Let me tell you about my weekend

Ok, it was a music weekend.

We went north to visit some relatives at their bowling alley.

One of the cousins is a musician, writes some songs, and is an excellent singer.

In the bar they have karaoke, and he will play some songs throughout the night. Last night I joined him and did two short sets. Now let me see if I remember what I played. Mostly the usual funny stuff.

Sitting around playing I did

Only Coffee House In Town
How Can I Miss You?

When we got set up to play through the system I played.

Hey Dad !!!
Color Of Your Eyes

Then later

Low Self Esteem
Bang My Bald Spot
and something else, I can't think of what at the moment

And tonight at Boheme I did mostly newer stuff. Not too well, but the songs are moving along

Only Coffee House In Town (nice with a few guitar bobbles)
Pine City Motel Blues (The middle section is still a mess, the rest went ok, but just ok)
Low Self Esteem (just cause I mentioned the benefit disc)
Nice Guys (messed up the final part, but it was ok)

There were two new guys this weekend. A guitar player and a guy with an old Micro-Moog.

They did some very cool, very tuneful stuff with great use of the synth. But more on them in the next post. Suffice it to say that they were the best thing I have seen there in some time. (and there has been a lot of great music lately)

  • The last night

    It was an astounding night. I got there about 9 and the place was packed. I managed to get the last available table to camp out at for the evening,…

  • Bohem

    I'm heading over the shortly. This is going to be hard. This has been my practice space for 7 1/2 years. I have seen amazing music, and for an open…
