this should be interesting!!!! it's from Brother Les

Remember to mark your calendar for this coming Friday evening, at 6:00pm, January 2, 2004 for Sal's 18th birthday celebration..a somewhat informal party however, there is a good probability that this could turn into a trans-generational music extravaganza consisting of musicians ranging in age from 16 to 50+ years. To say it could prove to be interesting might be an understatement....there will be food and drink as well...how can you go wrong?????????

did he say food ??????

that was a cool night,, there's so much talent in that family!!!
When I first got there,, they had on the Beacon DVD of James Taylor........looks mucho different... than when the ABB plays there


Les - 1/8/2004 at 02:04 AM

Well it was a fine time indeed! It was nice bringing some new blood (Dave) into the circle too!

Glad everyone enjoyed themselves!

Thanks!

ps: wait til the summer kicks in and the dock parties start up on Narragansett Bay!

we got a great little place in Carolina RI.. called the Hope Valley pub.... and gonna be there sundays


Dusty - 3/7/2004 at 01:41 PM

just got this from Brother Les....
Sal and his mates took another second place finish in their division against over 250 competing schools from all over the world. Gotta’ take a second to brag a little here……..this was Sal’s last year competing at Berklee and he picked up a Judges Choice award for a jazz trio that he and a couple of his mates put together on their own.
..... guess the apple dont fall far from the tree

seems for a fun band of friends just jammin' we been playing a real lot.... every weekend ,,, a different place..... and now starting to get paid and eat,,, which is.....good,,, but we just want to play.... and do what we want.....so the idea...of doing paying ggis ,, don't sit well with some of the guys....cause they think ,, that they will lose the freedom and flexibility of doing and trying anything... hhmmm maybe they dont understand the concept...of the jambands ....lol


Les - 7/30/2004 at 12:59 AM

Hey Brother Dusty!!!!!

We've had the whole thing under wraps for so long and now it seems like folks are enjoying what they're hearing!

It's all good for me! I've done plenty of playin' to packed houses, along with my fair share of playin' to nothing' but tables and chairs. Doesn't really matter much. It's all about the music! If folks are likin' it, so much the better!!!!


Dusty - 8/1/2004 at 10:08 AM

You Got it!!! Brother Les the old empty room tour no more .... I was thinking we have kinda a wall of sound thing going with the guitars,, a nice mix between the acoustic and electric.....
