    A father was buying bass lessons for his son. The 1st week the father asked him what he had learned. The son said "On my 1st lesson we learned about the E string". The 2nd week came and after the lesson the father asked what had he learned that week. The son said "On my 2nd lesson I learned about the A string". 3rd week came by and the father said to his son: "You know these are expensive lessons what have you learned this week". The son said: "I quit the lessons, I already got a gig".

Q: Wondered if you play any other style of music, island style is OK but how about 60's 70's something most people know?

A: Well yea, we play 60's 70's. As you can see on our playlist, we play stuff from the Rolling Stones, Al Green, Sublime, The Wallflowers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, some surf music, etc. Our set list is 75% rock and R&B, from the 60's through the 90's. We do enough songs we could play all rock, all night if the gig required it. But answer me this: Who doesn't know Bob Marley or Jimmy Cliff? It seems people love to sing along with these songs, even the rock crowd.
