awesum singer-songwriter nite in Chicago, cheep beer and dark songs about trubbled people – we have loved…..YIKES!!

BIG singer-songwriter success at Silvie’s last nite.  Much thanks to John Kuczaj our host who graciously gave up an Acoustic Explosion Monday nite for our little band of treble makers.

We had four players in the best room for acoustic music in the city.  Dave, the sound guy is the best in the city.  Great at vocal mix.

We had over 20 people mainly known by Rich Wats and his bro Simon.  Nic Barnum and buddy also played.  Pretty much every song was an original.
We cheerfully covered (mainly) territory between dark and very dark!

Apparently, the crowd fav of mine was Her Black, Black Heart.  A pretty tru sory about a woman…..well……

With the graciousness of John and Silvie, we should be doing this again and reaching out to woman/young players and suburbanites.  Yes, it iz safe!!!  Well some of the songz are dangerouez….YIKES!!

Videos will go up soon.  Anyone want to help with that?!

Note:  John K is having a album release party this Friday the 12th at Silvies.  BE THERE OR B SQUARED!!

Hot Projects,Yea, Babee!!: Original “Girls Behind the Bar” Song “Honor the Girls” Project — C’mon and Help Y’all!!

OK, so I am going to market and try to sell the original song “Girls Behind the Bar.” (GBTB)  The song contains a strong marketing concept so I intend to start with a project to create community and  “happening” around the song, story and its ideas.  See the idea brief below.  Here is a link to the song and lyrics.

If you want to help here’s how you can:

  • Need a street team.  There is going to be audio and video production so could use help on those items.
  • Do you know any kool Girls Behind the Bar?  This project wants to celebrate those girls/woman who make our lives a bit easier.  This is NOT a T&A/”Hooters” thang but, heck, they are awful cute.  Who should we include, that you see or know?
  • You know of any potential corporate/venue sponsors?  This is a natural for the booze companies

Doing Good While Doing Well – A priority for the project is to try to generate enough $$$ so we can give grants to bargirls to help pay for or pay off student loans.  That may be a bit pie-in-the-sky but I’m hopin’ it can happen.  [Damn!!!…. Good song title!!]

THIS PROJECT NEEDS YOU SUPPOT AND IDEAS! DUDE!! Join our group and let us know what helps the mission!

“Girls Behind the Bar”  – Honor the Girls Project

Here’s the Song

“Girls Behind the Bar [GBTB] Original Lyrics,  Style:  Country rock – very simple melody and chords. Copyrighted

Verse 1 – So the boss was in a mood today and he told me to leave early
I ain’t gonna get the hours I need and that always makes me surly
So I take my truck to the local joint, where the girls yell “hey there honey!”
High five each girl behind the bar, end up spending all my money

Chorus – So c’mon down, and make ’em proud, they’re our honky-tonk superstars
and raise your glass and yell real loud for the girls behind the barRead More »
