    It really is. A couple hundred people with great sound and you can go in and out so you can burn one (or more �� ). They get some killer shows there, we have a few more lined up before the end of the year.

    Kind of like the old Pastime Pub I guess, I got an open beer ticket there once walking out the front door with a beer while a cop was sitting at the light. He told me to go inside and finish my beer and he'd have my ticket ready when I was done.

    I heard that Jeff is going to do a reunion show with the Zen Tricksters in November, He wasn't in the original Volunteers and the Zen Tricksters didn't start until the mid 80's but I think'79 was about the time he and Bob Strano joined the band (Bob Miller may have been in the band already).

    Yeah I'm hoping to be there. You should make the effort too. I don't know the early history of the band, I wasn't around for that (too young) but do remember the name floating around.

    I'm going to try to be there, I missed seeing the Stray Cats at the old Pastime Pub a few weeks ago and there were a lot of people there I would have like to have seen again (they auditioned there 40 years ago and never got the job), from what I was told it was a lot of fun (but without the never ending bottles of Jack Daniels being passed around).

    I didn't hear about that or I might have tried especially if Brian Setzer was with them. I didn't appreciate them at the time but grew to later.

    I saw a post from Tom that Rob Baracco (sp?) will be with the Tricksters for this show. There will probably be other friends and guests around too.

    The Stray Cats were a fun band and Brian's a great guitarist, had a gf in at least one of their videos. There were a few very good rockabilly bands back then including Freddy Frog's and the BMT's, Tommy Burns of the BMT's has been Billy Joel's Guitarist for over 20 years now (he also played with the SC's). The BMT's were actually a better band but they did mostly did covers and heavy drinking was part of every night (one member used to put on his conductors uniform in the bar bathroom at 4am walk to the train station and get on the train). There's quite a few people from that crowd who aren't around anymore.

    The drummer in this video is Louie Appel, who was also the drummer for Debbie Gibson and Taylor Dane, He always enjoyed a bottle of Jack and his head would get lower and lower as the night went on, but he never missed a beat, he was a great drummer. This is not long before he died.



    I don't know who from the original Volunteers (or second version) will be there, Bob Strano Never liked the Dead much (and Deadheads even less), And Bob Miller died 15 or 20 years ago (he did a great PigPen imitation and drank just as hard), Jim and Billy will probably show though. I never saw them with the two other original members (before Jeff and Strano) and don't know if they would show.
