A Weekend of Rock

Monday, July 27th, 2009

We had a fun weekend bringing our special blend of musical entertainment to our friends at Rawiga on Friday and the Sly Fox on Saturday.  Highlights included:

  • An impromptu lyrical modification to Sugar Ray’s “Fly”, which resulted in a version we like to call “Pie
  • Our Rawiga steward Reggie (and his trusty assistants) helping out with our gear, keeping us hydrated, sending pizzas, and giving us a star on the Rawiga Pool Deck of Fame
  • Dave and Tyler getting us fantastical stage sound at the Sly Fox
  • Charley trying out his new “gig sunglasses
  • An entire table of Pennsylvanians who will no doubt make the trek to see us again and again

We’ll be getting some pics and such posted in the next few days.  Meanwhile, you can prepare to see us this Friday night at Slim and Chubby’s in Strongsville.  After that we’ll be on vacation for a couple weeks until we return in mid-August.

Check back for updates!

A Little Damp

Before the Rain

We had a fine couple of gigs last weekend, with some added excitement from the weather.

You’ll note that in the picture above we’re performing at the Winking Lizard while mostly enclosed in a plastic tent (much like ‘bubbleboy’, only not as cute).  That was a good thing. And for most of the night we enjoyed cool, breezy summer weather.  At about9:30 or so, though, some ominous clouds started to move in, and a downpour hit suddenly, drenching everything.  It was a little windy, so rain was flying around inside the tent.  POP! A breaker tripped!  So the gig was ended kind of unceremoniously.  Hopefully we’ll enjoy slightly less moisture next time we play at the Bedford Winking Lizard on Friday August 21st.

On Saturday we returned to the Greenville Inn to rock Chagrin Falls.  The place was packed with party action, and we delivered some Moo mojo to keep everybody moving all night long.  Can you guess what happened at the end of the evening as we were about to pack up our gear and load out?

Yes, it rained like a monkeyhumper.  At least we had been inside all night long.  In any case we got pretty damp (again) while packing up our gear.  But nothing that cranking the heater and stopping for 2:30 AM beef jerky couldn’t fix. By the way, a word to the Chagrin Falls BP Station: stock up on Fritos before the next time we’re there, or Charley may have a meltdown – and he’s Scotty’s ride, so we don’t want that.

We’ll be playing a private party on Friday this week, but on Saturday you can catch up with us at the Sly Fox in North Olmsted.  We really enjoy the stage and the sound system there, and we’d love to get some people out to enjoy it with us so come one, come all!  We hope to see you there.
