  3. Here is a clip from some of our improv jamming. Be kind - it is an improv after all. ;) I'll post another clip or two when I get them cut down in editing.

    Duke update
    Looks like two of the bands I was going to play with have run into some speed bumps
    The commute from Waukesha to Manitowoc is more physically demanding on me then I had anticipated
    So I may keep my ears open for an opening here in the Waukesha area

    I was kinda wondering how that commute was going to work out for you.

    You still gonna try for awhile? Some tough decisions there.

    Maybe your wife could drive? :D

    That's quite a commute. I live in Jackson and commuted to Kenosha for a band. Took about 90 minutes each way. It was aweful. Now I commute to Watertown. Still a 50-minute drive, but there's some weird mental thing about it being less than an hour.

    My wife is my biggest fan and play keys in my band for 5 years back from 86-91
    She only comes out if I am playing outside.
    2nd
    The Kolache Bros are playing the 8 gigs we have this year and will decide 2022 when our drummer returns from AZ in the spring
    I only agreed to join his other band Howard and the Bluegills because he asked.
    His life has changed and he no longer will be with Howard
    The two surviving members of Howard want to take the band ( with a new name and female singer) in a different direction which means learning 50 new tunes
    Without my friend and drummer and add in the 200+ miles round trip per gig and $35 for fuel
    Just too many cons and not enough pros
    I hope this is clear as mud to every one
    PS
    Howard was put together by the drummer about 10 years ago, so they had a good run

    Your wife's a keeper! :thumbsup:

    Yeah, when you find a bandmate (or two) that you gel with, life is better.

  15. Had a fun gig last night at Crab n Jacks (near White Lake) in Langlade County last night. Decent crowd all night and people were dancing and having fun.

    We will be playing at the Juice Box in Green Bay next Saturday from 8pm to Midnight. That's a new venue for us so I'm looking forward to checking it out.

    Duke;
    I’m not much of an effects guy either. I’m selling all of my pedals except a TC Electronic Sub-n-Up and a Korg tuner. Will have my Boss pedal board case for sale soon. Can’t wait to get rid of the unnecessary clutter.
    If we all stay smart and healthy we can get out and play soon (or somewhat soon).
     
  18. I'd be interested in your review.


    I have never had a pedal, just my wireless and a pedal tuner which I love for the simple mute function. I always say I'd like a simple small pedal board for ease of setup but shudder at the cost for even something simple.
