PAST LETTERS

-The following are the letters sent to CAROLINE BLUE and their replies…Back in the days before Facebook (hell, before My Space!) one of the ways that people communicated w/ CAROLINE BLUE was via email (and even the occasional “snail mail” letter!). From 2002-2005, the CAROLINE BLUE page had a “LETTERS” page. People would write in and WWJ (plus sometimes one of the others) would do their best to answer / respond. Yes, we know that 2004 is missing. πŸ™‚ Things were quite busy for WWJ & “The Crew” back then. As you can see, an attempt was made to post letters starting w/ what was then current letters in Jan. of 2005. Perhaps one day the letters from 2004 will make it up here…..

-In addition, please note, all links that were on the old website for this page have been removed. Many of them went to pages that no longer exist (mostly bands).

-Please also note that, as per the format, the letters and responses are posted in reverse order. This means that, starting from the top, are letters from 2005 and as you read and scroll down they regress back towards 2004, 2003, etc.

Hey Wayne,
I picked up the CD at Johnny Z’s. It sounds great! Nice job! Dave Hyuck did a great job of capturing some killer guitar tones. Thanks for the mention in the liner notes. I really appreciate that.

Jerry-FJA Mods

No problem Jerry-glad you liked the CD! Hope to see you out at a show soon-unless something goes wrong with my amp again. If so, I’ll probably see you sooner πŸ™‚ Take care.

You guys need to have a show down here…I’m dying to go see a good show! And there’s quite a lot of my friends, who have bands down here. and I’ve told them about you. They wanna experience your music, most of my friends are in heavy metal bands….star says this shall happen-so mote it be dammit!! *giggle giggle* But seriously….don’t make me stalk you! *he he* love you guys!

Star-Pennsville,NJ

We actually have talked about hitting NJ for a few shows. If you could, email us some info about the scene there-clubs/bands/etc….website links would help too….Hopefully we’ll be there soon. Metal J has been around the scene out there a little bit and knows a number of people out there.

WAYNE

 

1/2/2005

Awsome!!! OMG (In the Crazy Fan voice)-my name is on your disc. Awsome! Thank you as well for allowing me to help you. I love helping at being at your shows…..On the solo instrumental #11; are you working on words to go with that or is that just something for fun? I think it’s very pretty (sorry if that’s too girly).
Sincerely,
Gabriel K.-Syracuse,NY

That track-named Inertia-was made to help all the insomniacs of the world get some sleep-HA! No words for it-just a simple little instrumental piece. There was actually suppose to be an effect on it, but there wasn’t enough time to get it right so it was left off. Oh well….maybe when it’s remastered in 10 years….

WAYNE

 

1/1/2005

Happy New year guys! Hope all is well with you and yours and may you have a successful New year.

Trish-Syracuse,NY

Thanks-Trish! Hope you have a great 2005 as well!

12/30/2003

Wayne,
You put a lot of time into your website. It shows. Is this entirely your work? I know I spoke with you about this before,but I wasn’t sure this was all your work. If it is,nice job!

Zoey-Syracuse,NY

Thanks Zoey! Yes-I put the whole site together and maintain it-but CAROLINE BLUE wouldn’t be what it is without the sum of ALL of it’s members. Otherwise I’d just call this band “Wayne.” πŸ™‚
Actually-I couldn’t do that even if I wanted to cause there’s already a band called “Wayne”…..Go figure….

WAYNE

 

12/7/2003

Wayne,
Well, you’re always asking me what I’ve been doing with my painting. I got inspired awhile back but tried to ignore it cuz it was a subject I’m not very good at. I hoped and hoped this idea would go away on its own,but all it did was fester,and give me the worst case of painter’s block I’ve ever had. Let me know if you can’t get it open-cuz this one is all for you.

RnRPaintGrl-Syracuse,NY

Wow-that is great! Very cool! It is very much appreciated RNRPG….To see her painting,click on the link to our FAN ART. Thank you very much!

HI,

I’M A CAROLINE BLUE FAN AND I WAS JUST WONDERING WHEN YOU WERE GOING TO BE PLAYING AT GATHERINGS BY DESIGN AGAIN COULD YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW?

