 Thirion X played at UNCLE SAM's BAR AND GRILL in Spanaway, WA. last Friday, August 8th...WOW. They had a gig on Saturday too, the 9th in Fife, WA....then rest up back in Spokane.
I'd never heard a live 'Heavy Metal' before...the music was intense and powerful...what a show...HEAVY METAL fans will be delighted with this!. Everyone at Uncle Sam's were cheering and loving it all....AND we are ...well, 'er'  mostly from a diFFerent generation than these young wipersnappers....AND we really enjoyed ourselves, So,. I've posted Thirion X's upcoming shows on the link above AND will tell my family in 'Ol Spokalou'....[Spokane]...go out and support, check out and have a good time with these amazing guys. BARTLETT has never played 'Heavy Metal' and thought it would be lotsa fun, thought, maybe he'd been missing out on something good, after watching the band. We'll be sure to keep an eye on this group of
Well, you might ask...'why were we at Uncle Sam's last Friday?'   Steve BARTLETT ON BASS was honored to play again with JOSEPH PLEMMONS/guitar/vocals, DEB STONE/keys/vocals and DON YOUNG/drums in Plemmon's band called 'STRANGE PLEASURE'.

Suffering...'It All Went Down The Drain' With BARTLETT Singing BOZ SCAGGS

Steve singing with Shelly 2008 by J.A. Rose-Bartlett cc
O.K.... My BARTLETT's gonna do more, he has a great singing voice, as we ALL hear, he's got the Bass down...knows it inside out....and Steve's always sang back ground harmonies...Great, So, now the next BIG step, it's time to do more,.. like lead vocal stuff.
Our friends, DON SUNN/vocals and BOB CORL/vocals have helped BARTLETT before, teaching him how to have more confidance and controled power in his voice.
Now the really fun part....singing.
 BLUZZZ Queen, and our friend SHELLY ELY/vocals is helping him out and suggested some tunes. So, I've been looking these up on YOUTUBE and getting them ready for Steve to hear and learn.
Shell thought that Steve sounded like Boz Scaggs..What?  Boz Scaggs?
.AND, guess what? He does...I've never thought too much about his singing voice....but, Shelly's right. His voice seemed a 'natural' Boz Scaggs
So, today I'm excited about hearing more vocals from BARTLETT ON BASS. I'm searching online for more tunes I'll post some of the ideas I've found so far below, and will keep adding songs I like and ideas as I find them. O.K? If Steve likes these he'll change a word or phase there and make the songs his own. He's heard the Boz Scaggs tune and is working on it already. What cha think? 'LaLaLa...Doe-Ray Me'. Jan SMILE
