Log 6 : Quick tip for a road with a band

If you are on the road as a performer, you gatto take care of your health condition. That is a MUST. You're better to give your 100% every time you perform. Why?  Well, there are so many reasons that I have as my belief, but I share a few here with you:
  1. There always will be someone who have never seen you before and if you suck, that is for what they remember you for a long time. Most of the time that impression is permanent. They do not have to know and do not care if you were under the weather or whatever.
  2. If one got sick in a group, there is a possibility that other people get sick by being with him too. Then that is simply worse then only one of the member being sick.
  3. The worst case is a group has to stop or cancel shows because of your bad health condition.
 Personally, I believe that not getting sick is one of the least things to handle if you consider yourself as a professional in any of your desired field. One of the facts that, I think, separates between a pro and an other is producing what you have properly all the time. Not more or not less. Consistently produce what it need in that situation. In order to do that, you have to have a control on yourself first.

Last 3 days, I think I have been sick. I do not have any fever or cold, but my throat hearts and I cough really bad every minute. We had a show last night at Millhill Basement where we performed and had a great time about a month ago. We played as good as usual, but my part was not as tight as it was supposed to be. Seems like it is not a big deal at all, but that little detail make a huge difference. That is a fine line that I want always pass. And what worse than that was, I felt unusual tiredness or weight on my body after my performance so that I had to lay down on the couch with my wet clothes from my sweat for like 30 minutes.  The result was obvious. I was so dizzy and felt more sick. I felt so bad for that I could not talk to any of the people and bands after that happened to me.

So do not get sick on the road! is what I am trying to say in this blog.

Log 5

Here we are in Indianapolis, Indiana. Taking days off from our tour. We have few more shows for this year. So those of who have not seen us live yet, make sure you won't miss your chance for this year!

I have sooo much to write about now.  We have done 8 shows since my last blog. All shows were fantastic and marvelous!  We met many good bands and people.

David, Jessie, and all of you who spent time with us at Thanks giving in Phoenix, I can not find better word but thank you very much. It was such a warm and wonderful night. We had really good time with
you, your friend, and your family. I miss you Brutus!!!

I would like to thank Yo-hei, Naoto, and Keiko from Toy box for having us at Big Fish. It was so much fun to play and fun to watch you guys playing!!!  We will definitely come back and play with you guys again!

Brittany, Chris, and Angel. You guys are the best. We're really appreciate for your support. See you guys in February 2011!

Jacob and Kaci of Bar Deluxe in Salt Lake City, you guys saved our lives by letting us stay at your place. Thanks for pizza, beer, and Japanese snack, dried squid!!!  That was soooo good!!! 

The Marvin Heemeyer Experience and Landdgrabbers, you guys are killer at that night in Denver. I hope that we can play together again. Keep in touch with us!!

The show in Lincoln, Nevada was nothing like I have ever experienced. I changed up my drum setting into Jazz set up almost. I used my 16 inch floor tom as a bass drum and substituted the floor tom with my 14 inch rack tom.  It was not really necessary to change my setting in such a way, but for the purpose of providing suitable sound at that night, it worked pretty well!
I thank Bryan and Amy for having us at that night. Every bands and people were so nice to us. And I wish a good luck for the Bearkat. It was good to play and talk with a band who are on the road like us.

St. Louis show was just awesome. There were 6 bands and we played at 4th. Full of excitement and fun. We had such a good time! And Scene of irony, leaded by singer and St Louis legend Moe Holmes, put the floor on fire! I jumped, moshed, and screamed! Good time!!  Dino Fight closed that night with such a great performance.  They rocked out hard all the way til the end! 

Wow... I can go on and on and on but I should stop. I have been on this laptop for sooo long time. I am a slow writer. Who is reading it this far anyway?


This is already the last month of this year. Time flies when you got old. Right?
Do not let this year's wish be next year's. We got not time for waste. 
See you next time....
