off to a
Bruce Forman: (38 people)
well, here we go. this year we have
about four times as many people playing as last time. oh well,
I hope they’ve got the steam for the full hang…we’ll
man…. the songs are goin… it’s alright…
but we stay too much in the comfort zone… the last piece
we played, the latin on, was kinda slow it coulda been faster
and dance like but overall I’m loving this feel. this is
my first year and so far so good
Too many people! Lots of on-lookers, and tons of players. I have
never seen such a big sax that chris was playing! I lie, I have.
but hey, the computers free. we even have Dudley , Bruce’s
dog here with us. alas, I must go, for I may miss some of the
fun fun fun D to B flat song!
After some rambunctious offerings, we settled into an acoustic
thing with a few old tunes: Chinatown, I got rhythm, and Black
Orpheus, and I can hear it building up…hope it holds...after
all, the police station is next door…yikes! chris brought
in some actual arrangements, I think we’ll ascend into some
organized happenings here, before the next onslaught…stay
Freedman: - 8:26
it’s been about an hour and 20 minutes in so far, and we
have quite a crowd here. The music’s hot, we’ve got
our mascot Dudley here, and Michael Weisman and I are glad to
see a surplus of food building up. It’s all good here, more
Mckendry: - 8:46 (47 people!!!)
Yummmmmmm…. food. amazingly, the chocolate has already…
Disappeared!! Who’s the culprit? Anyway, there is a lot
of good food here. rumor has it there is a cake in hiding somewhere.
mmmmmm… CAKE!!! Another rumor--- PIZZA!!! too bad I have
already eaten… oh well. Shovel Blues is playing now, and
hopefully Cold Duck Time is on it’s way. but it looks like
other people want to use the computer so I wont keep you.:D
Mckendry: - 8:57
Wild schmild! whatever. the drums are rockin out to a 123 beat
and the trumpet is, once again, going WILD!!! Nothing much more
to report except for the fact that all these people keep coming
in and looking over my shoulder! but anyway, this is a lot of
fun, my first time doing it, and I hope not my last!!
Chris Lopez: - 9:05
well… we just got done with like a six song set… not
quite feelin tired… yet my throat is feeling a bit sore
from groanin pretty much a 10-15 minute blues song and yeah…
we did this like totally awesome shuffle-blues in F it was tre
cool I can’t wait to see what the rest of the time brings
23 hours to go
Anna Mckendry: - 9:10
Arent I glad im not staying all night? Hahaha. but anyway. people
are starting to be like me--- loading up on CHOCOLATE!! some day
I will be addicted, so enjoy non-hyper anna while you can. Anna
likes talking of herself like Elmo does. Because anna thinks elmo
rocks. Because he does. J shuffle blues are I bit down beat, but
they are still very nice. right now the “Carmel Kids”
are playing; I’m not sure what though…
I’m tired!!!!!! I am eating lots of chocolate! was, anyhow.
I love the word “anyhow” It’s such a cool word
and nobody ever says it. Anyhow,(there’s that word again!!!)
The music is getting softer. It’s 9:22. yep. It’s
only that early and yet I am tired. I guess it’s all the
air hockey I’ve been playing.
Mckendry: - 9:31
Bruce just told us we have to be quiet. yay! no offense, but some
times guitars get a bit loud (don’t hurt me Bruce! I didn’t
mean it!). so here comes a “Father and Son” jam. Rumor
has it that there is a duo somewhere, but I am not sure if that
is true. Gabe and his father it turns out ARE the Father and Son
duo. sounds quite good. pizza has arrived and is very tasty! yay!
I like the duet. The piano and the guitar go together very well.
40 people here right now…including me!
I am so glad I came to bop til you drop. I thought it was so cool
to play the drums in front of everybody tonight I love JAZZMASTERS!
Mckendry: - 10:07
So long see everybody tomorrow. I have to go and we haven’t
even played COLD DUCK TIME!!! WAAHHH! oh well. Dudley (mascot)
is getting sleepy but has the smell of pizza stuck in his head
and will not let go of it. he is sure he will find some pizza
some where somehow. but anyway. tomorrow I will dominate being
the perky person! Muahahaha! Mutilation! anyway I had my pizza
and now my mom is nagging me to go so I have to! I will see everybody
around 6 pm tomorrow! byebye for now!
The pizza is REALLY GOOD!!! I’m
having a great time and I really mean GREAT !!! I am having a
good time with my best bud ,alex schramm his dad takes the time
to drive us hear every Monday in the schramm mobile.
Swift: - 10:33
The dim light of the laptop is nearly all that remains as the
small combo of denis, chris, and bruce finish a small set. The
crowd sits in awe as they breathe in the soft exhalations from
chris’ lush brassy cooing. The sound of a distant air hockey
game acts as the crackling fire to this set of noah-esque Christmas
carols. Let’s just say, the mood here is sentimental.
Lopez - 10:40
well… just got finished with a set and I think I did pretty
good. Played with some pretty hott dudes (dennis and Bruce). Man…
it’s soo awesome that I can display a different side of
myself to the public and have them sit with all ears on my sound.
It was absolutely amazing. Maybe I’m getting tired and delirious.
Or maybe I’m just in awe from the feeling I had up in from
of everyone while I was playing. I don’t know. but whatever
it was…. it was good. I hope this all goes well… 22
and a quarter hours left
braccio - 10:45
the music has taken a turn for the mellower and I for one am all
for it. Dale and aaron have also just arrived which was pretty
here we are—good music, bad jokes
hannas - 11:35
We are jamming!!! and it is GREAT!!!!!!!! I think me and my bud
alex,and some friends may start a band of our own.
alex schramm - 11:50
I’m sleepy and all this slow music and ballads aren’t
