    My next one is tomorrow’s regular Tuesday guitar gig at the Depot.
    I’m bringing my groovy new-to-me PRS McCarty 594 Singlecut.
    The romance is fresh, and I’m rrally enjoying this great sounding, and comfortable to play guitar.
    It has kicked my reissue 68’ LP Custom out of the nest!
    It sounds better, clearer, and stays in tune beautifully.
    I’ll bring my Chet, too.
    Looking forward to it!

    My next one is tomorrow night.
    Zilkerbilly, my friend Kelly’s band is playing Riley’s Tavern in Hunter.
    My dear friend Kevin is subbing for our regular drummer, Rick.
    Riley’s is smoky, loud and fun to play.
    Zilkerbilly is a very eclectic, rockin’ trio.
    I’ll bringing my EJ Strat, PRS, and Blues Cube Artist.
    The venue has a nice big PA.
    Should be fun, again!

    Private duo gig at a Yacht Club here in NC Friday night. . After the massive amount of rain and flooding we have had here in the region the last day or so I suspect the Yacht Club is now twice as big as it was just two days ago ! Maybe we will get paid 2X !

    These are fun gigs, Bandmate on Acoustic, me on one of the Benders. No set list per say, we play to the crowd, Country, Rock, Blues, we wing it with about 100 songs in our pocket . Who knows. If one of us knows a requested song , we play it, the other one figures it out real fast ! 3 chords and the truth ! :)

    Stripped back White Stripes-style band, doing a one-off blues gig, mostly old John Lee Hooker numbers. Going to be up-tempo and rough as hell.

    It's in a small room, maybe 60 people, with an electronic drumkit, so it won't be too loud. And I'm going to try it with my 50s Baja through . . . a Yamaha THR5, not mic'd up. Just going to see how that thing copes on full blast.

    Well, if it sounds weedy in the soundcheck I'll use something bigger. But I'm curious.

    Doing an early show at the Ivy Room in Albany, CA on Sunday. It's with my country band. Were debuting a couple of new original tunes. I think we did a good job on them so it will be nice to see how the audience reacts. We are also doing the Conway Twitty tune "Slowhand". It's kind of a cheesy tune, but me and the pedal player have that intro lick worked up real nice. I am stoked!

    As far as gear, I am bringing my Fender Deluxe Telecaster and Carr Rambler... and my music stand (but I am leaving it in my trunk!). I have been working hard to memorize all our tunes. Oddly enough our original tunes have been the hardest for me to memorize.

    Tuesday evening I sub with Fingerpistol at the Little Longhorn.
    I’ll use my avatar guitar and Cube.
    They draw a good, dancing crowd!
    Looking forward!

    Playing one of our regular wineries Saturday afternoon. Should be a good Valentine crowd. Singer and I will probably sing a lot of old standards together~anything but love, world on a string, ain't misbehaving....you get the idea.

    Should be clear and cool by Saturday, they'll have a fire going and we play in the loft where it's nice and toasty:)

    My next one is tomorrow night, my regular Friday bass gig.
    It will be the maiden voyage of my new-to-me Fender P bass.
    I have to get a set on TI flatwound strings for it.
    I’ll probably put a tortoise shell pickguard on it, eventually.
    I haven’t owned a stock P bass in many years.
    It has my preferred Jazz bass width neck, and rosewood fingerboard.
    This one was once owned by a late friend, and was gifted to me by another dear friend.
    I’m looking forward to playing it mañana!

    My Valentine's gig fell through, but I will be doing the country thing on Saturday night at The Rite Spot in San Francisco. It's a really fun gig, 2 sets so we wrap up at a reasonable hour. The venue is a nice looking place, and they serve up some nice Italian food.

    Planning to bring my Tele, my Mesa Boogie F30, and a couple pedals.

    I (amost) forgot my Valentine’s Day gig at the Atria with friends Lamar, Bob and Ruben.
    It’s only an hour, from 3:30-4:30PM, and it always flies by.
    We’re playing a bunch of cool Everly Brothers and 50s-60s classic pop tunes.
    I’m bringing my EJ Strat freshly strung with flatwounds and my Chet.
    I love playing with these guys.
    I’ve known them all forever, and we sound great together.
    Looking forward to it!

    Pretty simple one tonight; a 2 hour solo gig about 3 minutes from my front door. All I need is my Martin D-1, a Beta 57 and Bose L-1 Compact. I should be snoring by 11:00. :)

    I’m helping host a jam at Kyle City Hall tomorrow afternoon.
    It was fun last time!
    Last time I played bass about 90% of the time.
    I’ll bring both bass and guitar rigs.
    This time there will be a different PA provided, and apparently, a stage!
    I’ll bring my Chet, P bass, old Traynor Block 80 bass amp, and Cube 80XL.
    Hopefully we’ll have a few good jammers!

    On the 51RI P-Bass today 2:30pm to 5:30pm. "Irish eclectic", and loads of fun! This gig proved to me years ago that we could set up in VW Bug, if we had to! Lol This photo makes it looks spacious....WRONG! ;0)

    My next one is a house party/concert with friends Scott and Jenifer (thats right, 1 n) tomorrow evening.
    Both are great singer songwriters, and I'll do a few of my songs, too.
    Scott and Jen will play acoustics, and I’ll play my trusty avatar guitar.
    I love, and live for this kind of stuff!

    yes, the regular brewpub, tonight. Taking the BF Tremolux with 2X10 cab, otherwise, same, same. I've been doing this for ten years now, maybe one of these nights I'll get it right.

    Just got a text from one of the three lead singers; has a migraine may not make first set. Shoe must go on...

    I know it's probably a typo, but that one made me laugh a bit.

    And to quote the late Mr. Sullivan, I hope it will be a “really big shoe!”

    ...nope, as noted above, it's a reference to Ed Sullivan...you might have to have endured long enough on this planet to get the joke, but it's not much of one, I'm afraid...
