    It is my ex band. Playing was fun but we couldn't get more than 20 people to gig, it was rather sad.

    While not quite The Ventures, not too far away. A couple of tweaks, you're there. :thumbsup:

    We were better looking in the dark, maybe that's one of the reasons of unsuccess ;-)

    I'm never shy about posting videos :)

    This is from a coffee house gig few years ago before we added drums.

    McG .. it's supposed to be "Sucky" videos .. That one is too good for this thread. And why are you sitting higher than the others? Are you the BL? ;)

    Bummer. I really wanted to be a part of this thread. :oops: Do I need to delete it? :nailbiting: I'll see if I can find a worse one.;)

    I'm on the stool to be seen. The space is only wide enough for two across. I sat on a regular chair the first time there and only saw the back of the guys heads and the audience couldn't see me. Hmm... maybe that wasn't such a bad thing. :laugh:

    I just read the news of Merle Haggard's passing. Interesting that I would pick his composition "Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down" to post here. I've been texting with the band and in honor of Merle we're putting it back on the set list.

    RIP Merle, you were one of the greats!!

    The sucky part is myself and the drummer are no longer in the band.





    For anyone wondering, in the second video at 0:20 I'm trying to motion the people from the beer stand near the stage to bring us some free beers...... and they did right when the song ended.

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    I think the cameraman was drunk here ...

    First gig this past Saturday night, you can almost see me in the shadows to the right of the drums. I added the silly video effects
