My INXS Tribute band Devil INXSide had our 2nd post-Covid gig this past Friday night at the historic Oriental Theater here in Denver to a capacity crowd.  Just another spectacular show and the response we're getting is amazing!  Folks really missed live music and dig INXS even more than I thought they would! 😁

Bonus points for including "Heading Out to the Highway."  One of the all-time best tunes to try out a Marshall or similar amp.

The backline was the other bands stuff. I played my pod go thru his plexi (not the friedman), sounded fantastic

 

I will wear shorts if playing outside during the day like BoogieMKIIA's gig.

Damn straight. I live in SE PA and we've done outdoor shows that were too f-ing hot to be bothered with some inane notion of proper gig attire. Outdoors gig when the temp is over 80 degrees? Fuggit. Shorts fo' sho'.

Great seeing all these.  I sweat so much in the heat, shorts don't make much of a difference, so I go with the long pants.  I played a gig years ago in front of the Hard Rock in Baltimore.  It was over 90 degrees.  The only one who had a problem was the drummer because he was pounding drinks and no water.  He nearly passed out.  Fortunately, one guy's son is a good drummer, so he took over.

Back in the early 80s I played with a drummer named Mike. Great drummer, but he was also, shall we say, a bit overweight. I'm tellin' ya, that boy could eat. Watching him consume a whole large pizza by himself was like watching tree limbs being thrown into a wood chipper.

In the summer of 1983 we played an outdoor festival in Sulphur, Louisiana - and if you've ever been to southwest Louisiana in the summertime you know that it's not only hot but very, very humid.

At some point during our set I looked back at Mike - who had blond hair and a very light complexion - and his face, neck and head were a bright crimson red. He had an odd, glazed-over expression on his face. I remember calmly thinking, "He's gonna die. Right here, today, on this stage."

Somehow, miraculously, he made it through the day, but I honestly don't know how.

The gigs are slowly coming back. Here's a shot from last Saturday night (with my '90 Archtop).

I've got another one (with my other band) scheduled for this Saturday, but it's outside and the way the weather forecast looks right now it might be rained out. This November and December we'll be venturing back indoors for the first time since before COVID.

Just played tonight, with my Studio Custom. The Jerry’s restaurant in Paris, KY is celebrating their 60th year in business. This Is my third gig since the first post, three different bands, with the group pictured playing this coming Saturday. A busy summer ahead.  This band is Robert Eskridge and Southern Daze, a single titled “Glasses Up” coming out Friday.

It's great to be back out playing.  A couple pics, first is one of our local haunts in Boise and the other is from an out of town gig at the Mill Iron Ranch in Jackson Wyoming.  Cool place, got to play for the locals and the horses, cows, deer, bears and maybe some trout. Best stage ever if you're in to animal parts hanging on the wall.

Also, looking at these is weird.  They go from newest to oldest starting back just before I got this stent to Friday night.  I've lost like 30 pounds over that time, so it's like a spring retrospective on the size of my gut.

Love outdoor shows in the summertime. The local Parks and Rec dept does a summer concert series at the beach. The CRS Band’s 4th time on the bill. Fun night.

Oh, nice!  My phone wouldn’t zoom in enough to see it that well. Looked like a Studio but now that I know and go back to the original pic, I can see it now. Jealous…
