    Howdy, folks. Tonight marks the beginning of a biweekly gig for the Bassmonkeee at Birdi's in Downtown Decatur.

    We'll be playing mostly 40s-60s blues with a couple of jazz standards thrown in for good measure. The guitar player and drummer are both amazing musicians, and also tasty players.

    We're playing from 8-11, and there is no cover charge.

    You can mapquest using the address: 121 Sycamore St, Decatur, GA (this is actually the business NEXT to Birdi's, but I couldn't find their address online).

    Or, you can just find the Courthouse on E Ponce, and turn into the horseshoe shaped parking lot next to it, and you'll be facing Birdi's Blue neon sign.

    Hope to see you there!

    :D

    ...well darn...we woulda made the ride out if we'd known...
     
  9. Drat! We were going to give you guys a call, but every time we thought about it, it was kind of late. Joe was Diving every day but Monday, which is when we left.

    I think we're going back in a couple of months. I'll be sure to let you know next time.

    I'm always up late (typical musician type :D), besides, e-mail is free and don't ring at midnight ;). Well, if the next TB shindig is in August, I believe me -n- the missus will be there (barring any unforseen gigs interfering). We'll get together either way soon! :D

    Thanks, Joe.

    Been a rough week (dislocated shoulder, drummer has a sub filling in so he can go to a funeral, etc...), so thanks for remembering to bug everyone for me, even when I forgot.

    Also, I will be bringing the 8 string fretless with me to the gig tonight. It remains to be seen how much use it will see at the blues gig. :D

    I want to check this out, but I'm heading out of town this afternoon. I'll try to make the next one in two weeks. If the schedule changes, please post something. Hope it goes well.
     
  19. Well...I've got to say I really enjoyed it! Youz guyz is playin' my kind-o-jazz! Had a great time....sorry we couldn't stay until the end! The new bass is incredible too! :D

    Everyone in the area should definitely try to check it out! I think the next gig is August 15th.

    Thanks for coming out, Lisa. I figure it went pretty well considering that was a friend of ours subbing on drums. Did ya notice that pretty much every song ended the exact same way? :D

    Don't feel bad about leaving early. Asking anyone to stay for a 3 hours is a bit much.

    And, yes, the next gig is August 15th.

    Thanks to Hambone for showing up, too!
