The day started cloudy and overcast but looked promising as we took the stage for the 30th annual Collinsville Italian fest Friday. We played for a hour took a break & then the clouds really openned up! We took a break for about 40 minutes then we were back at it till four pm. We would like to thank Brandon Simms for having us out to perform at this awesome festival. It was good seeing alot of faces from back in the Kidz day. Art Sr. & Jr. from Swing City Music, it was great seeing you two & a quick stop off on the way home at the new store was really awesome to see. We'll be seeing alot more of you two in the future! Also a giant thank you to Curt & Marsha Seymour for having us perform at Curt's 60th! The support & friendship you two have shown us over the years is much appreciated and we send it right back at ya. Love you guys!
Thank you Everybody!
What a great weekend! I would like to thank everyone who came out. The Rendezvous was slammed and the the Party afterwards was ....well, my head is still aching! Thanks Todd & Nancy for having us to you awesome diggs!
Katy, Ty & I will be at Aggies Friday night, and then Just Katy & I will be at Unkorked Saturday night...just like old times, Ty had a prior commitment so we be there with bells on!
I got several emails about my last blog....sorry if I offended anyone...well no I'm not. Again, if you never answer my emails...we talk...EVER...meet up for lunch or get together with the old gang....ARE WE REALLY FRIENDS? That is what I was saying? Not ripping on anyone for playing farmville... LOL no hate intended...just saying go preach/post/game blogg to someone you see on a regular basis and not someone you dig up after 30 years and then never communicate with again. If this offends you ....wel
Ok, I love technology, I used to be really up on everything new. Now not so much. Just picked a Mac Plus Laptop the other day and I must say WOW! I have had an I Phone for a while and it is the the way to go...anyway, went to sync the iPhone to the mac and ...WHOOSH! All my contacts, number, email addresses...GONE WITH THE WIND! I do now know what i did, won't happen again, BUT, there are a lot of contacts I did not have written down any where, my bad. Soooo I'm going to see how many of my friends actually read this thing.
If I have had your email in the past, phone number...whatever, shoot me a email with the info again. And if you are ever getting ready to sync a iPhone to a mac for the first time, call me and I will tell you WHAT NOT TO DO !
SEE YOU AT RENDEZVOUS TOMORROW NIGHT!
Hot & Steamy!
That's what it was last Saturday night when Katy, Ty & I performed at uncorked. We had several equipment malfunctions...due to the heat,er yeah...the heat but we got it together. Thanks to everyone who came out that I had not seen in a while. Tyler and I will be rocking the rendezvous On the 19th without the songbird, will there be some other musical guests that show up??? We you just have to show up to find out!
Katy and I will be performing again at the UnCorked Wine Garden. Check My calender page for future dates. Hopefully Tyler will be thrown into the mix soon but its a very busy time for him being a senior and all.
I am also performing in a full band with band mates from the old Excalibur band. I will be posting those dates here as well. A very busy time indeed.
Hope to see you at a up coming show s
Snow, snow, go away!
It seems like our whole country is blanketed with snow! We have had snow on the ground since Jan 3rd...I think..well, at least it seems like it! I keep telling everyone that we have been lucky the last several years in the fact that we have not had much snow or ice but maybe a storm or two for the last several years. Now we are getting our " payback". Each day I try to get out more and more and resume normal activities but it is hard. this next week they say that we will have temps in the 50's so stay tuned!
Now that the superbowl is over everyone is talking about the BEP performance at halftime. I was asked by several people what I thought. Not being too familiar with the group, I quickly shot back, it was a live performance. I thought it sounded REAL as opposed to pre-recorded. I thought that by mid show they sounded pretty good. Fergie's mic was obviously off when she started, and what alot of people fail to realize is when you are dropped 150-200 feet from the ceiling this might obviously affect your performance. The fear of falling to your death might worry you a tad bit. So if you think they really sucked, you might ask yourself if you would have been at your peak if you had to start your work day the same way?
I think live is ALWAYS better than SYNC. Just my two cents!
Congrats Packers! Hope everyone got their fill of football for a while. Hearing a players strike is on the horizon. Hope not!
Have a great Holiday Season...
Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Looking forward to 2011, can't believe 2010 flew by so fast! Have a safe and happy Holiday and hope to see you soon.
Grandpa to be...
Yes it is true Katy & Travis are expecting their first child and we are ESTATIC with Joy! No, Katy and I are not cutting back on our playing just yet. Maybe after the first of the year but as of right now, we are still booking and performing Friday, Saturday and Sunday dates so check our schedule and come on out. Hey, did the Rams really beat New England the other night or was it just a dream? Talk to you soon!
Katy and I have really been enjoying all of the dates we have been playing lately. We have been working up a whole bunch of new songs that we have been performing and have more coming on board soon. Thanks to all that have been following us around. We really do enjoy seeing all of our friends in the audience....you make it happen. Bob & Katy
