    Das rite y'all...Gard and his evil gang (aka Rico Monaco & Sol Sons) are invading Gotham!!!

    :eek:

    Thursday Aug. 15: Arlene's Grocery 11pm-1am (or whenever they toss us out! :D)

    Friday Aug. 16: Le Bar Bat 8:30pm (45 minute "showcase" set)

    Any details I've left out that you need (addresses, phone number to the venues) can be found here

    Tito Puente Jr will be dropping by both shows to sit in for a few tunes as well, so we'll be doing a bit of his dad's stuff as well.

    Hope all y'all up in the NYC area can make it out, I always appreciate pro-level hecklers. :p

    I'll be in town from the 14th through the 17th (Wed-Sat), hope some of us can hook up for a cruise of Sadowsky's or other fun places while I'm in town!

    :D

    I shall do my absolute best to bring a few friends to Arlene's on Thursday. That's one of my favorite places.

    I'll be playing on Friday at Desmonds - Park Ave. and 29th at 10:30 for anyone who might want to pass by there and catch 2 Talkbassers in one night....

    If Nino's band is playing Continental at like 12 or 1 this could be one helluva Takbass night in NYC! Everybody should go see everybody :) !
     
  16. I'm coming, that's for sure.(Friday) Gard, if you gig doesn't run too late, let's try to see Joe N. and Nino. After that, I can show you guys some watering holes. When are you going back, Saturday of Sunday?

    Can't wait to see yous* all.

    Mike J.
    *Yes this IS how we talk in Noo Yawk!

    Mike -

    GREAT!!! The Fri gig is early and short, 45 minutes at 8:30, and I'm up for some runnin' 'round with yous guys... ;) Only hang for me is gettin' my axes to a safe place before running off...I believe I'm staying on 30th St (Thirty 30th St ring a bell to any Noo Yawkuhs?)

    Anyone that can make the Thurs gig will get a real picture of us, we're going to play at least 2 hours! :D
     
  18. Sounds great, Gard. I gotta go now, they're closing up my building for construction. I won't be back here at TB until Tuesday August 13th. I'll talk to you then.

    Catch you later.
