    I played a nice cool jazz gig to ring the new year and it was minutes from my place.

    We took this year off. First year in 10 that we haven’t played, but our wives wanted to spend the evening with us.

    One of my hobby bands normally plays on Sunday nights, so we made it into a party including dinner. We usually play until 10, but last night we played until just before midnight, stopped to ring in the New Year with a bottle of bubbly, and then finished up with our usual closer Wooly Bully. Everybody who had been consuming stayed overnight. I can't think of a more fun way to celebrate NYE!

    We did an hour set early enough that we were able to be home before the incapacitated drivers hit the road. Even made the paper, apparently.

The event raised money to complete the Frank Loomis Palmer Amphitheater project. Playing guitar is Christian Brunelle, left, Joe Glennon on drums, playing bass is Bob Farace, second from right, and on keyboard is Scott Mayfield, right. (Dana Jensen/The Day)

    I've just gotta say that Post-Traumatic Jazz Disorder is an awesome band name!

  8. We played a New Year's Eve show. 9:30-12:30, three 45-minute sets with breaks. A good time was had by all. Here we are with me on my Gibson SG bass.

    Gigged Saturday night and got together with band guys to see the new year in. We busted out the instruments way after midnight and jammed morphing from one song to the next with some awesome interludes of musical mischief.
