    I got back from vacation and got a message from a bass player I know that
    one of the areas musical icons, Dave Brosky, wanted me to come over to his
    rehearsal space and play a bit. This guy has been recording and playing
    here for 20 years. Apparently he's tired of working with a "pickup band"
    that never rehearsed enough to put together a tight show and hence charged
    the bass player with helping him form a new permanent group. Last night I
    went over and we all had a blast. Music ranging from R&B, reggae, swing,
    and rock both originals and original treatment covers. It felt great to
    stretch out a bit from the classic rock/ blues stuff I've been doing for the
    last two years. Don't tell anybody, but I actually had the brushes out!!!

    Well this morning I got a call from the bass player and we discussed the
    business end a bit. But the bottom line is that both he and Steve want me
    in. We start rehearsal next week working toward the gigs he has scheduled
    starting in October. Great area clubs, some big shows and festivals as well
    as private parties plus more recording.

    I just wanted to tell y'all (I just got back from Tennessee and Kentucky).
