Rye Grill & Bar 1/9/14: Post-Mortem

When I come home, cold and tired, it’s good to warm my bones beside the fire…“– ‘Time,’ Pink Floyd

Thank you, all of you, who braved the polar vortex to come rock out with us at the Rye Grill & Bar! Let’s not mix words, it was really fucking cold that night. So cold, in fact, that Jake himself didn’t make it to the show since the door to his cabin in the mountains was frozen shut. Whatever, he always seems to have some excuse.

The crowd response was a bit ‘chilly’ during the first set, but towards the end of the evening everyone seemed to be catching that warm and fuzzy feeling that Jake was churning out. However, by that point the band was out of material and began to take requests. “Rhiannon!” shouted an overzealous fan (who likely just saw Stevie Nicks’ cameo in the most recent episode of American Horror Story: Coven). Jake obliged. Yes, we freakin’ played Rhiannon. (Well, sort of.) But who are we to say no?

While it did eventually take an interpretive dance from Mussels to warm up the crowd, hearing them chant “ONE MORE SONG!” at the end of the night concluded the show on a high note.

We’ll see y’all again when this frost has finally melted! Cheers!

The Cos Cobber 11/2/13: Post-Mortem

We at Jake consider Pete, our live sound engineer, to be a full-fledged band member. If you were at the show this past weekend you probably learned that Pete was on vacation- and well, we really missed him!

The show was off to a somewhat rocky start as no able-bodied individuals could figure out how to get sound coming out of Pete’s board. After pressing every combination of buttons we could think of (including frantically texting and calling Pete) we eventually figured out a hack that worked pretty well. Massive props go to Mike Griffiths for running sound for us in Pete’s absence. He was dealt a pretty shitty bad hand and handled it well- with a few beers and a big smile.

After a “fashionably late” start, we got right into the business of hard rocking. Acoustic guitars can’t hold Jake back from melting faces [photo gallery]! The venue was packed with our regular fans and quite a few locals who, admittedly, may have only stuck around to see if we’d ever be able to get the sound system working… Nonetheless, we made some brand new fans, rocked hard, and played loudly- the only way we know how.

Jake!

Rye Grill & Bar 8/1/13: Post-Mortem

What a great reunion this turned out to be! The band hadn’t played an official live show since 2009, and this was the first time doing an acoustic set in front of a large audience. The crowd tried to eat their food and pretend like we were background music, but by the time we busted out “It’s the End of the World…” they couldn’t resist jumping out of their seats to dance and sing along with us. The energy level never dropped and we were begged for encores. We obliged.

Jake forever.

We needed time to reflect on last week’s show. No that’s not true, we just forgot to post about it. Why? Cuz we were too tired on Sunday. If you were at the show you know why.
