I picked up another gig, this time backing Brian Myers.
Brian is the musical director from the theater show that I played last summer (Chess the Musical).
We will be playing mostly originals at Pridefest June 10th 9:00 - 10:00pm at the MGAC stage (also know as the Children's Stage on the Summerfest grounds).
Brian Myers and his Homeland Band
( . . . a New Orleans-stained rhythm & blues, a lot of the pianism is informed by Dr. John, etc, and I use a lot of "jazz" harmonies a la Steely Dan. . .)


Tell your friends!
Wear a rainbow and have some fun!!!!! :-)

Hey Pauldo!
Have fun on the gig!

Keep it low and stay outta treble!

Well - ma nature didn't cooperate so much. 2 days earlier it was 96 degrees - last night 49 degrees misty drizzle all night.

Still had a blast and my Distillate didn't see to mind the moisture so much. Thankfully the stage had their own amp (GK800RB and an Edan 4 x 10 cab)so I didn't need to worry about soaking my speaker cones. Those that were there enjoyed it - I had fun, my wife said we sounded good AND I got invited to the recording studio!!

p.s. it really was VERY misty/ drizzly/ wet and my bass did get moist and clammy - I've had it out of the case today - is there anything I should look for/ do to ward off potential damage?

Yep, fresh air is the best thing.

That's a nice bass.

November 5th I'll be joing the Milwaukee Police Concert and Jazz Bands for their annual show at the historic Pabst Theater.

One of the songs that the jazz band is covering is the theme from I Love Lucy, the song real smokes - it is one of those that is alot more fun to play than to listen to - but it quickly morphs into an ear worm and I find my self singing it at random moments throughout the day - people at work think I'm strange. . . . :-\

That time of year again. Sun Machine is playing along with Dexter Bracket (I play in both). Sun Machine's practices were actually in a garage - there is something about palying in a garage that feels so right! :-D

Wayne-o-ween

I also am starting rehearsals for the annual Milwaukee Police Band (the country's oldest Police Band!)show at the historic Pabst Theater on November 3rd. This is a FREE show - it is mostly a Police event but the public is welcome to come. I am playing in the concert band and the jazz band - one of our songs is a James Taylor Medley - I'll be doing my best Jimmy Johnson impersonation with a 4-string Distillate. :-D

Playing with the Milwaukee Police Concert and Jazz Bands (America's Oldest Police Band) at the historic Pabst Theater in Milwaukee.

Saturday November 9th; it's a free show opened to the public starts at 7:30. It is a Police event and Captain Flynn gets up and speaks, but it really is about the music. There is alot of 5-0 in the audience so smoke your weed in the parking lot before coming in! :-D

A home recorded video of Hallelujah from the concert.
Really good vocal performance; specially around 2:50.
