Introduction & Anniversary

Postby Grateful Dad » Thu May 13, 2010 10:53 am

Greetings everyone! I have been using discussion board for almost a year now without introducing myself first. My name is Dave and I am a happily married husband and a father of two young boys. My family means everything to me, hence my posting name "Grateful Dad".

I play bass in a new band called Honeystone. Our first gig is in two weeks. My previous band broke up last December up after a long run. We did originals, Dead, Allmans, blues, mixed things up, had a good harp player, and a sax player, and we always avoided the cliched standard cover tunes that many bands do, and the tunes we did cover we did our way. We had fun playing, I miss the good old days (not the end days).

I have a Tobias 5 string, Mesa 400+ power head, and a Mesa 4x10 cabinet that I sometimes use with an SWR 18" cabinet for "the feel".

I know plenty of Dead, my favorite tunes to play are Terrapin, Estimated, Playing in the Band, Ship of Fools....the list goes on it's all so GOOD! I can be available for jams too.

I enjoy checking the discusson board and reading all the interesting stuff, checking out the videos, the instruction tabs, this is a cool site and I'm honored to be among the faithful.

BTW today is the thirty second anniversary of my first show!!

Thanks for the welcome Rusty!

Mesa is worth every penny, their bass stuff is built like a brick shithouse. I never thought four 10"s could get such good lows until I tried it.

The gig is long awaited. The last time I played out was December.

I don't know what's worse going without sex or gigging (can't live without either one) :lol:
