Weekend Update

It was a busy weekend for the P.Tails. Three gigs in 48 hours. As usual we got through it with a little help from our friends. On Friday night prodigal son Jeffrey Morris showed up and played a set. Unfortunately, he had to leave early due to an animal uprising, but hopefully he'll come back soon and sing a few of his signature songs like "Big Butt" and "Same Thang". "Pistol Pete" Panagakos is one of Abuquerque's busiest bass players, but despite his hectic schedule he found time to sit in both nights. Saturday night Ryan McGarvey sat in with the P. Tails for a couple of smoking sets. Ryan has a trio with Peter on bass and K.C. White on drums. Check 'em out, they are very good. Here's a link to Ryan's website:

Above: Darin and Ryan playing the classic Don Nix song "Going Down". Nix wrote the tune for Freddie King who made it a hit. Later Jeff Beck covered it. Ryan sang and Darin channeled the ghost of Fredie King, it was a true blues moment.

Above: Jeffrey Morris. He sang and played guitar in our failed Country and Western band. Jeffrey sang all the Johnny Cash songs. Someday, the Sons shall rise again.

Above: Ryan and Darin trade leads back and forth. In the background "El Pistolero" lays down some solid bass.

Jon Edwards knows how to enjoy himself.

So does Peter, he just shows it in a different way.

This coming week the P. Tails are playing Friday night at the Barley Room. The music starts at 9:00 and the Barley Room doesn't charge a cover.
