Nick & Bootsy had a chat via phone with Willie Aguilar of Will the Thrill. Will currently hails from St. Louis, but has lived ALL OVER. He’s left friends and family behind during his moves, but the music has always traveled with him. We had a great talk and heard some tunes from Will the Thrill’s most recent project, “Sorry to Disappoint Ya!” If you’d like to hear about what the band has in store for you during 2016, listen to the podcast and hear Will tell you about it!
It’s been an “On the Road” weekend for Nick and Bootsy as musicians. Nick joined Mick Byrd and Joe Dunlop at the St. James Veterans Home, then headed to Salem where Bootsy strapped on that left-handed Peavey Millenium to pay some tunes with Cathy Williams, Laura Coe and Erin Cain in the chick band, CaBoot’L, at the Roadhouse. CaBoot’l manager, Dale Williams, hosted a Poker Run to benefit friend, Matt, who was recently in a serious motorcycle accident. Matt wasn’t able to join the Poker Run, but he was at the finish line at the Roadhouse. The benefit raised almost $400 to help Matt out with his medical expenses. We were glad to see him on his feet – banged up but beaming!
CaBoot’L would like to thank Fuzzyhappy for showing up early at the Roadhouse to catch their set. Fuzzyhappy played at the Roadhouse during the evening.
Before heading home, it was off to Shots in Rolla where M. Arose and Various Hands were playing. Yep, it was a GREAT weekend for local music!