THANKS SO MUCH,
A CAROLINE BLUE FAN

Well CB Fan, thanks a lot for writing in! The band had a great time the last time they played at Gatherings By Design and plan on being there again soon. The only show they have at the moment is on Halloween at Bleachers (see SHOWS). You can keep checking out that page for future show dates and/or you could sign up for our FREE Handy dandy Newsletter Boy Howdy! Just go to the CONTACT page and sign up! It’s that simple! Ciao!

Wayne,

……You dunt like post those (pictures) anywhere do u?……

The Queen of Skullz-Somewhere in Cyberspace.

Yes,this is from a legit email.Not everyone uses their real name.The reason I put that part on here is to address an issue. Some people see me at clubs all the time taking pics-it’s what I do. They wonder if I’ll post them on the site-specifically the FANS,FRIENDS, & FREAKS page. The only pics that will be posted on that page will be from CAROLINE BLUE events and that person has to have a member of the band in the pic with them. Hope this clears up things! Thanks!

WAYNE

 

10/7/2003

Wayne,

….I also heard that you cut your hair?! I heard about 6 inches and more to go??!! Tell me this isn’t true!!….

Jules-Fulton,NY

Well,I did get it cut. Still long, but not as….Come Halloween it will be shorter and curlier as well. Wanna see? Come out to Bleachers! (See SHOWS). Take care.

WAYNE

 

9/8/2003

Wayne,

No problem for coming out the other night…Had a lot of fun seeing many people I haven’t seen in awhile…I meant every word I said when I told you this was the best version of Caroline Blue I have seen yet….You seemed way more comfortable up there on stage with a solid rhythm section behind you…I was VERY impressed with what I saw…

The drummer reminded me so much of my old friend Paul Grillo behind those drums it was scary (remember him? He was the 21 year old drummer that died from Czar and New Reign).

If I get a chance tomorrow at work I’ll post a message on the forum…or I could hire a man to break that little drummer guy’s legs if he doesn’t continue to play with Caroline Blue….I don’t think he realizes just how hard you work at promoting Caroline Blue…I see every email you send, every flyer you post…you’re a hard worker man…and I respect that very much. πŸ™‚

Latah,
Big Billy B.-The Back Alley Boys

Big Bill,

Thank you very much for the props-it’s VERY much appreciated. I try. Glad you had a good time last Saturday. I think that if there was a MVP award for that night it would go to “Small.” He pulled thru with flying colors-and with basically only 1 rehearsal with the band! As for him staying with the band,it would be great-but that’s totally his decision. And whatever it is,I will respect it. I mean, what other guy can do all that powerhouse drumming while wearing leather pants??? πŸ™‚ For those of you who may have missed the show, this upcoming Friday (9/12) will be your chance to catch “Small” in action! Go to the SHOWS page for details! Again Billy-thanks for the props-even though my work has just begun…..

WAYNE

 

9/8/2003

Wayne,
I’m glad I went on Saturday. Had a great time! Hope things are good with you.

Heather B.-Liverpool,NY

Thanks Heather-it was great seeing you and the rest of the gang there. Glad you had a great time and hope to see you guys at future shows. Take care.

WAYNE

 

8/27/2003

Hey,

I hear you got a new drummer….Ken Simpson!! Excellent choice one of the best in the business. I knew him back in the Holly and The New Yorker days….looking forward to seeing him play out again!

SexyNCuse-Somewhere in Cyberspace…

Unfortunately, Kenny is no longer with the band. Read all about it in the NEWS section.

8/26/2003

Hey Wayne & Ham,

I’m an old friend of Jamie Criscione…Lewis…whatever his name is. Guessing that Jim checks this site out and knowing his ego I thought I’d post and inquire about him. Kind of bust his balls and keep him thinking…..
Wayne,I don’t know if you remember me,but I actually hung out with Jim when you joined the band (FRONT ROW)…..I think I actually have some old video of you playing at The Lost Horizon. I stumbled across your site while searching the net for anything musical that related to another old friend,Fran Scaglione. Jim has him listed as his favorite drummer in his facts stats thing. Glad I found the site. Always thought you were an excellent guitar player. Randy was good too, but kind of boring to watch. You have flash man.
Ham, you probably don’t remember me. I was friends with Chaz & JC-The All Americans. I was also a cameraman for many of your live shows and a few of the shows taped at the boxing gym….I watched the interview that you guys did for UMTV-it was on their website-and thought that you looked familiar. Looks like you’ve added some meat to your bones since the wrestling days…you were a stick then…hair looks the same.
Small fucking world! Anyway,I’m glad I found the site. Would love to hear more tunes.Rock on.

