Jay Breaks Gear. Sort of.

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

Everyone in Skinny Moo pulls their fair share of gear around.  Charley and Scotty haul their drums and keyboards along with the big PA speakers and all of the cables.  Crow brings the mixing board and the sub-woofers.  Jeff drags his (huge) Marshall amps, guitars, and the communal microphone stands.  Jay brings his microphone and the monitor speakers.

The monitors are old Yamaha speakers that saw a previous life as the main speakers for the Foonspeeders and Thomas Reed Smith (two local, original groups).  The speakers have been around the block.

Jay doesn’t really like the speakers – not because they don’t sound good, or because they are fragile, or because they blew out the rear window of his new Durango – he doesn’t like them because they are heavy.  Much like Scotty’s wife isn’t fond  of his keyboard bench because any time she tries to pick it up the scissoring legs invariably manage to crush her fingers, Jay has an aversion to these pieces of gear.  Even so, he dutifully soldiers on and brings them to gigs.

With that said, he brought them to the Greenville on the 21st.  We gave it our all, and at the end of the night, in the wee hours of Sunday morning, we shuffled outside to load all the gear that we had brought with us.  At some point someone noticed that the handle of one of the monitor speakers had just ripped right out of the speaker cabinet.  Whoever it was decided that it would be pretty entertaining to not tell Jay and see what happened when he was about to load this most-hated speaker into his truck.

Late-night hilarity ensued (WARNING: probably not funny unless you play in a band with a lead singer who hates carrying heavy monitors at 2:30 in the morning).

YES! We will be playing at Slim & Chubbys on Friday, June 20th

Friday, June 20th, 2008

We have been notified by several people that the Slim & Chubbys website says the “Rock Shop” will be playing on Friday 6/20 – this is an error on the S&C website. We have contacted the club and they will hopefully update the site. WE ASSURE YOU THAT SKINNY MOO WILL BE PERFORMING AT SLIM & CHUBBYS ON FRIDAY, JUNE 20TH. Hope to see you there!

Get a Double Scoop of the Moo!

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

The weekend of June 20th gives current and would be “moopies” on both sides of the lake to get your Skinny Moo fix on.  With a mechanical arm* and an arsenal of new music, Jeff 2.0 leads the moops into STRONGSVILLE where we’ll debut at SLIM & CHUBBYS!!  It’ll be a WEST-SI-EED extravaganza complete with PYROTECHNICS** and a giant 30′ prosthetic finger ON STAGE!!***

If that doesn’t get your “moove” on, we’re back at the world famous – but new and improved Greenville Inn in CHAGRIN FALLS (east SIDE!, EAST side!), Saturday, June 21st.  The outdoor patio is now complete so SMOKE UP JOHNNY!  And you can bring your beverage with you! Hmmm.. sad to think that new marketing for Bars is, “…plus, we feature an outdoor patio where you and SMOKE & DRINK…AT THE SAME TIME.  At anyrate, I digress.  Hope to see those who haven’t made it out in a while – YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

*Jeff does not really have a mechanical arm.

**there will not really be pyrotechnics.

***there will not really be a giant 30′ prosthetic finger ON STAGE.
