    First big brawl at a gig......

    Holy shit! I’ll upload pictures tomorrow because I can’t do it from my phone. Didn’t get any of the brawl but a few of the aftermath. Broken glasses, broken tables.....shit everywhere.

  3. freebyrd 69 CAT day

    I'm 50 and I've had at least one cat most of my life going back to childhood. I like dogs well enough, but, with my busy life, too much work. Anyway, I had to put my last cat down a few months before I moved after my divorce. I met my fiancé, and her daughter (8 at the time, 12 now) was allergic...

    Got a chance to play a great gig over Labor Day weekend this year. What a blast. 40' pontoon boat on an inland chain of lakes (Portage, Strawberry, Zukey for all of the Michigan peeps). Double decker, and we decided to put the drummer and bass player on the top deck. Boats, alcohol, and rock and...

    Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Chris Stapleton cover......

    So I can't find the thread, but another member started one about this particular song. We thought it would be a great one for us to cover, but weren't sure how well known the song was. As soon as I announced we were doing a song that just dropped by these guys, a few people screamed "is it...

    Weight gain and significant other.....

    So this turned into a huge debate a week or so ago with a group of people that we were out with. I thought you all might get a kick out of the topic. The conversation went along these lines...... One of the guys in the group has a female cousin, and they are close (not Kentucky close, just in a...

    A buddy did some video for our band

    And it came out GREAT! Say what you want about Facebook, but it has it's great points too. One day I was on there, and they have that "people you may know" line. Well, I saw a guy on there that I knew from my childhood, and hadn't seen since I was probably 10 or 12 years old. He was in a band...

    We have had the most miserable spring/early summer possible. In the whole month of May, there were only 2 times where we had 2 consecutive days without rain. June has been pretty much the same. We had 3 gigs scheduled 3 days in a row, this past Thurs., Fri., and tonight, all outdoors. Thursday...

    Anybody see the Elton John (Rocketman) movie yet?

    If so, what did you think? I enjoyed Bohemian, despite the critics knocks and being meh on Queen as a band. I don't watch these expecting a "documentary", just entertainment. It looks good to me, but trailers can make anything look good. LOL. Opinions?
