Quick Hits

It is probably just a ‘quick hits’ today….not a lot of news, and I am working on the flip side to ‘The Rant’ post on a particularly good live playing situation.

I am pleased to say I have just heard from Harmonica Hank from The Rocking George band. HH is a hell of a player, and a nicer guy to boot. Having endured countless questions from yours truly about technique, who he listened to and his choice of gear Hank still politely declined my offered shot of Cabo Reposado as a ‘thank you’ for his time. A true gentleman. Please don’t worry about the stray shot of Cabo, I downed his too.

Rocking George will be back at The Georgetown Grille (http://www.georgetowngrille.com/) (19 W Main Street) on August 1st. In spite of numerous requests from one guy (yup, me again) they don’t know any William Clarke, but HH has the chops to pull Clarke licks all night long for those assembled (and disassembled as it were)….

Check ‘em out and tell them Georgetown Fats sent ya.

Anyone in the Haverhill/Bradford area should check out the Tuesday night blues jam at The Roma. It has been a few months since I have had a chance to get there, but I hear from Johnny B of The Coup DeVille Band a lot and it sounds like it is taking off in their new location.

And on a very final note it looks as though ‘Boom Boom’ Sullivan will have to take considerable time away from music in order to deal with carpal tunnel. The Growlers will miss Boom Boom, it is not often we’re actually a good influence for someone. Nothing but the best Boom Boom, thanks for being there with us in the beginning.
