Moose / Lucy’s / Hammys / New Songs

3 gigs for the band this weekend plus a Saturday practice. It was really busy for Cyndi, who played solo at the Red Zone on Thursday. We started at the Moose on Friday and had a good turnout. Last weekend at Countryview, we had a request for “Country Roads”. Gary knew the words and we pulled it off. We played it again at the Moose, so I guess we learned a new song!

We practiced Saturday afternoon and brought back “Your Love” by the Outfield and “Stuck in the Middle with You” by Steeler’s Wheel. Cyndi sings both of the songs, and they went over well both Saturday and Sunday. On the jokester side: Bob has said in the past that he would never play in a band with “clamp on” floodlights. I happen to own two and set them up to shine on his drums at practice. He didn’t notice them until I turned them on – the facial expression was priceless. We played at Lucy’s that night and had a good crowd. Bob had another incident when the band banner tape let go and the band sign fell on Bob’s head. You can see a picture on Facebook, and I guess we need stronger tape! Lucas Brookins was celebrating a birthday and sat-in for a few.

We finished off at Hammys on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and had a great crowd. I’ve been told it got a little loud which we feel bad about. It is a small room and we played some high-energy songs which are going to be louder. Gary always takes a listen out front when he’s not singing, and we ask people on break, especially musicians, if everything is balanced. It’s something we care about and don’t mind being told if it’s getting out of hand. But again, all said, it was a great crowd and a fun afternoon. Thanks to all who stopped out this weekend.

The band is off again this weekend, although the Gary McAdams Band is at Boxcars on Sunday afternoon with Tim Pogorelski on drums. This is the “reschedule” for the Sunday that was cancelled recently.

Bob has birthday coming up on March 2nd. Maybe we’ll get him some tape, floodlights, or a helmet!

Stop out Sunday at Boxcars for the GMB and we’ll see you there.
