    it may just require more elbow grease.. one of my pals does restoration and he will some time us an electric hand buffer, not sure how heavy duty it is.

    I've used Scratch X (Meguires). sometimes it works like a charm sometimes, only marginally improves the condition. but it sounds as though you have probably used equivalent products with so-so results.

    depends I guess.

    I see quite a lot of younger guys doing acoustic duo and solo gigs around here. some of them posses talent years beyond their age.

    at the same time, yea, many of us Dinosaurs are still out there doing what we've been doing since the turn of the last century...

    Woa.. we hear of these things, but totally different when it's happening right infront of you and you can just watch.

    It is very good they staff there was able to handle that. a tragedy avoided and a life saved.

    A good day for the good guys...
  5. In Topic:Where is the NICEST place you have played?

    12 September 2017 - 10:56 AM

    about 15 years ago. I was in a country show band, (and I didn't even play country prior to getting the gig)...

    the band was named "The Memphis Project"

    we opened up for Billy Ray Cirrus at Indian Ranch. (Billy was way too cool to meet us, but we did meet a few of his band mates).. That was pretty cool. the Guitar player for BRC at the time was this massive dude, he had to have been 6' 4" and built like a Offensive Lineman for the NFL. Hands the size of New Jersey. his strat looked like a toy when he was playing it. he was good tho..

    The other one was a Dinner show at a ball room in Lowell Mass. This place was HUGE, had about 100 tables, each table sat 10. They sold out the show, and actually added more tables to accommodate the ticket sales. The crowd, mostly adults 40+ ate it up. We always hired out sound system, & light show, which was impressive, they had lasers, follow spots, fog, portable risers and staging,, the whole 9 yards.

    those were the two of the more memorable gigs. Photos some where, but none available to post here.

    Howdy, kidblast! Just wanted to thank you for posting your stories! I sure hate it when a gig turns ugly but, there's nothing like the feeling of the crowd being with you! Good tales! Autumn's on its way so, stay warm up there in Taxachusetts! Peace!
