A Word from Nick:
So you are wondering how it went for us Friday over at Bamboo Bob's? Well, to that question I would give you this analogy: have you ever stuck your hands in a bowl of warm water......yeah ... it feels good, don't it? Well, those were my feeling Friday night at Bamboo Bob's. Hell, it was a whole 55 gallon bucket of warm water for me. Now, let me tell you why. Well, for starters our sound guys Chris and Brian were already set up and waiting for us by the time we got there. This was a good thing because of the fact that the last time we played here we had a great looking P.A., only to have one problem... it wasn't working! Anyways, I don't want to dwell on the past cuz I would rather tell you about this time around.

So, it is was about nine o'clock now and we decide to start getting changed and, ya know, transform into Cherry Pie. Well, Jasmine could not make the show that night because I think that she was giving a clinic called "HAIRSPRAY AND YOU" at the local beauty shop. So, we needed someone to take over on hair-duty for the night. So we asked long time friends of the band Stacy and Sheila to help out. These two lovely ladies have seen the band play so many times that they have got a better than average idea on how we are supposed to look. Ya know, one thing that hit me as we were back in the dressing room was that I sure was glad that they were there because I remember this one time when we had no Jasmine and absolutely no one to do hair. So Johnny tells me, "Well, I got some hairspray, just flip your head over and spray the hell out of it." So I did - and, of course, it looked ridiculous! Well, then he comes over and starts playing with my hair trying to fluff it and make it somewhat cool. Let me tell you this my friends, when he was done I have never wanted to watch a monster truck race, talk about motors or look at power tools more than I did at the moment - anything to remind myself that I'm a man, baby! And what the hell is this guy doing touching my hair!? So, thanks again Stacy and Sheila.

From there its like ten o'clock now and we're ready to go on and you knew right away that it was going to be a great night when as soon as we walked at out of the dressing room (AKA broom closet) people started cheering. So, we're jamming and having a good time, everything is sounding good and then about halfway through our first song I take a look around at he audience and I thought to myself, "Hey, this place is a full blown meat market!" I'll tell you there was hot chicks all over the place and these women were out of control. It was like a knife sharpening convention with all the grinding that was going on that night, and you know one advantage to not using pyro that night was that we allowed these devil women to come on stage whenever they felt like it. Probably people who were seeing the band for the first time had to think "Man, this is like a 35 piece band!." I think that every guy in the band had all that they could handle to keep playing while all of this sexual emotion was going on. I tell you what - I caught Old Trucker honkin' his horn a couple of times while Dawn was givin him a little of the boot scootin' boogie and from my personal side of things, I gotta tell you, there was a couple of times I forced myself to think of baseball so that I could keep swinging all night, if you know what I mean.

Until next time,
- Jack Hammer
