Hey Guys,

A band I've been subbing for over the past 20 years is playing a gig at Fat Boy Bill's in Milford Mass on August 25th. I'm not able to help, and his primary and other sub can't as well.

I figure anybody my age or so should be able to do it cold, as I usually do it.

Basic Fare: Soul-man, Last Night, Domino, Brick House, Vehicle, But It's Alright, and many more like them. Old Time Rock and Roll, Rockin' at Midnight, and more and more. Usually there's a trumpet, maybe not on this one so you might be alone, which is usually more cool by me. I usually solo on 75% of the tunes.

If anyone's in this neck of the woods and think they can handle it, let me know by replying or PMing me. It's a fun gig.

Here's the link to their site. (They have one picture with me on it!)

So, I guess that's your story and your sticking to it? ;)

I say the same thing about the band I play with.

But I tell the truth! The trumpet player's old enough to be my father. Everyone else in the band is firmly entrenched in their 50s.

Thanks Jim, I had a feeling I'd get someone here to help out. It looks like we have a winner.:D


Hey, if anyone in the Boston area has a gig slot to fill. They should do what I just did. There must be a hundred of us in this area.

I have a couple of nights off next month. Anything?

I thought about it but I'm suppose to go away that weekend with my wife and.........:shock:
That's when I'm coming home from Colorado Springs. They thought that since I wasn't playing with the hoodoos, I was free.

Hey, any gigs in Colorado Springs available in a few weeks?
