I’ve got a Sunday evening gig at a local bar. I haven’t played at this place before and know little about it other than someone was shot near it a couple months back. Not sure which drums I should take though I’m leaning toward the old Rogers.

I just got back from a benefit gig at a local bar. We didn’t do all that great (off night) but fortunately the crowd was gracious. I didn’t realize that the kit would be provided so I had a truck load of drums I didn’t need to bring. Fellow DFO member Rock Salad was also playing though I unfortunately didn’t get to see his group perform.

Downtown Dallas gig started weird with the venue asking us to do a five hour set instead of the agreed upon three hours, then we find out its a private party (and we had fans coming), then sound check changes from 6 to 7. Kinda flustered at start, but it got better as the private party ended.

Looks awesome. I don’t mind playing a extra hour or so it’s always fun playing. Killer stage it looks like.

I played a fun one today. It was a benefit event for some sort of dog rescue. Lots of people, kids, and dogs in costumes. Rep’d the Fullerton era Rogers. I’ve had the kit for a few years but had never played it out before am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. Also it was the first outing with the Yamaha Crosstown hardware and that stuff is just plain awesome. Snare was an early 70s Sonor D-454.

Played polkas today at a small town trunk-or-treat event. Great home brew and a tasty burger with German potato salad made it worth the chilly morning setup. The little kiddos can’t stop dancing to the happy music.
That’s so awesome. Every time we are setting up and someone ask what we play I always say polka as a joke lol

It is my opinion that if polka does not make you smile and bagpipes do not make you cry that perhaps you need to look in the mirror to see if you still have a reflection.
