I received a call from a friend of mine about filling in for his band at a small venue about a week ago, and since Interstate Exiles were off that night, jumped at the chance. I don't know about you guys, but I love fill in gigs. The night races by and I really have to concentrate on what I'm doing, especially working with a different drummer that I am used to. So the night begins....... Nice ad above, but no saxophone, just two guitars, bass and drums. Oh and no jam session either.....Sheesh, where do promoters get this stuff. Really cool signage. This room was closed for about six months, and just reopened with new Chef and management. Here's the drummer setting up his kit. For those of you used to my regular rhythm partner in Interstate Exiles, I asked him where the rest of it was. Another view of his kit. Snare, trigger pad for his metronome, one tom and an electronic kick, high hat and one ride cymbal. It took him about five minutes to set up and if I wouldn't have been distracting him, even less. My little corner of heaven and blues. Required rig of the night photo - Genzler head with my Schroeder 2 x 12. One trip from the car could get me spoiled. And last but not least a shot of the front of the stage. Sorry no pics of the performance. Maybe next time....... Tomorrow night (April 13), Interstate Exiles travels about 75 miles to a new venue on one of our state's lakes. Have a good gig !
