Having an afternoon band practice and celebrating a good friends birthday...can it get any better? Well...yes...as the afternoon faded into night and we all converged on The Rusty Cactus Grill and Cantina to enjoy the live music of BACKSEAT MOLLY...yes it did!!! It ROCKED!! My band (the LOST GYPSIES) have been working our butts off trying to get our set together for our very first gig coming up in October. Its a lot of work..but a lot of fun at the same time..especially this last Saturday afternoon practice we had, with friends on hand to let us know what they think of the new band. And since it was LuLu's Birthday, there was a bit of drink involved..(maybe too much. lol) Needless to say, after practice, we all met back up at the Cactus to have some food, and hear Backseat Molly. Soon the joint was a packed house as Steven and the guys rocked the walls down. As the night rolled on, Steven motioned me up on stage to join in vocals on a song....I was like, "who ME??!!" It was a very cool feeling to be on stage with those guys...a real honor. All the guys in BACKSEAT MOLLY..Steven, Brenden, Heath, Brennen, and Trevor, are all awesome musicians and all around nice guys. They were recently victims of theft, and thousands of dollars worth of equiptment was stolen...including their drum kit (notice in the photo, The Bigsbys were nice enough to let them borrow their kit.) Its good to see they did'nt let that stop them from staying on top...and its good to see other local musicians supporting them through it all. I look forward to the next time I get the oppertunity to see them play again. And my good friend LuLu...she had an outstanding Birthday too. I was going to write this blog the very next day...but...I was sorta comatose for about 48 hours there after...not so much sleeping...just suffering..which means, "It was a great weekend!!"...and it was well worth it and I am ready to do it again. Gypsy~On!!!
