Fall 2013

Oct 13 - Hello everyone! It's been a long summer, we're back, haven't left actually. Working on dates for November and on into 2014. We'll be playing our debut show at Opa! on S. Lamar on Oct. 19. That will be a quiet acoustic duo show. We also want to extend a thanks to the recent clubs and venues that we've been playing, including the Gnarly Gar in Point Venture, TX, Moon River in Spicewood, a couple fun TB Open Stage nights at Poodle Dog, and Jim and Tinker's annual Virgo Gathering on Pitter Pat Lane. We had a great time doing that show and were happy to share the stage with other Austin notables David Grissom and Deane Rene. Thanks also to Robert Carter for joining us on bass this last year, we hope he'll be rejoining us soon. Also to our longtime drummer Jason Toll, let's keep on rockin'!! See ya at the gigs!!

Looking for a rhythm section

..ok so our drummer has informed us that he's moving on to do other things, which came as a bit of a shock, but that's just the way it is when you play music, as any musicians know.. so now we're looking for a new drummer or drummers who can fill in the gap.. we're also auditioning any bassists who are interested in playing with us.. we generally play several times a month, for pay and for no pay (although we prefer the pay), we do shows, benefits, events, etc.. plus t.v. and radio things pretty regularly, whenever they come up.. sooo, for any readers of this rather obscure blog who are players or know players who might be interested, our web addresses are - - - - - or please let us know at - - thanks..

..hola.. so last night we did the 2nd anniversary open mic at Down Under Deli in Spicewood, TX hosted by our friend Bob Sarnataro ..the stage was also graced with plenty of other very talented musicians, including Chella Kay and Danny Fast Fingers ...this past week we also went to the last open mic at what will soon be the former Skinnys Ballroom, unfortunately, coolish kinda place we thought, hosted by Amelia Card, it was good while it lasted..

yes yesterday we did an impromptu show at Full English in South Austin, was really more or less a practice which we decided to do over there instead of the boring apartment, plus they have a really good crêpe there.. anyway the show was good, some folks came out and we had a good time.. then today we went and did some recording at our friend Dave Patterson's Buda Treehouse Recording Studios ..we were also joined by Jim Spector and A.J. Montrose, both of which have spent time on stage with us in the past, and whom we thoroughly enjoyed playing with again today ..the Poodies show last Friday night was fun, quite a few folks came out and made it more fun.. and the Juniors show the night before that was pretty darn good.. and speaking of Poodies and Juniors, I'm not exactly sure which has the better burger but I can tell you they're both fantastic.. Poodies, I believe, has a reputation for having a great burger, I'm not sure if such is the case with Juniors, but I believe it may rival the Poodies burger ..
