      Everything went really well. I didn't get the sound guy's name, but he did a really great job, I think the sound quality was the best we've ever had.

      Cowboy did a super job on the bass and it really bumped us up a level. Apparently rehearsing the night before the gig did a good job of getting us right on top of the material. Unfortunately, especially after not playing for a month, it also wiped out our finger tips. By the end of the night I was playing with 3 sets of band-aids on my finger tips. Kansas City was supposed to be the next to last song in the second set, but we had to skip it because I just couldn't play it.

      We decided we'd get together again a week from the next Monday, and give our fingers a chance to recover.


      Stay tuned,
