This past Thursday I found myself back at Whiskey John's playing with Tamin' Thunder. This time I got to replace their guitar player, Lorne, who was in Jamaica (it must be nice to go somewhere that's warm). Now it is official, I have played every instrument in this band at one time or another. I joked with Ilse, the lead singer, and told her she was next.
The night was also a bit of a celebration for the band as they just received hot off the presses their debut CD. The CD is entitled Good As Gold. The album is made up of 10 original titles which showcases the band's talent of playing great straight up Rock music that we don't find much of these days especially with a female lead singer. Nowadays you would over-produce the album and layer it with machines and computers (the poison to music). These guys do not do this. Real musicians playing music, what a concept. Again the album is great and I send out my congratulations. For those reading this click on the picture. It will take you to their website. If you have time check them out.
It looks like we are coming to the end of 2011. As I write this I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. If you don't celebrate Christmas then Happy Holidays, and I wish everyone a Happy New Year.
