    Official OSA Jam - Lou's Cottage

    With the jam just 14 weeks away, I thought I'd start a thread so we can keep track of developments along the way.

    In 10 short weeks we will light up Lou's Cottage Inn with all the mirth and music of our bygone era! LOL!

    I am really looking forward to seeing you guys.

    Re: Official OSA Jam - Lou's Cottage

    So dudes,

    Should I bring a solid power trio for a house band or do you all want the Total Rock Star experience with the whole band, lights, video screens, etc.?

    It's just as easy to do the big show since it always ends up that if I do a smaller show all the equipment we need is in the front of the trailer so we need to empty the whole damn thing anyway, lol. In fact, the guys have it down to a routine where the trailer gets packed in the reverse order of how we set up to keep things efficient on the road.

    You can bring your good stuff as I'll have our security guy there too.

    Any song requests?

    Damn, it'd be worth it to just drop by and watch this spectacle! Shoot plenty of video so we can enjoy it on youtube.

    Are you sure the electrical service at Lou's can handle the draw? LOL. We don't want to burn the place down!

    He he, we may need to bring in a generator truck. Definitely no pyros at The Cottage!

    Re: Official OSA Jam - Lou's Cottage

    This may be the best Cottage Jam yet.

    I just got off the phone with the owner of The Cottage and you guys are going to love this stuff:

    First off, she's excited to have us (who can blame her, lol!)

    Second - it's carnival weekend in the town so lots going on and

    Third - now get this - she was asking me to write some history of the jams down to include in a book being written about the place including its rather impressive musical history.

    So, we will literally be making history.

    We may even have local TV coverage for the news.

    Be there or be square!

    Chuck

    PS, don't be surprised if a few of the old gang starts showing up on the forum. Apparently word has gotten out.

    I am licking my lips and crossing my fingers here. Within the first days of March I’ll know if I’ll be able to fly to the US on time to play this first jam with you guys. If all goes well, I’ll need someone to point me a pawn shop where I can buy a used strat or SG.

    If not, I’ll sure let you know when I do and we can set the next one in a suitable date for us all.

    Anyway I am just SO happy to have kick started the return of the TFF jams.

    Thanks, Chuck, Bob and everyone else!

    Sergio, we can supply you with all the gear you need so don't think you need to buy something just to play. What's mine is yours.

    We'll have to take you to the HOG too. But yeah, if you're looking to score some gear to ship home we can find what you need. I'll bet you don't even have any restrictions on Brazilian rosewood.

    I will gladly bring my Strat with me. It's a MIM with CS '69 pickups, wired up by Telebob himself.

    Me too. He was a great bandmate too. A pleasure to perform with. We still cross paths and I run into his better half from time-to-time.

    There's an FDP page on facebook with several old members there. I passed this along to them several days ago.

    Better book it for the entire day, into the evening. Lunch and dinner!

    That's all good news Chuck. Who would have thought that our little tribe would flourish like this. LOL!
    I guess it's good for us to be remembered for something in this life. And something that brought so much my joy, well, that's as good as it gets.

    Did manage to sneak the plug in. The host somehow got on a tangent about open jams and I jumped right in, lol.

    Bob, we should do an Evil Ways guitar jam trading off on custom built Les Pauls.

    He he, that way we can play "inverse Carlos" with descending licks instead of ascending. I like it!

    Just bump'n the thread.

    If anyone is planning to be there that needs help with anything - parking , carrying gear, a place to stay, whatever let me know so I can have that covered. I'll have a "Musicians Unloading Zone" in front of the Cottage by the stage door.

    That's Mendon, NY, right?
    Is that Microtel Hotel still there? I was pretty cheesy, but pretty reasonable if I remember.
