Rick's Rap - December 2009
We didn't get any query's from the note at Coffy's Music, and Bob didn't get a response from his email to Candy. I checked with Cowboy (the bass player in the Freestate Houserockers) and he said he'd be interested. I relayed this to Bob and he said yeah, let's try him out and see what we think.
Cowboy came up to Bob's with me and we ran through all the easy material. He had no sweat blending in and we actually sounded better on the bluesy stuff with him than we did with Donn.
The good news is he's a natural at the impromptu medley's that we're trying to work ourselves into. The bad news is we're just going to have to slog our way through developing a feel for the county and dead material with him. It looks like we may be ready to start looking for regular gigs in a couple of months.
The p.a. seems to be handling the bass just fine, so equipment wise we're set to go.
We took 2 weeks off for the holidays, and plan to buckle down and start seriouly working on material after the new year.