Not JC-Somewhere in Cyberspace…

Thank you very much for the kind words. It’s easy to tell what Jim’s name is.It’s Jim unless he puts on that jacket that he wore on stage back in 92-92….then he becomes JAMIE CRISCIONE-SAVIOR OF CIVILIZATION & PROTECTOR OF ITALIANS EVERYWHERE!!!…..Just ask him,he’ll tell ya….(HA!). Very cool to hear from you-I vaguely remember the name-didn’t you help tape a show at Big Bertha’s one time? I think I have that on tape. I’ll keep ya informed on what’s going on here and hope everything is going well. Take care.

WAYNE

 

8/7/2003

Nice job guys!!!! LOVE the ICEMAN!!!

Marvereno-Ozone

Thanks dude! Marv’s talkin about the new CAROLINE BLUE video “Mine,Mine,Mine” which was on this night on UMTV. The Iceman is the $1200 guitar I was using-it’s an original 1978 Paul Stanley Ibanez Iceman guitar. Very awesome!!

WAYNE

 

8/7/2003

Hey Wayne,

Just wanted to let you know that I FINALLY checked out your website. It’s great!

Tammy-Somewhere in cyberspace…

Thanks for stoppin by-hope you liked what you saw and hope you keep checkin back. Maybe we’ll see ya at a show. Take care.

WAYNE

 

8/6/2003

….Loved the interview and the promos/intros you guys do for UMTV; reminds me of what Empty-Vee once was, lo those many eons ago! πŸ˜›

West Side Dave-Fulton,NY

Skippy! Glad ya liked em-the boys sure did quite a lot of them promos boy howdy! Hopefully CAROLINE BLUE will be doing some more stuff like that with UMTV in the near future!

SATCHEL

 

8/5/2003

Wayne,

Got the video! “Mine,Mine,Mine” kicks ass! This is the kind of thing we SHOULD be seeing on Empty-Vee; thank God for UMTV at least! (Now,if only they’d start broadcasting in Fulton!) I’ll be checking out the rest of the tape after I send this, and will give you my impressions, for whatever THEY’RE worth! lol Just want to say HUGE thanks once again for the tape; and I’ll do my best to send people to the CAROLINE BLUE site. My compliments to you and the band on a job VERY well done! Take care.

West Side Dave-Fulton,NY

Dave,

Very cool that you got the tape and you liked it! Of course,tell us what you think. We wanna hear it all-the good and the bad! πŸ™‚ Keep watchin out for more CAROLINE BLUE stuff on UMTV-we’ve only just begun!

WAYNE

 

8/3/2003

Wayne,
I see you guys are playing Nasbar on September 13th;I’ll be there!! C-ya there!

Brother Wayne!

Thought 2 drop U a note-your June 13th show-Wow! I had a great time. You’ve got a great band. I’m very happy for you! Wayne-Could you send me some of your upcoming dates? It was great 2 CU! Best wishes-

Brother Dave-Syracuse,NY

You’re much too kind Dave-thank you very much! The latest show dates are on your way. Great seeing you too and hope to see ya at future shows! Take care.

WAYNE

 

7/10/2003

Wayne,

I was on the site last night. It looks good. I have to say one thing, you do not generate any so-so feelings. They either feel very strongly for or against whatever they have to say. What did poor Ham do to deserve that kind of comment? Feed him chips?? Really. People never cease to amaze me. The poll was an easy one. Still waiting for the CD! I will take a look at the UMTV site for the new video. I am glad things seem to be moving forward for you and that they continue to do so.

