    We go on about 10:00 pm 3/6 Ann Arbor Michigan. The venue is called the Heidelberg. It's on Main Street next to the Blind Pig. My band is named Top Dead Center. Come watch us play and introduce yourselves. I'd very much like to meet some fellow TBers and get some feedback on my playing from someone besides my friends. We play about two sets then another band goes on so we get to chat and have some beers, come on down and hang out......Vinnie...aka RicPlaya
     
  2. What kind of tunes do you play?

    I've played the Heidelberg and the Blind Pig. Back in the "old days". Ann Arbor is a fun town. I've got a gig that same night or I'd come down and say hello.
    Rock on with your bad self!

    We play all kinds of Rock, covers and a couple originals. We will play 2 sets, unfortunatley we have been asked to play newer covers, but we have a really cool mix we are still keeping a couple of old school jams in there. Hope you guys can make it!

    When you play towards my end of town (westside) let me know man I'll come check you guys out. You gig way me than me, you've been at it a lot longer I'd like to see some good bassin in Detroit for a change!
     
  6. I'll be there if I'm not working or out of town for some reason. I presume you mean the Club Above the Heidelberg rather than the restaurant itself; I played a gig there once a while back...good times. I'll hope to be there...make sure you bump this thread up a day or two before the show; I'm a forgetful bastid :p

    And speaking of good bassin' in Detroit, I haven't seen you play yet either, P. Aaron...ya never tell me about any of your gigs! What's the deal, yo? :D

    I have a gig that night also or else I'd make the trip down to check you out. Keep the gigspam coming, I've got to have a weekend off sometime that coincides with one or your gigs.

    You fellows are too kind. I can play Bass guitar, but some of the people here at TalkBass really know the instrument.

    Most of you guys could play what I play. But, I'm learnin'.

    But since you asked, March 6, at "The House of ShamRocks". Located on the East side of John R., North of 9 Mile Road, in the lovely City of Hazel Park, MI.

    Is that across the street from the Fleetwood Diner?
    If so, I closed that place up a few times some years ago...
    Good luck with the gig!

    Can you run a cassette? I'd love to hear one of your show!

    It may be, it's on Main next to the Blind Pig if that helps. As far as recording the show we are getting a new mixing board soon with more auxillarys so we can plug in the CD burner and record live. I can't wait till we do that we have a great live vibe and tone, a real decent set up and a solid sound guy. Thanks Thor, thanks for the good wishes, I'll keep that in mind about a recording down the road.

    Naw, the Fleetwood is on the corner of Liberty and Ashley. The Heidelberg is on the West side of Main St. just North of Miller Rd., about 4 blocks apart they are.
