    So my phone brought up some old gig pics. Thought since we aren’t gigging now, and we don’t have Cliff’s gigs to drool over, we could share some.


    This is from a fancy gig we did in January 2019. You can’t see me as I’m behind the singer in this shot, but that’s the best place for me.

    Joined an originals band last summer. Optimal situation: great guys, great musicians, great songs. No egos. Everyone lives close by. Everyone has cool wives and kids. We worked up a set and got a gig at The Mint in LA, which I've been to loads of times and always wanted to play. Pic below from our very first show on March 7. We went over really well, were invited back, and got 3 more bookings out of it. Then the world fell apart. IMG_8008.jpg
    I'll have to dig around for my favorite gig pic but this is the most recent and from a show I was really happy with.

  3. From Bayfield WI, summer 2018, Lake Superior is right behind the gazebo we were playing in. I've been attending these Tues night shows whenever we're up there for over 25 years so I was thrilled that we were invited 3 years in a row. Looks like they won't be happening this year though.

    Opened for Psycho Stick at the Forge in Joliet, Illinois. The place was packed. One of the best gigs ever. One of the guitar players had a broken foot. IMG_3342.JPG

    Well that looked like a pretty nice gig. The band looks sharp.

    For grins and giggles, here's a pic of the True Willie Band in downtown Austin in front of the W Hotel outside from where Austin City Limits is filmed.


    Thank you for your indulgence,

  8. This was a retirement party for a good friend, the lady in the middle. She is also going to be our newest member when we're up and going again, taking over lead vocals and cajon.

    A shot from our last gig in March before the shutdown. I'm looking forward to getting back into it in the not to distant future, especially now that I have no job to go back to.

    Back in early March 2019. Took a break from shows after that and writing new material in preparation for 2020. Guess we all know how that ended up :dead:

    I remember gigs! Ha, here's a pic from my last show on Fremont St before they shut it down, actually we were onstage the next night on the main stage and soundchecked for the 7-10pm slot and management showed up and shut down all stages on Fremont before we got to do our show. IMG_4886.JPG
