Hello fans of Band 6,
We did it! Band 6 played Karl's Klipper last night, Saturday, June 27, 2009, and if we do say so ourselves, it was a roaring success! First and foremost, the show was the debut of our new guitar player Charlie Hallowell, who wowed the crowds with his searing solos and adept rhythmic attack (and his singing on I Saw Her Standing There).
Not that the rest of us were chopped liver! Cathy was in her usual fine vocal form, Mike played slide guitar like his life depended on it, Guy did a masterful job on keys and vocals, and T-Bone and Dickie held down the rhythm section like nobody's business.
The song which we debuted last night was End Of The Line (Traveling Wilburys). Songs which we brought back after extended hiatus included The Way (Fastball), A Change Will Do You Good (Sheryl Crow), and Born On The Bayou (Creedence Clearwater Revival).
We saw many friends last night: the Long Island crowd really surprised us with their presence; Mom Reina stayed for two whole sets (anything to see her 3 sons); and even when the dining room wound down to Roni, Patty, and T-Bone's 2 long-suffering S.I. friends, we played, they danced, and it could have gone on longer! (but we was tired).
Next? Back to Karl's in the next few months; a Rockville Centre L.I. gig at a joint called Reflections; Rhythms Of The Night in Manville (a perennial favorite) in October; and quite possibly a return to the Sidewalk Cafe in Manhattan NYC!! Watch this space for updates.
IF YOU WERE THERE ON SATURDAY 6/27: post us your comments, observations, requests, wish lists, unsolicited advice, etc and so on. Even if you wasn't there, comment anyway!
