I might go crazy

| Posted on in music

I gave my sister my camera and told her to take pictures of our show last night. She came up to me about two hours in and told me the batteries were dead. I figured I didn’t get them charged well enough and gave her some alkaline batteries to use. I found out after the […]

Holy cow, folks…these guys are solid. Great show tonight at Bobby T’s. Guess who showed up. Blaine Younger. I haven’t seen him in quite a while. Fantastic singer/songwriter. I’ll open for him any day. It just might happen. Look for something soon. Thanks for buying the big beers for me. Tyler too. Biggest show in […]

In my ears, man

Holy damn.. Fantastic show, Pete. I had my doubts coming in, but now you can bet that if ever I’m not playing and the Jared Pete Gile band is, that’s where I’ll be. I had grandeous plans coming in about leaving after the JPG band and No Justice. I didn’t like Jason Boland. I’ve never […]

I just got done doing a radio interview with Blondy from 92 JAMZ in Colby. It was an hour long and I doubt that much more than about three minutes will make it on, but you can look forward to excerpts being posted here on the site. She let me plug the Page show as […]

Outdrank by Trevor’s girlfriend

So I guess Trevor tells me that on a per-person basis, his girlfriend out-drank my band at our two last respective shows. I’m sure she loves us spreading that around. Hey, Shana. I’ve been mixing down the minidisc recording from Colby. Wow. Look for some stuff available for download soon.

After hours

Too loud

The MMB show last night–you guessed it–rocked balls. I was joking with the PWAC crew before the show about how I was going to see the prophet. I was going to go bearing gifts, probably something other than frankincense or myrrh. “What does Traffas have to confess for? Drinking and driving?” –Chris Day, PWAC employee […]

Well we’ve come a long ways in three weeks. Three weeks ago, I’d never heard of Doc Nelson or Michael Kisner. Two weeks ago, they had both been given 60 songs to learn in less than a week. A week ago, we had played an absolutely incredible show at Big Dogg’s in Junction City, KS, […]

Well I got through it. Mike’s Sports Bar in Medicine Lodge, the place where I had my CD release party for Coffee Grounds, is now a private club. I went in and instead of the family-oriented drunken atmosphere I was expecting, there were a bunch of fat guys with beards whom I’d never seen before. […]
