I currently play in two bands, Donna and The Mystics as their Bass player and Vocals and my band The Silver Eagle Band and Rhythm Guitarist and Lead Vocals. Between the two band I play almost every weekend and some gigs during the summer during the week. I like playing music, Its fun and relaxing all while producing good music. They say you are only as good as your worst musician, that is why I try to surround myself with Musicians who are better than I. :)
Music to me is making memories, friends and enjoyment.
To do a song with Hank Jr or Jamey Johnson
The Games People Play, It was the first song I ever learned with my Father who was a musician for over 50 years.
Hank Jr, Jamey Johnson, Cody Jinks, Bobby Bare, Waylon Jennings
The Applause - The Crowd letting you know that you are doing okay. I like that feeling.
In this world of the Politically Correct, I want folks to know its "Okay" to have fun and dance and enjoy themselves without being judged.
Everyone sounds the same, its hard to tell who is who anymore. Be Different, I watched Americas Got Talent this year and I really enjoyed Courtney Hadwin not because she was super great but because she was different. She lost but I see now she has signed a recording deal.
So Far So Good.
Equipment Failures, Members that come to practice unprepared!
Yes I do, If I am not playing, I am usually out listening to other bands in the area. I enjoy hearing different music. One can always learn something from watching another frontman or musician.
Be Different and be SURE what you are putting out sounds GOOD!
