Tonight we're at the Broken Spoke from 8-11pm. Last time was a blast. Hope to see you out!
We're back at the Saxon Pub Wed, August 24th at 11:00pm after Walt Wilkins. I've been looking forward to it and it should be a lot of fun. Ya'll come on out if you're on the south side of town. Bracken
Tonight is Friday the 12th of August and Beau and I are backing the great Chris Wall at the Broken Spoke from 9-12pm! Kenny Grimes and Howard Kalish are also in the band. Tomorrow, August 13th, the Bracken Hale band is playing the Burke Rally benefit in Driftwood. The Burke Youth Center is a school for young boys from abusive homes. Terry Kirkendall, drummer for Michael Shane Borden got us in on this and I think it's a worthwile cause. It's also going to be a lot of fun!
It's hot. The thermometer in my car read 107 yesterday after driving in the air conditioning for a half hour. I drank over a gallon of water yesterday, and I've cut my beer intake down to six or so per night which seems to help. There was a house fire in the neighborhood last night. I could smell it when I got home. The news this morning said $120,000 in damages.
Last week was a blast... I enjoyed playing with Michael Shane Borden at Poodie's on Sunday and returned again on Monday to do our regular slot. Beau and I played with Billy Dee, and James Shelton Tuesday at Waterloo Icehouse filling in for Evan Christian. The Bracken Hale band also played on Wednessday at the Saxon Pub with Eric, Beau and Vance Hazen. I played bass out of town for Jeremy Steding over the weekend and tomorrow I'll be backing Michael Shane again. Then the Bracken Hale Band will be back onstage at Poodie's on Monday the 1st of August at 10pm!
We are back at the Saxon Pub tomorrow night, Wed, the 27th at 11:00 P.M. If you're out come on by. The band will be Beau Johnson, Eric Hisaw and Vance Hazen. Some friends of ours in Amber Lucille's band are playing afterward so it should be a fun night. We'll be there again several dates in August as well as our regular monday night slot at Poodie's. Come see us when you can! Bracken
