Meenar’s on August 20

Another warm summer night at Meenar music club in Danville.

This the was the first time we played our 50’s block together- Johnny B. Goode and Come On, Let’s Go – and what an awesome response!  Everyone was up dancing- even John’s parents got out on the dance floor.  We definitely need to add more 50’s tunes to our set.

A few more highlights:    Burn Rubber by the Gap Band.  Great seeing everyone funkin’ out- and Scott Sears doing the robot!     Aerosmith’s Sweet Emotion – by special request from Lynn deMoor- with John playing the talk box for the first time.   And Sublime’s What I Got- an instant favorite – though Gary had to mumble a few of the lyrics to avoid offending the seniors in the crowd Smile

Before the show, at sound-check, we tried out Kiss’ Rock and Roll All Nite, which we had never actually played all the way through before.  We destroyed it so thoroughly that our buddy John Persinger- unofficial representative of Kiss Nation- informed us that it was completely unacceptable.  Don’t worry John, we’ll get it next time!

Thanks everyone for coming out and staying up late on a Tuesday night!
