    Hi Everyone -

    Although this is from 2015, we finally completed our HD video of Nowhere Man performed in downtown Claremont, CA on October 30. The video includes several HD photos from this gig as well.

    Here's the new video:

    Our next gig is October 28th at the same Village Square in Claremont from 6-9 pm. This will be the final night of their "Friday Nights Live" concert series for 2016, which runs from May through October each year.

    Please come out and join us if you're in the area, and let me know what you think of the video!

    I swear, no more Nowhere Man videos after this one...

    Thanks,
    Nixdad

    Hi Chris,

    That was most excellent! You know, I think my family and I were at that performance last year. That's when my daughter first asked Hai if you guys could play "Hey Buldog". ;)

    Terrific job on the video. That should impress anyone thinking of hiring you guys. Dare I say it was "Fabulous"? :)


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

    "Fabulous", indeed! I recently told the KRB that they rocked. Now, YOU GUYS rock!! Most excellent. (I'm sorrier and sorrier I live so far away...)

    That is indeed FABulous! What a great twist on the usual tribute band, be yourselves performing the music.

    Thanks Cliff - that means a lot. It was pretty fun to put together once I figured out what needed to be done.

    Hopefully, "Hey Bulldog" makes it onto our list for 2017!

    Thanks growlypants! It's nice to be considered in the company of the KRB.

    Very kind of you to say so, dbase. You need to make that trip a reality and see a bunch of us lunkheads all during the same trip.

    Thanks, G-Dog! Being ourselves is definitely a part of what makes us unique - no wigs or costumes for us.

    Can you imagine me in a Sgt. Pepper outfit? It would look like a blue satin tent. HA!

    Outstanding video Chris :thumbsup: I never get tired of listening to you guys. :cool:

    Between me, Chris and Cliff, when dbase gets out here it will be a 40Hz lunkhead fest for sure! :woot:

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    Good harmonies ... but ... 2 bass players?

    It seems odd, but its just the way this group came together after an impromptu jam session at a member's 50th Birthday party; eight friends performing the music we all love. Although there are 2 of us, we alternate (I play bass on about 2/3 of the material, and typically on most "new" material we choose to cover as well.)

    I'm extremely critical of anyone playing my Beatles but I have to say that was some of the coolest stuff I've heard congrats.

    Thanks Grant!

    Wow. Very nice of you to say so, SirMjac28.

    Thanks, mikeyjm2! Come out to southern California - you'll be able to see bunch of us bottom dwellers.

    Thanks Bassammich!

    Perhaps one could play a baritone guitar ...
