berg HT-322. Well, maybe one pedal on the floor (my latest - the Wren & Cuff Box of War).

    Wish I could make it Greg, but it's a bit too much of a road trip. I bet you will sound fantastic. Cheers - PC

    I hope we do. We don't play together nearly as much as we used to, so rust has become a factor lately. And we're throwing in 3-4 new tunes or tunes that we haven't played in many years. We're rehearsing tonight, so we'll see how it all comes together!

    Should be fun, even if it is a big, hot mess!

    Thanks, Steve - I look forward to seeing you there!

    The addition of of a couple new songs & the bringing back of some throw-back favorites from before George & I joined... well, it' a real treat for us. I just hope everyone watching feels the same. :)

    Wow. So the Shed's original bass player is coming back into town today, and I'm usually more than happy to let him sit in when we're doing a long, multi-set show somewhere. He's a super cool guy and a great bass player to boot. But today the lead guitar player asks me if I'll sit down during the one song with a bass solo in a very short set at what is usually the biggest/best gig we play all year. Really? I mean, REALLY?!?!?

    Yeah, I shot that down. Man alive, I just hope I've calmed down by the time I get to the stage later this evening. :mad:

    We're playing "Do You Feel Like We Do" tonight for the first time ever... I almost snarkily suggested that we let one of our guitar instructors "sit-in" on that one and take all the leads. But I'm too nice to do that. :rollno:

    That sucks............ but the request did come from a guitar player.

    Try to calm your anger, have a couple cold ones, enjoy the music anyway.

    Yeah - I'm almost to the point of laughing about it. Almost. :)

    No respect.

    Yeah, he really stepped in it tonight. We had it going pretty good. Time was cut a little short due to rain, and of course the tune with my solo in it got cut. He's going to get an earful when I get back. First he tries to give it away. I tell him no, I'm really excited to play it. Then he cuts it. 'Cause lord knows 9 guitar solos isn't enough. Now I'm really pissed. That might just be the last ride for the Woodshed with me in the bass seat.

    On a more positive note - King Koa was getting some very nice reviews on the street. Looks AND tone. Me very happy about that. And I thank the REDDI for doing it's thing, too. That's just like butter on your tone through a big PA like the festival had tonight.
     
  13. After our nice chat yesterday afternoon, nothing you're saying surprises me.

    Hope you follow through on your idea...
