Back to Boston

It was a great weekend on the road in the beautiful State O' Maine, and now we are back in Boston for a soul-packed home stand! Down east in Bar Harbor we rocked Carmen Verandah's for two very hot, very groovin' nights. The band was uplifited by the hoots and hollers of the crowd, and constantly packed dance floor at Carmen's. If you are in Bar Harbor, check this place out - it rocks, and the food is good, too! And now we return home to hold court at the Terrace Lounge at the Marriott Copley Place. I dig this room, as it is both smooth as silk and funky at the same time! There's a dedicated local crowd that hangs there, plus lots of folks visiting the Hub. And, of course we come home to the Cantab Thursday where we re-charge the soul power system! See ya all then!

The triumphant return to Worcester

So it had been over a year since we played Worcester. We always love playing Worcester. Me and Diamond D spent some time here in our youths (hell, I was born two towns away) and we still have lots of friends and musician buddies in Central Mass. Since Union Blues closed last year, we had a lot of trouble finding a good venue for the band. But as soon as Gilreins opened up (or should I say re-opened, ten years later) I knew we'd found our Worcester home.
We had a great time on Friday the 13th at Gilreins, the band was smokin' and the crowd was into it. The staff was real nice, the club itself was beautifully detailed, and the sound system was stellar (thanks Jonathan!). I listen back to the recording and you can hear the intensity of the band and the excitement of the audience. D was so psyched to be back (he had played here years before with his previous bands, including the Rhythm Rockers) and a lot of folks turned out to see him tear up the room once again.
A few days after the gig, I got a call from the owner, who thanked me profusely for such a great night and inquired about our imminent return.
So it looks like we've found our new Central Mass headquarters! Looks for us again in October!

Fourth gig in four nights, and you guys still worked your asses off at Glenn's on Sunday. Most I've seen on the dance floor there in eleven years. It's great working with seasoned pros. Our next trip to Glenn's Restaurant and Cool Bar in Newburyport is September 30. We'll pack them in once again. Great food, huh?

Great Job!!!

Hey guys, great job this weekend! The band is really tight and it's really fun. I especially enjoyed the Toga Party. We should get more of those. Matter of fact, I think the Chicken Slacks should throw their own Toga Party & sell tix. Think about it. See Y'all Thursday. Enjoy the Peace.
