Zachary is a great steel player. Be sure to introduce yourself to their bass player, Omar Oyoque. He also plays pedal steel guitar.

Craig recently turned me on to the Moon Pies.
The first song starts with steel on their playlist:

That'll be a blast! The band I play with opened for them at John T. Floores a couple months back. Band of great guys and the music is so good. Should be a good racket.

Nice to hear such exciting comments about this band, I myself can't wait to hear them.

Hey Kerry, I still remember the night you came to Davenport to hear me do a duo... that was the night the owner screamed "Turn down that damn pedal steel guitar" Smile

Ha ha ha... hope your finding plenty of work in the bay area.

Here's a shoutout to all you Sacramento steel guitarists. This show will feature two bands that not only have pedal steels, but put them right up front... no quiet padding in the back like top forty country Smile

TTT

Wow, so sad. I just received word that our band has had to cancel this opening gig for Mike and the Moonpies... I was so looking forward to it.

It seems our guitarist has contracted the Corona Virus... so several other of our gigs are also cancelled too now.

Sad

I'll just say, at the last rehearsal some members of the band were stating how the virus was "made up", and there was no way they would get a vaccine.

So, yeah, when you're young it may be hard to realize the hard medical truths... my only thought, I'm from the "Salk" vaccine community... and I choose to believe the medical community.

Sacramento steelers... please do go and hear one of the best new young steelers going.... it should be a great show!!!
