Jake Castro – Guitar & Vocals, Greg Slusher – Bass Guitar & Vocals, Tim Conway – Drums ~~~~~ Jake Castro Band ~~~~~ ( Please check-out the band on Facebook and ‘Like’ us…!!! ) ______________________________________________________________ Had a 3-hour Saturday evening set at this year’s 3-day Gibtown Biker Fest – After us was Michael Allman & Molly Hatchet – Earlier in the day, Greg Billings Band, Boss Hawg, and Black Honkeys performed – Massive attendance all day long… Our set was plagued by equipment mishaps… as soon as we started playing, Jake’s amp started distorting and losing power – the stage crew were saying they were getting shocked by the amp’s chassis as they were trying to troubleshoot the amps’ problem – I pulled my Mackie P.A. mixer out of the van and hooked the amp speakers up to it, but we could not get a signal – we finally found another way to amplify his guitar, by running him through a D.I. box & through the P.A. – of course, the first D.I. box we hooked-up was defective… but we eventually got him a good strong signal… Then guitar strings started breaking in the middle of solos… my mic stand toppled off-stage at least twice… on the last song, Tim’s kick drum pedal broke… Then, after we had finished playing & were packing up, one of the brand new display Harley-Davidson bikes fell over onto the concrete road, making a horrible sound as it crunched to the ground… no one was within 30 feet of the bike when it fell… Someone was heard to mutter, ‘Man, there’s some bad Juju hangin’ around this area…’ – ______________________________________________________________ Recorded at Gibtown Biker Fest, in Gibsonton, Fla., on Saturday, Jan. 16th, 2016, by some Cowboy-Hat-Wearin’, Barefooted DamnGeezer, using a relatively new, but for some reason, recently discontinued Zoom Q2 HD audio/video Electronically-Digitized–Then-Recorded-onto-a-Memory-Data-Chip-Kinda-Doo-Hickey…. It IS a Magical Process Thang and I am continually amazed at the quality of the audio… Oh, yeah… and I’m Highly Honored to still be using a 35 year-old Slik Tripod that my Father bought for me… Way Cool… Hehehe – ________________________________________________________ ~~~ As Always….
