Caroll's 41st Street - Carroll's Studio 3A without Trister, but Bayside Alan and Jay sat in for some good fun.
I got there a little late, but it didn't matter because the drum set was not even out of the box when we got there, so it was at least 8:00 until we were ready to go. Even with that said, we got lots of playing in. The set me up with a Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue, which to me should be as good as a Twin, especially in that room where a Deluxe has enough power. Unfortunately, there was no reverb working on the unit. I accepted it's use without making a fuss because the room, in and of itself has plenty of its own reverb. Rich had both an electronic Keyboard and a piano hooked up but it was unfortunate they they did charge us an additional $40 for the electronic keyboard. The PA was marginal at best but iut was fun and it felt good. Kev and Coffee-Boy really impressed on a few of the songs, sounding real tight and powerful.
I got there too late to eat in the city so I stopped at Paulie's pizza on the way home and it was a blessing. In the world, Sadam Hussein was turned over to the new Iraqi government to stand trial and made his first appearance in front of the world since being pulled out of a spider hole several months ago. The Yankees just completed a sweep of the Red Sox in a thrilling game in essence wining the division race in early July.
Till next Wednesday, 7/7/04 at 7:00 pm in Carroll's.
