Well all the recording on the new CD is finally done. We are now mixing. So it won’t be long till the finished CD is available to the world. Once it’s done, look for us to start playing gigs. Bob & Page played a faculty picnic in Simi last Sunday. I unfortunately couldn’t make it due to a previous commitment with another band. But I did happen to make it to the picnic as they were packing up the gear. So I guess I did make the gig, sort of. I promise you all that I will not be missing anymore MCTC gigs in the future. We actually rehearsed last Tuesday and what a blast it was. Since I’m the new guy here we have to run through the old MCTC tunes because, although I’ve heard them numerous times, I’ve never played them on the drums before. So it’s learning new songs for me. That’s my favorite part of playing drums. Learning new tunes. I hope I do them justice because I tend to put my own creativity into my playing. I’m sure if I go too “Neil Peart” on them, Bob & Page will reel me back in. We are going to play some after-summer rooftop party that’s going to be a kick. I can’t wait for that. Also, we are almost done with “The Bowlwinders” CD. Now that is an experience! Those songs are unbelievably hilarious. It’s hard to keep a straight face listening to those tunes. Keep checking back for more updates.
See ya, David