Later,
Susan- Albany,NY

Thanks Susan-great to hear from ya! I know the LETTERS page is a little slow since we put up the Forum and the Guestbook is always entertaining, but it’s great to still get emails. Personally, I think once Ham put on that jacket during the interview-all bets were off! (HA!) I’ll let you-and anyone who will listen-know when the video can be seen! It’s awesome! Thanks again Susan. Take care.

WAYNE

 

6/24/2003

Hey Wayne!

I was wondering when you would get email. I hope you remember me. I used to hang out with ………. and had all kinds of photos of you with FOUR LARGE MEN. I didn’t know you were in another band now. Last I knew it was Tastes Like Chicken. Hope to see ya or hear from you soon. Let me know when you guys are playing. Thanks.

Paula-Somwhere in Cyberspace.

Thanks Paula-yeppers, I remember ya. Glad you found your way to this site. I got ya on our mailing list and we should hopefully be playing out soon. Thanks again. Take care.

I have a date tonight so I won’t be able to make the gig. I’m sorry man cause I want to see you guys. Good luck and kick some ass!!!

Hey Marv,

Why not bring your date to the show? No go? Oh well….I tried….thanks dude. Keep an eye out for us!

Wayne,
Thanks for dropping by the site AND for the double guestbook sinage!…..I checked out the Mp3 clips; they ROCK! I really liked “I’m No Angel,”-that one has potential. And it was nice to see that the 2 live tracks were recorded in lil ol’ Fulton! Looking forward to seeing you guys here sometime. Talk to ya later…

West Side Dave-Fulton,NY

Dave,
Thanks dude! Hopefully we’ll be playing out in Fulton soon! It’s always interesting playing out that way. Hope to see ya out there when we do. BTW-for people reading this,go to our LINKS page and check out Dave’s site-it’s hard to believe all that was built with webtv! Take care.

3/24/2003

Hey dude bet you ain’t got idea who this be. Wish I played drums I would help. But I will turn everyone I know on to your web. You got some cool stuff. Sorry I missed the show at the “Door.” Would have liked to seen you. If you ever need a front man, give me a line! In mean time I will send your e dress out to some friends.
Later,

Thanks for the offer and for the extra promo.That’s very cool.As for who you are,well,I know you’re a singer so….oh well,might as well just gather up my Toys and put them In The Attic…….:-)

3/11/2003

Wayne,

I can’t believe he would ask for $50,000 a year-especially when you’re only paying me $40,000. I am grateful for the health benefits though.

HAM-Syracuse,NY

 

3/8/2003

$50,000 per year plus health benefits and 401k in a written contract will get you this pro drummer for 12 hours a day,5 days a week. That’s cheap if your serious. I also write, play bass, guitar and keyboards.

Bill W.-Somewhere in cyberspace

 

2/27/2003

Dear CAROLINE BLUE,

Hi Wayne! I get your printouts, but they come too late for me and Lori to see you. I just got the one today that says you’re suppose to play at The Red Door North on 2/22/2003. Obviously I wasn’t able to make it! I’d really like to come and see you and so would Lori so let us know a week in advance. Keep sending your letters.My new address is (…………..).

Jane-North Syracuse,NY.

Hiya Jane! Believe it or not, it WAS sent out a week early this time! Obviously, the change in address caused a delay. Sorry you guys missed the show-it was a good one! Unfortunately, there are times when the snail mail newsletters aren’t received in time. That’s why we urge everyone to sign up via email-cause then you can get the newsletter right away! Plus you can also get updates on stuff like last minute shows and stuff. We will be sending out a little notice sometime soon urging people to switch to the email signup. We won’t cancel the snail mail people-people can’t help if they don’t have a computer-but with the costs rising, it’s sometimes hard to get things out promptly. Hope to see you guys at the next show!

WAYNE

 

2/16/2003

Hi Wayne,
Hope you had a great birthday.I know,I’m a few days behind. I’m looking forward to checking out the band with the new guys (even though Marv isn’t really “new” to me!). It has been WAY too long since I’ve seen you on stage! It’s kinda funny, I was going to go to the Sub-Urban show and decided not to at the last minute, otherwise I would’ve seen you there! OK, well I wanted to wish you a happy birthday so there you have it! Take care.

