Yup, anyone in the Concord, NC area this Saturday night (Nov. 3) stop in @ the Speakeasy Ale House... I'll be opening for NC hottest blues band, Horsefly @ 8 pm and between me and Horsefly there's "gonna be some stinging goin' on"...

I'll even buy any Catter who shows a beer...

Sounds wonderful, Bobert. I can't be there, but I'll be thinking of you and your songs.

Nice gig tonight... Everything went exactly as I had hoped and I got another booking out of it....

Met some great people... Got some nice hugs from some women... Sold a few CD's...

Felt good to get my foot in the door here in Charlotte... Been a struggle...

I think you should change your stage name to
Highpockets Bob. Makes you sound like a real stampeder.
Not some bum off the sidewalk.

Thanks all...

It was nice to get into a comfy groove and talk some smack... Even nicer to have a hot band to open for and seems that we kinda bring a more complete show playing together...

They joined me on my last song which enabled me to do a nice intro of them... That portion is a work in progress but I've pulled it off with other bands in the past so we'll work on it...
