Quiet before the storm

Today is Sunday and as I am getting over a cold my son is building with Mega Blocks and my daughter is quietly reading in her room.  The wife still sleeps and who can blame her after the busy Thanksgiving we hosted. We had friends over and what a great time.  Anyway before I go make breakfast I realized next weekend we have two gigs and then another the following Sunday.  Not to mention all sorts of other events and parties as December descends upon us.  I am content to watch the son build for now and scramble up some eggs for the kids. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and if you can come see the Poochamungas play next weekend. Saturday December 6th at the Apollo Recreation Center in Alsip for Santas Landing. Also Sunday December 7th at the Marina Grand in New Buffalo, MI for the Teddy Bear TeaHave a great Sunday and may you survive the upcoming Xmas season with your sanity intact!

Teddy Bear Tea Time

teddy bear teaBack in 2010 I received a call from the Marina Grand Resort asking my band to play a Christmas gig at their hotel.  It seems they had another band in mind and when that didn’t work out this other bands manager referred them to us (networking and kindness pay off) and we being available said yes. It’s a great hotel right on the New Buffalo Harbor.  The event itself is really cool.  Afternoon tea service, Santa and then the rockin’ finish with the Poochamungas.   The event costs 10 dollars and a donation of one unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots.  All this happens on December 8th, 2013 at 1pm.  It is a two hour event.  So click the link below or call 269.469.9900.  We hope to see you there.

Bass lines and Holiday gig

Bass_clef_(PSF)Today in a diner that I was having lunch in with my son (he ate like a champ) the music was hard to hear but the bass line was quite audible. Occasionally you could here the melody over the noise of the room. So I think I am listening to the bass line to America from Simon and Garfunkel… Wrong.  I was listening to Piano Man by Billy Joel.  Didn’t see that coming.  There were a few others including Queen with Crazy Little Thing Called Love but it was interesting how my brain would instantly fill in the words and melody in their absence.   Anyway…
