Reggie Update September 2013

Hi all,

Reggie has had the second brain tumor removal surgery, this happened on Monday and he is already at home recovering and is healing quickly. I took him home on Wednesday and he will be back performing with us at our next show which is Friday, Sept. 27th at the Old General Store in Roy.

He is still going through more treatments and we'll see how the brain tumors respond soon.

We'll keep ya posted and we are all elated he is doing so well after this operation and very happy to have him back on stage with us soon!

See y'all soon! Dale

October Update

Howdy Everyone!

This coming Friday & Saturday nights (10/5 & 6) we will be back at the Auburn Eagles! We will be bringing a lot of real country music and dancing for ya and a couple birthday boys will be in the house. "Wild Bill" will be turning 29 (again) and apparently my lovely wife has a "event" in mind for me... I thought I stopped counting birthdays a long time ago but she never lets me forget! :o)

So, Auburn Eagles - Friday & Saturday night! Show starts @ 8 PM.

Also, here is a post I just put on facebook:

"Hi All, A last minute schedule change has happened. Due to circumstances beyond my control, we will NOT be performing for the Christmas for Kids event in November. We hope the event will be a success for the kids and look forward to future events."

Thanks to you all for the support and we'll see ya there! Dale, Peter, Mike, & Reggie

P.S. We signed the contracts for next year with the Auburn Eagles! A special thank you to Marv, the Auburn Eagles, and you for making this happen! You all are the best!!! DB

NEWS FLASH - OGS TO RE-OPEN!!! Doubleback Will Play TWO Nights at the Roy Rodeo

MARK YOUR CALENDARS - Friday September 14, DOUBLEBACK will be at the Old General Store (OGS) in Roy 8 PM – midnight Mark & Dianna are re-opening the OGS!!!! Many people have asked them about this and I know many of us have dreamed of this and it's back! Everyone knows our local honky-tonks have been drying up and Mark & Dianna want to help. So here's the deal, they are opening the OGS to us all one night a week (Fridays) as a "dinner and a show" concept. • The bands are going to work for the door; which means, the cover charge at the door goes directly to the band. No more - no less. • A caterer will be there to provide food and will work for the proceeds they get from the dinners sold, • OGS will work for the proceeds from the bar sales. We think this is a wonderful concept and want to do what we can to make this successful. DOUBLEBACK will be the band to "kick this off" and many of the other local bands are also stepping up and we all will start a rotation so you all will get a variety of the local country bands at a great place to dance and hang out!!

None of this will work without you, so please join us in September and let's "Take Back Our Honky-Tonk" and make this the best Country Bar & Dance Hall in south Pierce County!!

Also, we will be playing two nights at the Roy Rodeo Labor Day weekend, Saturday & Sunday nights, Buckboard will be there Friday & Saturday nights - WOW!!!

Last, I had an "issue" with the band email list... I zapped it into oblivion by mistake and I have been trying to re-build it and try to remember who was on it, so.... if you want to be on it and/or know someone who would like to, please let me know and I'll make the changes. If you don't, just let me know and I'll (sadly) take you off. Either way - guaranteed no spam from me!! I hate spammers and they should all rot!! (I'm just saying!) ;o)

See y'all soon, Dale, Peter, Mike, & Reggie

Coming Performance Update

Hi everyone!

I know it' been awhile so this is going to be a bit longer than usual; but, I will be brief! Well the knee is finally healing and I gotta get back to my "real" job in a couple weeks... (dang!), but that also means it's time to schedule more shows! So...

This coming weekend shows:

• If you're out and about tonight, I am going to be playing with the world famous Broken Trail band for a short spell tonight at the Yelm Moose. It is a party for one of the folks from the Red Wind Casino and a bunch of folks will be stopping by to jam and hang out. We go on at about 7 PM.

The weekend following (July 27 -30th):

We have been in the "woodshed" working on some new tunes and polishing up the ones we already know and I can't wait for y'all to hear what we have been working on!
