5.) The Mojo's Gig in Jamestown-When the band lost bassist Tom Doeseckle, it looked as if Dick Whiskey limped its last gig. The band was saved when Bob "Mystic Cowboy" Kupczyk recruited Bob Rich III to play bass. The band landed a short-notice gig in July at Mojo's and only had two rehearsals to get our new addition up to speed. Mission accomplished in that not only was Bob up to speed but the DWhisks rocked the joint. This gig gave the band confidence that a little spit & polish and a ton of showmanship can get the job done.
3.) The 5 am jam at Bob's after Elmwood Lounge-In perhaps one the best post-Wally gigs, the band decided to stop over Bob Rich's pad for a after-gig roundabout and to refuel our whiskey-drenched buzz. When the "session" was over morning light was peaking at us as we left. The evening included the culinary skills of Bill as he fried up some burgers. A night to remember and since never been duplicated--as of yet.
The DWhisks would like to give a mighty thank-you shout out to all the good folks who shared a shot or ten with the band. 2011 is looking like a pinup gal with some great gigs lined up at the Legendary Elmwood Lounge and Club Diablo.
Love to see y'all in the new year!
Matthew LaChiusa is the frontman for Dick Whiskey. His new year's resolution was broken on January 2nd, 2:00 pm.
