    -We had a good sized crowd in here and a good chunk of them stayed till around 1 or so. We started around 10 and ended at 1:30. For me, this was a very long day cause I’d been up since 6 AM due to my normal job-and we got hit really hard there this day-so I was already tired by the time I arrived at the show. I was also a little late due to work, but the other guys already had my gear there. I got all things I had to do set up and then we went up and started playing.

    -The 1st set, for me, wasn’t the best. Between setting up stuff and talking to people, I didn’t really have a chance to sit down and “unwind” a little before hitting the stage. I can always tell when I’m fatigued on stage cause it’s harder for me to hear myself and hit notes vocally. In fact, I took one song off the list cause I didn’t feel it I could hit the notes given my current condition. But you make due and we got thru it. I know I was tired cause I didn’t realize until 6 songs in that the camcorder wasn’t on-and we can’t play unless we’re being filmed (HA!). I also have to start writing into my set list when I have to change back into our regular tuning. Starting a song-that’s written in Eb tuning-while your low E string is tuned down to Db-is not good :).

    -Doc brought in some new button designs he made this night.
    These buttons are only available at our shows and I’m pretty sure they’re bound to offend somebody! 🙂 Come to a show & check them out if you get the chance. We have our CD samplers at every show and we only had 2-3 left after this night-awesome!

    -After a break, we started our 2nd set and I feel overall it went much better-at least with me. We had a bunch of people here that wanted some heavier stuff so we hit them with it! As you can see by the set list, we also received some requests to repeat certain songs-so we did. If a song is requested and we know it, we’ll do it. If we don’t know the song-we’ll butcher it (HA!).One thing that was kinda funny-this one girl left cause she wanted us to play an 80’s tune that wasn’t cheesy-but she said as she was leaving that we should’ve played a Poison tune earlier on :).
    We offered to play the one Poison tune we do know, but I guess we were too late 😦

    -I love the stage in here-lots of room & elevated. It actually reminds me a lot of the stage at a bar named Murphy’s that we used to play in downtown Syracuse back in 2005. I think we should invest in a few trees & cans just for front lighting. Nothing that’s flashing-just a steady white light. That’s what happens when you get older 🙂 The room was a little dry, sound wise,as well-but that might be my fatigue talking. The crowd here was great and we had some wild people with us here this night.

    -Overall, I think we did good-albeit a slow start. We’re gonna be back here on 4/11 and I know I’ll do better cause it’s on a Saturday 🙂 We want to thank everyone at the Shamrocks organization for having us here-you guys are great & treated us great. We also want to thank everyone who came out to check us out this night-we deeply appreciate it and we hope to see you all at future shows.
    If so, please bring a friend!

    Next stop-Schultzies in Phoenix- Friday 3/6-CB from 10-2!
