    Awesome, funkee1. Congrats, and I hope your gig goes well.

    I'm also glad to hear Stanley is out and about again. He was going through a tough time for a while there, with his divorce and whatnot, and it seems he was devoting more energy to movie scores than anything else.

    Actually, I'd love to come see your show. Where can I get tickets? :)

    We played to a packed house. We sold more tickets than the other band, so we went on right before Stanley! We were VERY well received!

    Stanley was off the chain! He's still got it. Jighlight of the show: The played "Confirmation" and got lost! They were very loose and joking on stage. This is a new band for Stanley, and the drummer is badd!!!!!!!!
    Keyboardist from Russia, and a violinist from Sweden, but they were up to the task!

    It was a great show.
