InConcert at 4th Floor Blues Club in Richmond, IN


   Pretty Boy's Corner

August 8, 2009

This is also the second year that we have been a part of the InConcert Series at the 4th Floor Club in Richmond, Indiana thanks to Rick Parker. It is a part of a fundraiser program that the club and its supporters put on to raise money for different charities and programs in their community. I believe this particular night was dedicated to the Boys and Girls clubs in the area. The club is on the 4th Floor (obviously) of an old brick industrial building that houses a hardware concern, a great Italian store/restaurant and who knows what else.

There was an opening act called the Trojans that played some great music that ranged from blues to classic rock. It's been a long time since I've heard Fresh Air by Quicksilver Messenger Service. They did a good version of this song. The guitar player was Dave who also supplied the sound system for the evening. Thanks. I only wish that we had miked the drums and put my bass in the house mix. This was a bad decision on our part because Kevin had to play harder and it made it more difficult for the bass and drums to lock in together, but when something like this happens you have to go on blind faith and hope that all is well out in the house. Apparently it was. Dave's son, Mike, was the bass player for the Trojans. Not a nicer bunch of guys will you ever meet. They were very enthusiastic and Mike and I got to talk a lot about my favorite subject, bass. It turns out that Dave has been playing with the Trojans since 1963 in the local Richmond area. Wow! When you think about it they have been working under this name as long as the Rolling Stones have been working under their name. Talk about longevity. Way to go guys. Thanks for having us and we hope to see you next year.
