    Hobie's Got a Gig.....

    Hey Guys,

    After about 17 years without music, I am happy to say that I've been picked up by a local Band called Full Tilt Boogie, (the Merkin Brothers) , who on top of their normal Blues based show are putting together a Joe Cocker Tribute Show, with a nice three piece Horn Section. Still looking for a suitable Keys Player so far, but rehearsals are underway regardless.

    The Sound of the "Slightly Enhanced Pitbull JBB5" Suits music nicely and works really well in the mix with plenty of Punch and Clarity. It has drawn plenty of positive comments from the rest of the Band which has been working Hobart venues for more than 15 years.

    Good for you! Hope it all goes well and you do more than simply get by with a little help from your friends.

    Congrats Hobs should be a hoot.

    I've really enjoyed what I have been doing with Max & Bob over the last couple of years after not playing at all for over 30 years, don't know that we'll get to play live because Bob is not a well man and not too many 70 yr old trios send the women wild.
    Regards
