Gino's Pub 10-02-2012 Tuesday we had a first. Karen did Bill Wither's "Use Me". It came out good. It's different groove than what we have done in the past, so it should be a keeper. Allan Hatten was there for the first hour and added a lot of tastey licks to the tunes. I had fun on the first tune "Josephine". Allan and I traded licks, it was a nice exchange. Even Paula got a few in. It was off the cuff, but all-right.
Gino's Pub 9-25-2012 Here's the recording from Tuesday 9-25-2012. Paula Stewart called all the tunes and lead the group. She had an enjoyable banter that lead one song to the next. It had the feel of an organized show. It put a smile on everyone's face. She made sure everyone had a chance to perform and that there was a good variety of music. There's a good chance we may have a monthly "Paula's Night"
Gino's Pub 9-18-2012 Gino's Pub with Chris Sutton and Mike Lyzenga. Surprise closing song of Watchtower
Gino's Pub 9-04-2012 Darrell Brown was in the house to do some great traditional playing.
Gino's Pub 8-22-2012 A fine Tuesday night recording. Brian Salters and Allan Hatten were there to add to the blowing. Katona sang Summertime for the first time. Mike Murrell came out of the country to join us. It was a night of all blues tunes, with a brief review of the Harmonica Quadrathlon tunes near the end
Gino's Pub 8-07-2012 Tom Cannon's"whammy night" (if you weren't there, you gotta listen to understand) Barbara James first time to do Ray Charles' "You Don't Know Me"
Gino's Pub 7-24-2012 Here's the recording from Tuesday. There was a lot of energy in the air. The opening tune is "Cluck Old Hen", something we picked up at Augusta Blues Week from Grant Dermody. Allan Hatten is back in town and stopped by to play on a few tunes. We also did Suzy Q for the first time in YEARS.
Gino's Pub 7-03-2012
Gino's Pub 6-26-2012
Gino's Pub 6-19-2012 A few new tunes from Tuesday. Barbara James did a rocking job of "I Hear You Knockin". Later Karen Combs did an original slow blues called "Bad Dog"
Gino's Pub 6-05-2012 Very good Tuesday night. David Payne visited for the first time. Then at 8, Allan Hatten came for his first time to The Pub. Bill sat in on the drums while Brent was doing work at his church. There are some wonderful harp licks in there, so give it a listen. You'll also hear Grace Kaun sing 2 tunes.
Gino's Pub 5-22-2012 Tuesday night went smooth, even though Tom Cannon and Karen Combs were missing. Allen Loudin and Katona were there to fill the guitar parts. Lenny Poage brought a beginner friend named Danny Duncan. Danny did a FINE job on the 5 minute lesson. Chris Sutton played the first 2 songs of the 2nd set. His rendition of "Ain't Nobody's Buisness If I Do" was more than a simple 1-4-5- progression. Even Brian Salters made an appearance. Overall, we had a good mix and a good crew.
Gino's Pub 5-01-2012 Lenny Pooge took the 5 minute lesson, and did a good job. We hope to see him again. Towards the end, we had at least one or two enthusiastic people watching and giving hoops and hollers at the end of tunes
Gino's Pub 4-24-2012 A smooth Tuesday night. A nice recording. We had Bill sit in as a guest drummer. We did our first take on the tune Minnie the Moocher
Gino's Pub 4-17-2012 Tuesday 4-17-2012 felt like a party, It felt like MY BIRTHDAY party. I was honored with a plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies from Tom Cannon (well actually, his wife made them) There was also a small chocolate cake and a pint of ice cream. Add the pizza and drinks, there was nothing else a guy could ask for. We had a good crew show up. We even had Chris Sutton and Brian Salters there to perform a few tunes
Gino's Pub 4-3-2012 We got the band back together. Barbara James was back, this time being lead by her new 4 legged 2 year old friend named Tessa. All the ladies of the club were there. Even Brian Salters was there for a few tunes. We even had a second Tom Cannon play drums. This second Tom's full name is Tom Cannon Berry. It was an upbeat evening of music.
Gino's Pub 3-28-2012 Tuesday was good. Tom has a new Elvis song. "Don't Be Cruel"
Gino's Pub 3-13-2012 Another good time at The Pub. Due to a game at 9:15 we lost 15 minutes of fun. We stopped at 8:30, but played straight through, non-stop. Katona did 2 songs, so did Karen. Tom sang Big Bossman
Gino's Pub 3-06-2012 Fun time, Wednesday night. Lot's of people got to sing and make music. Here's the recording. My guest Stacey, from Iowa, took the 5 minute lesson
Gino's Pub 2-28-2012 Here's the recording from Tuesday at Gino's Pub. We tried a few new things, but by Saturday, I've forgotten what they were. But I had a good time and so did the rest of the crew
Gino's Pub 2-07-2012 Good news and bad news. The good news is, here's a recording from Tuesday Feb 7th, The bad news I just listened and I HAVE TO delete some of it. Barbara James' Swanee Boogie was great until I tried to play along. I'm going to edit and re-load to spare other people a waste of time
Gino's Pub 1-24-2012 24-2012 Kate sings her song, Karen sings Roll the Dice, Grace sings
Gino's Pub 1-17-2012 Nice evening with a 10 year old boy named Nate Goodwin coming with his Grandmother to watch the Club. He got some instruction and we played some songs in the key of D for him to follow. Al (one of the founding fathers of the group) was there, he is turning 93 soon and still playing. We did some songs that we had not performed before and some that maybe only once or twice, some may be keepers, who knows.Karen sang a few tunes. Kate also sang a tune for the first time in a long time.