Julie-Fulton,NY

Thank you very much Julie! I appreciate it. I’m looking forward to the show very much-as are the other guys. Hope to see ya there!

WAYNE

 

1/26/2003

Wayne,
I am so sorry I could not make it to the show. I thought I had planned so carefully in order to show up for the first live show since I met you. Only to have fate intervene and along with work being such a disaster, managing to park the SAAB in a snow bank and burning out the transmission was just icing on the cake. I really hope things went well!!! Hopefully, I will be able to make the next one.
All my best,

SEA-Albany,NY

No problem-sorry to hear about your car problems. But that’s what you get when driving a SAAAAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBBBBB!!! πŸ˜€ There were a few problems, but overall it was fine. Hope to see ya at the next one.Take care.

Hey Wayne,

Hey WWJ,
Here’s some tips about women you won’t read about in Cosmo:

1)-“Calling Dr.Love” does not have to be played as you enter the bedroom. Despite the initials WWJ, you are NOT a professional wrestler and, therefore, you do not require an entrance “theme” song…

2)-When asked,”How was it ?,”…don’t reply,”…You’ll read about it in the book!”….

3)-When saying goodbye the next morning, you should not give her a CAROLINE BLUE business card as a memento!…

4)-Don’t stand on the bed afterwards and perform “The Spotlight.”….

5)-When you see her in her Victoria Secret’s, don’t say,”…I think I wore that onstage once…”….

Merry Christmas Brother!

“I’ll send ya a copy of the CD when it’s done-we’re more in the KISS vein so I hope it isn’t too “lite” for ya!”

Not at all! I’d be honored;thanks a TON,’bro. Can’t WAIT to check out the tunes!

Thanks for the kudos dude! I can only imagine what your site would be like if built with a regular computer-it would be a monster! We also now have a link to your site on our LINKS page. As soon as the CD is all done, I’ll get a copy to ya! Take care.

Wayne,
I checked out your promo. That was pretty good-but I was like expecting a whole song. There wasn’t any vocals! I’ve yet to hear you sing. Oh, and I checked out the Guestbook-and I saw the entry from meanoqueen. Haha. How nasty!…God Wayne-thought you’d at least find a nice girl! She must’ve been hot…Gotta go for now.Hope all is good!

Nikki-Syracuse,NY

Nikki,
Glad ya liked the promo! We just did a video for UMTV and it should be out before the end of the month. Shortly after I’ll have the “Crew” bring it over to the site.They also plan on putting some Mp3’s up-either on the site or a link that will take ya to a site. In regards to the Guestbook,yeah-it can be quite a trip reading that stuff-wait till we get the forum up here! As for “Queenie,” I guess my response is the same that she keeps voting on the current poll….”No Comment.” Thanks again!

Hi Wayne,
I just wanted to take the time to let you know that the site looks really good. Nice job! I’m hoping to get out to see the band before I move….Your hair looks awesome in the pics….Take care and I wish you continued success in your venture!

Georgene-(Weaves Gone Wild)

Thank you very much for those kind words! I hope you get to see the band out soon too! Can’t wait to get out on stage again.But we’re trying to get the CD done and we also just filmed a video for UMTV. Thank you very much for the hair compliment-then again,the only reason why it looks so good is cause you guys at Weaves Gone Wild (Click on their Banner on LINKS) take good care of it. I should be in sometime soon so you guys can get it out of the mess I made it into πŸ˜€ Take care.

WAYNE

Hi,
Where are you playing tonight? Thanks.

Pete-CyberSpace

Hiya Pete,
Thanks for the question! CAROLINE BLUE doesn’t have any shows lined up at the moment. They’re in the midst of trying to finish off their handy-dandy CD. It better be awesome if it’s takin’ this long boy howdy! We did learn that CAROLINE BLUE is filming a brand new video for UMTV this very night-as well as tomorrow night! Check on da NEWS link for more info.Well….? Whatcha waitin’ for????? Ciao.

Hey there…
I checked out your promo and it rocks. Loved it…Forums do seem to attract all sorts of interesting characters and all their silliness….Hope to see you at a show soon too.

