This blog is inspired by the trials of starting a band, choosing a name, and booking gigs… It’s very similar to being in any relationship… it starts out casual like a mountain bike ride and a coffee, or in this case, a casual jam, playing a few tunes, having a beer, and some fun… As you get into it, you start asking, “how much time do i want to spend playing these songs? do we all get along? and am I good enough?… then booking gigs… haggling with bar managers, begging for a platform to make tips… etc… It reminds one of the daily grind of a love-relationship… “did you buy laundry detergent, and who got the dog out? ”  Where is that smart hottie with whom I shared that latte?  And that fun talented singer who jammed out on my original song and made it sound like it belonged on the radio…?  Well…. they are still right there!!!!! That spark is always in reach, and the important part of any relationship whether it be Lover, Work Associate, Friend, Family, Teammate or Bandmate, is that age-old remedy… BEER.    haha… only partially kidding though.  Of course, just being willing to talk it out, hug it out, shake if off, whatever methods you’all use to get back to that thrilling experience of seeing the other person’s beauty again.  Don’t let it fester, and don’t give up!  It’s easy, just practice.  Love you all!  Oh, and HEY HEY WE’RE THE… ?? Tune in next week… we just might have a name:)
