Give Thanks for Gigs

Herewith, a look into the near McMusical future!

Friday, October 28
Eric took a nasty spill
Eric is recovering still

The Sparks Band’s bass player and lead singer Eric Goetz, is better, but not yet well enough to get back on the mic for the band’s gig at Chiefs on October 27. Which is why Tom will be there in his stead, helping to keep the Sparks musical wayback machine’s 60s setting functional. It’s an early show (6:30 to 9:30), so best hustle yer bustle down there.

Big Wes’s guitar player, Gary
is still under repair-y.

With Gary Hendrickson near wrapping up recuperation, and with first-call fill-in Billy Flynn off on tour, Big Wes Turner’s Trio calls on Mark Loder and Rich Larson of the above mentioned Sparks Band to rock the Essen Haus on the first Thursday of the month. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a whole lot of 60s.

Billy Big On Bier Booting

Woe is us. Wisconsin weather remains tenaciously balmy (for October), and the skeeters just won't die.

Looks like we'll just have to join Big Wes Turner's Trio and participate in the time-honored tradition of imbibing bier by the Boot at Ye Olde Essen Haus (see below).
