Hooligan's and The Falls both now on our regular schedule! and a congrats to some our friends!

WOW! What an amazing weekend! Our first time back at Hooligan's at I-35 in almost a year was a great success and we are already booked there for October 1 and the new location at I-10 Oct. 15. Thanks to evryone who came out and supported ... you really made the difference.

We ended up using our own equipment at the gig, because we don't know of anyone available we could trust as a soundman. Too often, we've hired people to run sound who had no clue about what they were doing, or didn't listen to us when we gave them instructions, or got drunk by the second set. That was the main reason we went out and got our own sound and light system, so we could run it from the stage. What use was a soundman we usually paid more than we received who couldn't do shit?

ANYWAY .... Hooligan's was amazing!! The staff loved us, the audience loved us, and especially, the general manager loved us! So we're back there on Saturday Oct. 12, and got a call a day later that they want us at the other location on I-10, that used to be Duke's Roadhouse! Hoping we can keep these two great clubs on our rotation.

On Saturday, we played an entirely new club, The Falls, over off Bitters and 281. We had no idea what to expect as we had gotten hired there just a few days earlier when the manager called us up and asked if we wanted to play! What an incredible place! It has an actual waterfall behind the bar, so you could hear water running all night! A great stage and bar staff made it a night to remember. And the crowd was one of our best! They really liked what we were playing and we got nothing but positive feedback all night. We're back there on Oct. 29, and I am sure it'll be part of our regular rotation.

Just want to take a break here to send a HUGE congrats out to our good friends, Chris and Elizabeth, who just had a baby boy a few weeks ago! The're great freiends and fans, and we missed seeing them out lately! The baby's name is Austin ... hmmm, that have anything to do with where he was conceived, you think?.....good thing it wasn't in Alice! Anyway, we all look forward to seeing you guys out on the scene soon!

So far, we're playing pretty much as much as we want to play. We really don't want to do the weeknight thing because we all have families and jobs and stuff. It just wears you down playing all week, and we want to keep this fun for everyone. We had no intention on becoming a full-time cover band ... we really do do this for fun ... it's kinda like a hobby that pays! All the clubs we have played at have been so cool, and that is what makes the difference for a band.

We're back on the SOUTH SIIIIIDE on Friday Aug. 26 at the Trap, 4711 Pecan Valley, off E. Southcross. We always have a good time at this home away from home, and it's been since June since we've played there, so come on out!

And a thank you out to Rowan from SA Rocks blog and Staci for the joining us out at Hooligan's last week! They put a very nice comment about us on the blog, and were great to talk to, as always. Thank you ladies!
