Beautiful night, great crowd, rockin tunes. What else could you ask for? A great venue, you might say? Mission Accomplished! Firehouse delivered tonight! We had a blast.
What started as a simple sound check turned into a bit of engineering wizardry as we quickly realized Bob was in trouble. His bass drum kick was damaged, so we patched in some tunes from a smart phone to the mixer and solved the problem. How many musicians does it take to fix a drum pedal? THREE. Cut it out. We know. It was not easy. But we got it done!
A fresh connection for the spring to connect to the drum kick, and we were back in business. We hit some Grateful Dead, REM, Eagles, and Decemberists. Then we pulled out some Nancy Sinatra (“These Boots are Made for Walkin‘”), the Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show, and of course, “Phantom Limb” by The Shins.
Join us next Friday at DeSha’s to get your groove on. We’ll be inside, but the windows will be open! Look forward to seeing you there.
