So, I "sat in" (played drums) for one set with Jamin (upright bass), Luke (electric guitar) and McLane (sax and floot) (aka The Trio of 3) at Costello's (over on about 23rd and NE Broadway) last night. It was pretty fun. 99% original instrumental light swing/loungey/bossanova/cocktail music. Everybody loved it, and so it looks like I'll probably be playing with them more. The one cover we did was Watermelon Man, which goes like "ba ba ba, pa da da do do dada, ba ba ba da da da do do da" etc. The thing is, everybody hates the band name "The Trio of 3". Especially me. So, if anybody has ideas for the new band(which will be 4 of us)'s name, please suggest here, by posting a comment.
Also, when I first parked and was unloading my drums, I'm pretty sure there was a drive-by shooting about a block away. Gunshots + speeding cars = drive-by, right?
