Now come on folks, not all of our fans are starting to worry about falls in the home. We had a great mix of folks in The Pour House last night. People in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s hung all the way to the end (approachin’ 2am) as The OakTeam and The HBO laid down the law about whether Rock n’ Roll still had a pulse. I seen them asses shakin’! It’s obvious that the new record has a life force of it’s own that can inject some serious movement in folks of all ages. I joked that the “old” folks left early, but I wasn’t talking about age. It was more to comment on how alive music can make you feel and how it can, if done right, add a few years to the end of your life. I love being on stage cause it is the one time during that day that I am NOT feeling my age, and that is what I guess my music boils down to. You gotta lose yourself sometimes and forget about the weight of the world being on your shoulders. That’s what I/we TRY to do with it anyway. It seemed to be working last night at our “National Champions” CD release party. The rain and the basketball kept a few people at home thus keeping us from meeting our club enforced “quota” but despite that bit of ugliness the sound coming off of the stage was as good as it gets. We played great and the new songs are really starting to come together live. I know I felt younger for it. Certainly, younger than if I would have stayed home and sat on the couch watching basketball and drinking. Many thanks to those who came and made our night so much fun.
Off to Texas!
