Those patios rocked!

Monday, August 20th, 2012

We want to thank all the folks who came out to the Winking Lizard on Friday and the Galaxy on Saturday. Both nights were fun, fantastic, and occasionally freaky (we’re talking to you, mister-dude-that-fell-in-BILL’s-lap-and-busted-his-chair). We enjoyed the hell out of the shows and hope you did, too.

We’re looking forward to our final summer concert series event at the Winking Lizard on September 21st, so we hope you’ll plan to be there. But before that, we’ve got a Greenville show (Saturday September 1) and a show at Johnny Malloy’s in Medina (Saturday September 8). Don’t miss Charley’s long-awaited return to the drum throne at the ‘Ville!

Meanwhile, we posted some pics from Saturday night for your viewing pleasure…

It’s called “dedication”, holmes

So on Friday afternoon the guys in the band went through a flurry of texting that started when Jayfro informed everyone that he had an issue with an infected, swollen elbow (now and forever known as the elbow of doom). We won’t go into the reason or reasons why his elbow was red, hot, and blown up like a party balloon. ¬†Anyway, as a result of the increasingly nasty goiter on his arm, he was headed to the ER in the afternoon.

Unfortunately we were scheduled to start playing at the Bedford Heights Winking Lizard at 5:30PM. With him being about an hour away (not including Friday rush hour traffic) and the uncertainty associated with emergency room wait times, it didn’t look like he would make it to the gig until pretty late, if at all.

But in an impressive display of dedication, Jay managed to elbow his way through triage without being admitted to the hospital. In record time he had new meds (not including Jågerbombs, at least not at that point in the evening) and was on the road to the gig. He got there in time for setup, and was the quintessential front-man as always.

And so, we present Jay the award for most-dedicated-band-member-while-afflicted-with-an-elbow-goiter. Congratulations Jayfro – you earned it!

The elbow of doom

Yes, this is very strange. We’ll explain later…


Back to the patio(s)!

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

We’re headed back to the Bedford Heights Winking Lizard patio this Friday afternoon! Come and check out Scotty’s amazing tan, and hear the thunderous drum-smashing of our special guest druminator Maury Haymore. Who knows what other surprises could be in store? Not even us!

On Saturday night we return to the Galaxy bar and grill in Wadsworth to fill their patio with raucous rock and rolly roll. We will be joined by special guest drum-smacker Steve Renko.

In other news, Charley is on the mend and should be back on the drum throne in a couple weeks! Yay!

We hope to see you this weekend!
