I've been inside our place [except for two gigs and the doctor] for about 2 1/2 years now...Getting stronger everyday and soon I'll be out and at Steve's gigs again...I just know it. For now, this is the closest I get to a whole live gig...Love my BASSMAN, that's all...AND, support his music always. Honored that I get to help him refresh old tunes for gigs. Thanks Steve.
Lots of music coming up soon for BARTLETT.
Let's see, tomorrow...Thursday there's a fun rehearsal with those awesome guys from WALTERs BIRTHDAY. That's TOD LEMKUHL/guitar/vocals, SCOTT ERCOLIANI/drums, JON BARONI/keys/harp/vocals and, of course, my BARTLETT ON BASS...it's at Tod's 'Dream Acres' in McKenna, WA.....Steve'll have a great time with his friends...They created a CD together in 2011, called just 'Walter's Birthday'. It's always available on CDBABY or at the WALTERs BIRTHDAY site, click HERE
Then, Friday night, Steve meets again with JEFF MORGAN/The Bass Jedi....Bass at it's best... Friday night's in Tacoma. The 'Force-Groove' is always with them. My story HERE
Saturday, it's a GROOVEHOUSE rehearsal in Tacoma....that's just the funk...cool, I love the funk, don't you?...I'll have more to share soon, but for now...let's say THE STONEGATE on 5419 South Tacoma Way in Tacoma...is the place to be...O.K?
Now, Sunday, BARTLETT ON BASS again meets with his music high school buddy in Olympia...MIKE KARNES/guitar/bass, he teaches music of course, in the Silverdale area...check him out. Yes, that 'right on/atomic clock'...ANDRE on congas will be with them. I just know, my Steve'll be smiling when he gets home. They're all getting ready for a private gig in February.
That's our music news this week...thanks for reading AND always support local live music....Jan
