    yeehaw! well, i got called the other day to play with a band who recently lost their bassist. i left my name and phone number in several music stores and made sure to try out a few basses---just fart around you know, so the guy who posted my info on the store's board would have at least something to say about me if someone asked...apparently, i got a great endorsement from _someome_. i'm not even having to audition...i met the band leader today and got some 4 track recordings of their tunes, which are all original. i can tell that the band was heavily influenced by a lot of 70's rock and roll and maybe some old school funk. it's really fun music. i'm kinda scootin' across the floor on my rolly chair shaking me head....and my 14 month old is dancing, so... they have about 20 songs recorded and i'm about midway through them now. sounds pretty cool...a lot of space, a talented guitarist, and a non-overbearing drummer ;) i was encouraged to pretty much cut loose. we'll be rehearsing early next week....can't wait! oh yeah, the band's name is tonka. cool, huh? i'll keep you guys posted

  3. Congrats!

    I'm still waitin on a call back from a local group. They are checking out another bassist, but if he doesn't work out, I'm in! I'm stoked because they are so close. Only people in need of a bassist seem to be at least an hours drive away.
    I'm biting my nails waiting for the call....