Foxx E. Soxx-(Thunderosa)

Thank you very much! Great hearing from the hottest member of the mighty Thunderosa! If ya wanna see what they’re up to, go to LINKS and click on da Thunderosa banner-it’s pretty intense! And hopefully there will be a forum here before the end of November. Cya soon Foxx E…

Hey,

Dude I saw your promo! I watched it three times in a row because it kicked so much ass! I LOVE the way it was put together…and especially at the end when you…I don’t remember if you punch at the camera or something and there’s a BOOM! sound…and then the promo cuts off after that…THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!…did Mike see it yet? πŸ˜€

Cristl :)-(Day Glo Crazies)

Hey Back!

Wow-talk about having one’s ego yanked into the stratosphere! Thank you so very much Cristl! You are much too kind! I had the idea in my head for that promo for months and it’s so great to have it now become reality. Looks like someone got to see it a little early-it hasn’t aired on UMTV yet. πŸ˜€ Hopefully in a week or 2. I’ll have the “crew” post it up here when it airs. And yes, Mikey saw it. I surprised him with that “move” I did during the middle-you’d think after all those years of being on stage together that nothing I do would surprise him yet….CAROLINE BLUE is arriving on UMTV. And this is only just the beginning!

WAYNE

 

7/23/2002

Wayne,

I have been hearing about you for over a year from Gail and when she introduced us I couldn’t think of a single thing to say. I could tell you it was because I was so overcome by your charms but in reality, by that time, I had such a miserable headache from too much sun that I could barely remember my own name. I just finished looking at your site, and-Please, please don’t cut your hair off! It is absolutely gorgeous-you can take that as a late vote for your last poll. Otherwise, I enjoyed the pictures. Loved the one of Mike you had mentioned. Anyway, I am sorry I did not get a chance to talk to you and wanted to know if you were coming to Albany on August 2nd for D.O.M. at Northern Lights? I have to ask about the statement,

“I also seem to be pretty good at makin’ women hate me (3 and counting…)”

There has got to be a story behind that one.I hope I get the chance to hear it.

Susan-Albany,NY

With letters like that, no wonder I have such a lead on the current poll (HA!). Thank you very much for the compliments Susan. You’re too kind. Don’t worry-I don’t plan on cutting my hair until I start balding-which shouldn’t be for quite awhile (knock on wood). We did have a show planned for 8/2,but it fell thru so I’ll probably be at DOM’s show. They’re an awesome band and I’m usually at their shows anyway (go to LINKS and click on the Dogs On Mars link). As for that quote (which is from FACTS’N’STATS), those women are very beautiful and are good people, but you can’t please everyone. Not even me-Mr.Ego (HA!). Talk to ya soon and take care.

WAYNE

Hey

Your website is HUGE! I haven’t even gone through all of it -but it was entertaining while I was there.I can just keep coming back and finding more which is awesome LOL.The poll was funny-I voted that you should keep your hair the way it is damn it! Don’t listen to the other people!!! Talk to you soon.

Jerimi-(Day Glo Crazies)

Those polls sure are somethin’ huh? Wayne didn’t cut his hair at all actually-well, he did buy some Nair for the 5-6 hairs he has on his chest πŸ˜€ . For those who don’t know what this is about, click on ARCHIVE and look at the past polls. And while you’re at it, go to the LINKS page and check out the Day Glo Crazies. Pretty zippy site-you go girlz!

Hey Wayne!

Enjoyed the show the other night (always do!). Hope the pictures came out alright-I tried! Looking to see some more shows soon-hopefully headliners where you can play a bit longer. You know, ALL the good stuff! Take care.

Julie-Fulton,NY

Thanks Julie-you did a great job w/ the pictures! They look great. We’ll get them posted ASAP.I know our set was a little short-but that’s OK. At least we got to play! Be on the lookout for more shows and surprises coming soon!!

Any pictures from The Red Door North available yet?

Thanks for writing in.Cool website! We don’t have any headlining shows lined up at the moment, but we’ll definitely keep you in mind when we do. Take care.

