BLUZZZ is my [Jan] favorite and this upcoming weekend, BARTLETT ON BASS has TWO  Yep..Two Whole BLUZZZ Gigs in Tacoma, WA. [I'll post more this Friday, when BARTLETT meets and rehearses with these guys and gal on Thursday night. O.K?] He was hired last week and is getting ready today. So, this evening is rehearsal-time, or MY very own live BLUZZZ concert right in our living room. Cool. Love it when gigs come in....love music. BUT, when BLUZZZ folks need my bassman, I'm in a special kinda heaven. this is our special time together.. this rehearsal time.
Then, I gather up all the tunes on YOUTUBE for Steve's reviewing and rehearsing that were Emailed for the gig, below's the set lists for the upcoming gigs. That we'll be doing tonight.
Then, the really fun part.... our musical night together begins....we go through each tune together 'til it's just right. I play the keyboard on the computer, Steve plays the bass. we both have head phones on. Of course, there's plenty of breaks for popcorn, laughing and soda pop.. Those head phones can slide all over the place when we're NOT watching. LOL.
