Mellott is a small close knit farm community that suffered a devastating Tornado in Nov that displaced more than Half of the community the Dallas Cole Band is going to participate in a Benefit to help the tornado victims along with some Blues brothers in music from Chicago on Feb 22 2014
Been a long time since I was up that way ....came from a little town southwest of Chicago "PEORIA" back in the day played at Big Al's would love to go back and do it again..unfortunately now its a "Gentlemens club" ....and.....the statute of limitations hasn't run out yet ;)
I got asked recently with the economy so bad, venues struggling to stay open and bands throwing in the towel why do you do what you do at your age ? After giving it some thought this was my reply : Music is a harsh and demanding mistress with a heart colder than your ex girlfriends. I most certainly am not the best picker,singer/songwriter out there there are many far better than me but success does not hinge on who or what you know nor luck or even a large amount of talent though talent is a factor. sucess hinges on persistence and perservierance and that I have an abundance of. You have to believe in yourself and what you do and never..never..never say quit. most look at failure as a let down,loss,disappointment and even disgrace. I prefer to look at it as a life lesson learned and a stepping stone to success Dallas
The D.C.B. is looking forward to being at Chubbies There is a good possibility a couple of Blues Legends may be stopping by to sit in with us :)