WAYNE

 

6/4/2002

Hey Wayne,
Actually,musically you guys sounded pretty good the other night.The mix was a little muddy and the guitar solos were buried (but not to the point where you couldn’t hear what was being played) but overall-great show.Questionable mixes happen to everyone…you know that by now πŸ™‚
You do a great job singing AC/DC.I was pretty surprised at your vocals actually.To me, you sound like Paul Stanley. I was hoping you guys were going to break into “Black Diamond” or something.
Go ahead and put me on your newsletter. I’ll try to make it to more of your shows. I had a lot of fun the other night. Saw the mention of “Big Bill Blanchard” on your NEWS page…LOL.T ake it easy.

William Blanchard-Syracuse,NY

Bill,
You’re much too kind-Thank you very much! Glad you had a good time. The newsletters are on their way. And for those of you who want to hear some great instrumental music, go to the LINKS page and click on Bill’s link-there’s some great stuff! Take care.

Hey,
I was wondering if you might be able to help suggest some good places for local bands to play when they’re just starting out. Troop 204 is the name of the band. Their style is like the Deftones.They have more originals than covers. They cover My Own Summer, Head Up, Back To School and a few others.They’re working on some Papa Roach too. They’ve had a show at Armory High in Syracuse and had a decent turnout. Now they’re looking for more places to play. If you can help with any kind of suggestions I would really appreciate it. If you can think of anything please e-mail me back. Thanks so much πŸ˜‰

Jessica B.-Syracuse,NY

Jessica,
Here’s a few places you can try:

(1)-Bleachers/Syracuse-(451-4841)-they’re starting to have heavier bands there so they might be worth a try.
(2)-Lost Horizon/Syracuse-(446-1934)
(3)-Planet 505/Syracuse-(471-8646)
(4)-Gatherings By Design/Phoenix-(695-3950)
(5)-Club 48/Fulton-(593-6666)
(6)-The Brickhouse/Fulton-(598-1529)

Don’t really know about the Fulton ones, but it can’t hurt to try right? Hope this helps out. Take care.

WAYNE

 

5/19/2002

Wayne,

How R things? Who’s in the band who’s playin Bass? Just curious.

Joe-Liverpool,NY

Things are going well with CAROLINE BLUE-albeit a little slower than I’d like. Check out the NEWS link for more info. Roy St. James is still playin’ the “B-Ass Guitar”-but at the show at The Red Door North, on 6/1, a bassist named “JC” will be there. Also, there might be an additional member up on stage w/ us. Check out the SHOWS link for more info. Hope to see ya at the show!

WAYNE

 

5/18/2002

Wayne,
Where do you guy’s mostly play and how often do you play a month? The site is pretty cool!

Tom-Baldwinsville,NY

Tom,

At the moment, CAROLINE BLUE mainly plays in Oswego County-specifically in the Fulton/Phoenix area. The band plans to expand into Oswego and Syracuse soon. Shows are a little sparse at the moment, but they will soon pick up. Glad to hear from ya! Take care.

WAYNE

 

4/1/2002

Hi.I’m writing about a possible gig for the CAROLINE BLUE band. This would be on Thursday May 23rd during the day, possibly at 11 or 12 o clock in the afternoon for maybe 2 hours. It would be at Jamesville Dewitt High School, in Dewitt NY, outdoors if weather permits. If not, inside of the gym possibly. It’s sponsored by our student government,and we really have no clue how much something like this would cost. We wanted to replace the crappy DJ of years past. This leaves us able to spend $200 to $300 on musical entertainment. If you could let me know how much something like this would usually cost, or if it would even be possible on this day, it would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!

Tim-Syracuse,NY

Unfortunately, CAROLINE BLUE won’t be able to play that show. If I may suggest, go to the LINKS section on this site. There are several bands who might be able to help-like Dogs on Mars. In regards to expenses,the biggest thing will probably be PA. Is there one already there (not just a simple school one,but one for a band) or does the band have to bring one in ? If the later, your costs will probably be higher. PA rentals range from $150-$300+,which may or may not include a sound man to run it. One of the reasons why bands are so damn poor :-D. Hope this helps. Take care.

