It was a week of Larry B. in Florida and Rich away in the rat race so it was a paired down Deadstein  experience.  It was paired up by the freaky oboe sounds we had for a moment or two and Scott's friend Howie, who showed up for the Baby Blue to the end.   In addition, the new mixer made it's debut and wasn't any worse than what we had before and I think it was better.   We had 5 mics going at least which is good and it didn't feedback once but it wasn't oprresively loud either and didn't have too much more it could go.  I think it was loud enough and had a bit more stable power than the old setup.

For the record everyone owes me $30 for the mixer.  Paid in full are Larry B, Dave S. and  Johnny.  Scott owes me $10 and Rich, Andy and Kevin owe me $30 each.  Scott was talking buying his own relatively good mic and everyone at this point has Shure SM58's so Scott should probably get one of those, with a mic clip, estimated Street price of $99.00.  Finally, Johnny also purchase 2 x 25' XLR-XLR mic cables for this week so I hope everyone knows and appreciates that effort.

Kevin and Johnny had their typical tirade at the beginning of the night.  Dave came in with a little nosh from Bens and that sustained us food wise throughout the night.  No additional food was ordered which enabled us to finish the setlist plus a few more songs.  We have probably done that more in the 2000s than we did in the 1900s.  Is that the way you say that?  Actually we didn't do the Rooster on the set list but the additional other songs made up for it, Believe it or Not.

The music was pretty good.  Kevin and Dave are struggling to give me some of that "Zen-Kabobby" that I am seeking and I know it's chore for them and it's probably not in their hearts but I do appreciate the effort.  The music was more open this week, but we also had two fewer people.  The oboe, like a good fish oil, really doesn't clog the arteries so that was a non-factor. 

I was pretty well setup with my setup, using the ART SGX effect and the accompanying surfboard on new strings and everything was still warm from my jam at Scott's over the weeked.  Andy brought in his surfboard.  The room was cleaned quite a bit and rewired so many of the redundant and unused wires were picked up and placed down somewhere.  I brought in another set of mics to mix in the board for more of a soundboard but never implemented them.  We can now do more of that without disturbing Kevin's taping experience.  We can also hhok up Dave's headphone thing better.

Howie did a great job on singing the Baby Blue and Truckin and his leads were also really good.   It was nice.  It was freezing out for the fist time all season.  We finished about 15 minutes late as we played additional songs.  After it all, Johnny and I went to Bayard Street for some good spare ribs and mediocre other stuff, thus resulting in the late post. 

Till next Thursday we we'll all be back, I think.

just for the record, My friend's name is Ken, Not Howie..... Those scotty scary's really have their impact huh??? Great night of jamming. Thanks to the gind for picking up the mixer, and to johnny for the cables. I am going to pick up a mic, a music stand,and whatever else looks good as I walk into manny's. Thanks to dave for sharing his stand with me. He's the kindest. I'm hoping carlos listened to me and emptied the growing amount of water in the bucket leaking from the steam pipe above dave. Kev should be cast-less by thursdays jam. He was a real trooper during his 8 -10 week ordeal. I'm hoping he and johnny have straightend out their never ending differences. Heres to a new beginning. Just returned home from an afternoon of highschool basketball at MSG with Matt & Mollie and yes the Freakster. He was giving the garden fans a little bit of what the fans at yankee stadium come to see. See ya Thursday

Let me aplogize to Ken for misrepresenting him. The wrong name still doesn't discount from his quality play that he gave us. Watch out Manny's, Scott is on the loose.

I just heard from our friend who will be rowing his boat a shore with his new project the Larry Keel Experience. This bluegrass band that Michael manages will be playing in NYC on Thursday, January 27 at Baby Juipiter's, 170 Orchard Street starting at 11:00 pm. The next night they will be playing at another place, which I forgot to write down, located at 442 Amersterdamn Ave, somewhere in the 80s starting at 10:00. Finally, on Saturday night, the 29th, they will be playing at Mexicali Blues in Teaneck, NJ starting at about 9:00. First Act only.

Michael says this bluegrass band is loaded with impressive talent that we would all appreciate. Larry Keel has won the Teluride guitar flatpick championship twice in the early 1990's. This is their first New York Roadtrip at the helm of the Michael Row Your Boat A Shore and he is seeking some active participation so try to go see them somewhere, tell your friends and others and get yourself to the Larry Keel Experience. For more information check out http://www.LarryKeel.com.

Since Michael is going to be producing those gigs mentioned above he wants to see if he could hear us before them preferable on Wed the 26th, or if he has to, Tuesday the 25th. Let plan our calendar this week when we jam. He said he would love to get the Larry Keel Experience to hear us and hang with us. Freaks from a far with Freaks from a far.

What's with the F Weiner? I didn't see him write F Trister. By the way Brian Stormwind and his wife Joanie just had another baby girl, Lydia. His little guys still swim despite years of abuse.

I checked out the Larry Keel Home Page. It did not make any reference to the gigs to be played in the NYC Metropolitan area. I am looking forward to seeing the band. If Michael is reading this post, please advise the Larry Keel webmaster to update the page and list the NYC dates and venues. I'm telling my friends about the band.
