If I go to enough rummage sales (only those that serve real rum)
and point meself in the right direction, I may make it.


Better yet- I think I'll strap a snow shovel to me back and the first person who asks "Hey, whats that thing for?"-

I'll know I'm close.

A Magical Night Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

For over 20 years of my life I have dreamed of having these guys, who now call themselves The Lost Dogs, come to New Orleans.
Now, 20 years ago I never dreamed I'd be opening up for Terry Taylor, or Mike Roe. Even Derri. You know?
Never dreamed it.
Sometime around 7 we did a sound check.
The Dogs had already had theirs.
We only did one song.
Now by this time there's a bunch of people sitting around talking and someone asked why we only did one song because they'd apparently thought the thing was starting.
So I just went up and got the guitar and tried to get my friend Mark to come up and play a Beatles song with me. He wouldn't but I still sat there on the amp and played it. Indest wouldn't come up at this point. We weren't starting until 7:30 and that's that.
So, after some encouraging from a mister Mike Roe I got the sound guy to put the sound on and I did REM's The One I Love.
The people seem to like it. Great.
Now Indest starts yellin out requests and he says Clementine.The Elliott Smith song. So I do a version of that. And it feels good. And the sound man's good. And the people are happy. And it's a magical night.
It's 7:23. There's time for one more.
So I do You Never Know Someone. It felt good. The groove felt good.
Now it's time for the Mike and Ed show. Now I realize that I'm gonna be doing the second song, Can You Love Me and I"m gonna need some lubrication so I head to the bar to get a Coke. Meanwhile Indest is taunting me. Asking me if i'm gonna join them or whatever.
My friend Monty was on drums. I've known Monty LeBlanc half my life. I worked my first job with Monty. And now he's drumming with me.
We started out with Pentecostal Pamela Lee. Mike Likes those blondes you know?
No, it's a great song and I love playing it on the bass. And I love doing the background vocals. And it's a song that always has a great groove and you can sort of warm up with cause most of the time you just nail it. It's just fun to play.
Then we did Can You Love Me which I'm still geting used to playing the bass and singing at the same time. But Indest doesn't play the nadaed bass so I've gotta do it. I think I'm liking it more though. Anyway we jammed it down and it was tight. I'd feel more comfortable doing this song if I had some background vocals but Indest doesn't do backgroud vocals do you Indest?
Next we do You Think You're Pretty Now, which is a Michael Stanley Indest classic. A beautiful song of heartache written by Mike about my ex-wife after it was found out that she commited adultery. Now this is a beautiful song right. And all of a sudden the ducking bass is going haywire.
I'm hitting notes and it sounds like there's a beehive in the amp. Now it did this in the sound check with my bass, so I, thinking it was the bass, asked Derri if I could play his Fender Mustang. So that's the bass I was playing. So now I know it's the chord. There's bit of confusion as I try to continue to sing the background vocal and plug in the bass with the wire that Cliff, the sound guy, gave me. I knew I had to get it before the build up. The bridge came and we crossed it without a hitch and the rest of the set went flawless.
We did Something's Gotta Turn Around next.
Now I'll tell you a little story about this song. Whe me and Mike were living on the streets and playing our guitars for change he would say do Something's Gotta Turn Around.
Well I'm sick of doing that song. And it's mostly because just me singing the song doesn't cut it for me. I need the backgroud vocals on a song like that. So I told him to do it I'm sick of the ducking thing.
And so he did it and I just started doing the background vocal with him and the song is better now because there are vital parts that are heard.
And Mike does a great jod singing and playing it.
So we did that and ended with Mike's One Of Them which I absolutely love playing and singing the bgv's on. It's a fun one. And it was tight.
Next the Dogs came up.
And I can't tell you a play by play cause I was manning the product table and running back and forth from there to just outside the door where the friends that I invited were. Sitting at the tables. They had come late. And they're not Dogs fans. They came out to see me and Mike and Monty. And they only got to see us do 2 songs.
Anyway I sold a few Dogs cds and yes I do have my copy of The Lost Cabin And The Mystery Trees.
Haven't listened to it yet but I can tell you they did a few from it.
Free Drinks And A Dream
No Room For Us? I think it's called? So beautiful.
If You Want To
Only One Bum In Carona Del Mar, which is on the new one.
And that's it. Check with Indest for the rest.
I gave Mike Roe the loot.
Indest said the dogs didn't want to go anywhere after. Cause we were supposed to go somewhere to eat or something.
Well he got my friend Mark to bring me home and he went to eat with them anyway. Thanx Mike.
And thanx for making a magical night happen.

It was a great show, i was never as nervous playing a gig before.

Songs I remember from their set. Wild Ride, Vegas Story, Rocky Mountain Mines,
No Room For Us (WOW!), That's Where Jesus Is (new), Devil's Elbos (new),
Blessing In Disguise, Crushing Hand. That is all I remember now.

The new CD is AWESOME!! It reminded me at first of John Wayne but then it
changed. It is fantastic.

It was kinda weird Hindalong did not have a kit, he wore a snare drum around
his neck and walked around and played. jk he is back there i will find some more pics. Indie Hindie had a cool little drum set.


We had a good turn out, it was crowded some people hung outside.

The Dogs seemed to be happy with everything. I won't promote another gig like that again for a while but by next year I should be ready again Smile

Theoleo my little friend..
Can't wait til you come back down here man.
Seems the only time I get drunk on rum I'm at Mike's house.
Anyway you're funny.
Sounds like you've been nipping at it already though.
Well there's13 minutes left in it so I'll tell you happy 4th.