Hey-about this “Butt Poll”….I think the winner should show us his butt…kind of a “Show Them What They’ve Won” deal. And one comment about Roy…you can have all the contests you want…nobody is gonna lick his butt!!!

Jerry-Oneida,N.Y.

The President of Roy’s “Fan Club For Men” has spoken!…now we know there’s at least one person who wants to visit the CAROLINE BLUE Diner and order a “Moons Over My Hammy” from Mr. St. James! We’ll post this to the winner…although don’t count anyone else out yet! Go to the MONTHLY POLL and put in as many votes as you want-remember, the poll ends on 3/31st!!!

Gaelicgal-Oswego,N.Y.

Well….that’s Dave for ya! He does seem to be popular with da people out there. Maybe it has something to do with his time in prison…:-D Course, you can vote on the MONTHLY POLL as often as you like so….maybe it’s some drunk guy who keeps freeze framing old FRONT ROW videos of Dave in spandex :-D. Or maybe the votes are from that legion of midget-stalkers that hound him wherever he goes! Most people seem to agree that Dave has the goods. If you feel differently, go to the poll and vote! Da poll ends on 3/31.We’ll keep ya posted!

Tim,

Thanks for your letter Tim. We don’t have any shows after Club 48 at the moment. When we do,I’ll give ya a call.I checked out your site and Mp3’s and they were pretty cool! Lookin’ forward to workin’ with ya.Take care.

Roy,

YOU LOOK SEXY……..I WANT YOU

Jerry-Oneida,N.Y.

Hmm….and I…I mean,our fans in Georgia thought Wayne was the gay one-not that there’s anything wrong with that. It’s just that, if you are-why hide it? Be gay and be proud-if you’re into that.I just ran into Monster Mike Merrifield (Ex-FLM) who mentioned something about Roy’s Fan Club For Men. This bears further investigation!!!!!!!!!!!

Who IS that gorgeous drummer? And how do I meet him?

Gaelical4-Oswego,N.Y.

The drummer’s name is David Scott Victory the 12th and we hear he likes women who can beat him up on a daily basis. Strange-but everyone has their thing πŸ˜€ Actually we asked Dave and this was his response:

DAVE

“Tell her I said hi and to come to the next show wearing a scarf-and only a scarf-so I know which one is you.”

Spoken like the true lady killer that he is! Thanks for the great question! C-ya at the show. (Only a scarf huh? Hmm). Bye!

Why is Bucky asking you when you will be divorced? What is he,a latent homosexual trapped inside a cat’s body???

Deb-Syracuse,N.Y.

Wayne was gonna respond but I thought it would be better if I did. Bucky is my nickname. My real name is Rebeka-and I’m 100% female thank you very much! My friends gave me that nickname cause I tend to be…stubborn at times (“Especially when she’s out of Happy Pills.”-RICO).T hanks for writing in. Now excuse me-I have to go slap Rico. Peace.

BUCKY

 

1/18/2002

Hey guys! Just wondering who you are bringing into the band. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make this show. Is this a permanent thing? Hopefully I can catch the next show.

Julie-Fulton,N.Y.

Thanks for the question-Wayne seems to just keep us all locked up till we’re needed so it’s nice to get some feedback. According to Wayne, Roy St.James was unavailable for this show (rumor has it he’s searching for Diamonds in Chicago) so Scott Coon (AKA “Scooner” and “Chachi”) will be filling in on the “B-Ass Guitar.” Sorry you can’t get to a show. Next time right? Ciao.

Great show last night Wayne!!! The drummer is awesome!!! I’d like to meet him…he’s sooooo cute!!!!

Mimi-Oswego,N.Y.

Well-that’s Dave for ya.He’s not known as “The Lady Killer” for nothin.Course,it helps when he borrows Wayne’s personal cologne called “Whiff of Wayne” (Coming to the STORE sometime in the future!!). But even without it, Dave is STILL a powerful force. Dave seems to like aggressive women-so to meet him, just go up to him and slap his ass really hard! That’s what I heard he likes. Let us know how it goes.

RICO

I can only assume that you are a Get Fuzzy fan and must therefore catch the show……………….:)
