Hey Kimo, it wont let us Canadians look it says its available only to users within the United States.

Hey Kimo, sorry to here that a good friend of yours MR Paul Soderdahl passed away.  I can only wish that I could see old age,  107  now that's a great life.
I wish i was close by so i could raise a glass  with you, and give a cheer to such a man.

I am writing this here on the forum because Kimo has spoken here fondly of this man, and because i wanted to...LOL

God speed my friend

and to our friend KIMO, my condolences,  no matter what the age its stll hard losing a good friend.

Happy Birthday Rockette.

Thanks a lot guys,  man oh man  we are heading soon to our 4th gig in 2 days.  voice going, fingers hurt so bad i could cry, lol  but wow what a great weekend.
we have been playing to packed bars every gig. this is wicked.  the crowds have been with us and really enjoying St paddy's weekend .   one bar owner gave us a $200 tip(that was great)  and two guys fr a very popular band who have been playing now for 25 yrs popped in to hear us, and told us we were great.  they stayed for 2 sets.  i am  now a very happy man...LOL

Once again Happy St Paddy's week  LOL

Well, last night my band did a hour show,  LIVE on a local radio station. talk about nerves. LOL
It was great and we felt we played one of our best show ever, we have had about 3o phone calls and 20 text and a dozen Facebook messages saying that people really enjoined it. so that's a great thing for us.  must say it was nerve racking going live, you really had to bring Ur A game. and couldn't swear  lol.   We are getting a copy, so i will try and share here on the forum. 

On another note Happy st paddy's weekend, we are busy playing 4 gigs in 2 days.  sure to be a great time.
Hope u all have a great one.  and watch out for the green beer...LMAO

At our AHL Ice cap game this weekend they had a tribute to Tom.  They played a few of his tunes,  and at the end they played the good old hockey game.  they  asked people to sing along.  man it was loud, quite the tribute.

Why are we so hard on ourselves as musiciansÉ
I know there are a few people reading in this Forum, not a lot posting anymore . thats cool.
Thought i`d ramble on a bit here and there...LOL

Last weekend my band finished a night on Sat, we had a great crowd, but couldn't really get them to interact with our  show . we always try to get the folks singing along or talking with us, always have a laugh.  well sat night was hell for me. our guitar player was being a tool(diva)..LOL  and My mandolin pickup had a loose wire that had to be fixed on stage, then the battery went dead in the next set, our lead singer lost his voice and he sings 70 % of the tunes. then our PA systems power board shutdown, we had to use  one that was in the bar.  so for me it was a night fr hell..LOL
The bar owner paid us. i wanted to give it back..LOL  and we packed our gear in silence..LOL

Monday rolls around and i get a call fr the bar owner, stating that she wants us back again on a monthly bases, and said another club owner was in her bar and wants me to call him. we ended up getting 2 monthly gigs out of a gig that i thought we facked big time.  so i call up a friend who was at the gig , a Friend who always tells me the truth. asked him how we did and he said it was one of our best shows.   
I`m at a loss for words..LOL
Maybe As musicians we are way to hard when it comes to ourselves.
That's my ramble...I need a blog...LMAO

Well whats the good of doing something that's funny and not sharing with Forum friends...LOL

Well sat night my band played in a restaurant/bar.  The setting was great, so we decided we all would sit down, because of some health issues i have i have trouble standing for the long hrs.  well now, the bar staff gave us 4 nice stools but warned us that they are not all that strong.  everything was going great until, right in the middle of doing a lead break the damn stool broke with a loud crack and i fell against the wall and into my mando stand. I never missed a note and the singer held it together to finish the song. we finished and everyone was quite till our guitar player looked down and said,  firewood for sale. needless to say the whole bar busted out laughing and the jokes went right into the night.

Anyone else have a funny stage story?

Happy Birthday, hope it a great one.
