Hey hey!

i wasn't a fan at first but the intelligent banter has drawn me in like a stinkbug into a vacuum nozzle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:10pm Krys O.:

The last gig I attended was in March. It was a memorial for my friend, Ralph Carney, at Roulette. The music was phenomenal, but it was so bittersweet without the man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:11pm northguineahills:

weird, as Ted from Oakland posts, I get an unsolicited call from Oakland (I'm in FL).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:11pm Krys O.:

I've heard that Dean Martin did not drink on stage. He had apple juice in his glass, supposedly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:14pm northguineahills:

(and the voicemail was in Mandarin, go figure....)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Krys O. - Have you heard anything about Foster Brooks? Was he drunk or just pretending?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:15pm chris:

at one point, and it may still be true, Oakland had/s the largest Chinatown on the west coast

foster brooks was totally sober when he did his bit. frank fontaine as crazy guggenheim too
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:18pm Krys O.:

@Ken: Brooks was sober! "When he was a younger man, she said, he was a weekend drinker. But in the early 1960s, she said, "he just one day cold-turkey stopped drinking and smoking. He always said if he hadn't done that, he wouldn't have made it" in show business.

As Brooks told The Times in 1972, "I never drew a sober breath from Friday night to Monday. Eight years ago, I quit. Fellow made me a $10 bet I couldn't quit, and I haven't had a drink since. At the time I needed the $10."

Elmendorf said recovering alcoholics often approached her father and told him that his drunk portrayal "gave them the laughter they needed to get through their recovery." And, she said, "he actually became national spokesperson for Mothers Against Drunk Driving and did public service announcements in many states.""

I always applaud people watching (the 5 or 6) and us when we play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:19pm Krys O.:

Excellent call! Have fun at Brooklyn Steel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Krys.
  Thu. 4/19/18 6:23pm Ted from Oakland:

Hey hey I played at a memorial for Ralph Carney in March. SF at the make out room.....I heard there was another show for him in NY.
  Thu. 4/19/18 6:24pm Tim:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:25pm Krys O.:

@Ted: Wonderful! Ralph was one of a kind.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/19/18 6:25pm dale:

this is kind of like beavis and butthead paid their way through nyu by being in a kick ass band.
  Thu. 4/19/18 6:26pm Ted from Oakland:

I once did a wild weird gig with just me and Ralph and David Thomas. Circa 1998.
  Thu. 4/19/18 6:27pm Richie Dubs:

Hilarious! I’m eating in Front of my band tomorrow!
  Thu. 4/19/18 6:28pm Tim:

let's talk near wild heaven?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:30pm northguineahills:

I believe music should be part of everyday culture (as it was before the 18th c), so food and drink should be encouraged. Just be respectful, and don't talk to loud.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:31pm Krys O.:

I'm getting hungry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:32pm Tommy in Neversink:

I think if you have a lot of rules about what the audience can or can't do nobody will want to come
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:32pm northguineahills:

I had a band member make smoothies for the audience while the blender was contact miced.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/19/18 6:34pm dale:

i was talking to a guy at bear mountain who was walking the trail - i asked about meetup sex and he said there was a name for people hooking up on the trail (i forgot the term) but he said it smelled pretty bad because of the lack of showers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:34pm Krys O.:

I LOVE Joan La Barbara!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:34pm Tommy in Neversink:

I play piano and I want people to be eating and talking when I'm playing . It's about them having a good time. I could care less if they hear every note I play. To me, the sound of the people is part of it. I'm playing off of it
  Thu. 4/19/18 6:34pm P-90:

The "boil your guitar strings" thing started when Floyd Rose tremolo tailpieces began to get popular, thanks primarily to Eddie Van Halen, who is rumored to be quite a decent cook himself. Boiling the strings was supposed to help them stay in tune without a long breaking-in period.

What Krys O said

I love Sunday at the Village Vanguard by Bill Evans Trio... the audience talking in the background ads to the ambiance
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:37pm Tommy in Neversink:

Drum circles need to be outlawed
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:37pm Krys O.:

@Ted from Oakland: I made the videos for Ralph's songs. www.youtube.com...

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:37pm Tommy in Neversink:

But one or two guys playing is cool
  Thu. 4/19/18 6:38pm own crabapplesatellite Johnson:

There's a Wednesday night drum circle around the corner from my house... my girlfriend hates it the keep her up every Wednesday during the summer... I'm surprised she hasn't called in a noise complaint yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:38pm northguineahills:

I'm more for drum machine circles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:39pm Krys O.:

Gig Talk: Baffling at Times
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:58pm northguineahills:

It was originally released as a bunch of 7's, unfortunately out of print and not downloadable now. AUM Fidelity will hopefully rectify that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/19/18 6:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks Matt, Kevin, Peter, and Cooper-Moore!
