Review: Waddy Wachtel Band at The Joint 9/24/07

The Waddy Wachtel Band was definitely ready to rock it last night. After having 2 weeks off all the guys in the band and the audience were craving some loud and energizing rock 'n' roll. And we got it! Seemed like everyone was up and dancing, and the band pounded through the songs.

It was a very special night - Brett Tuggle's birthday! Well, it was actually the day after his birthday, but we extended the celebrations for him. After Waddy announced it was Brett's birthday, Rick Rosas started in with the Beatles' "It's Your Birthday" and the whole band played a chorus of it. Mmmmm! The birthday card we signed read:
Outside: A wise man once said, "Don't count your years - make your years count."
Inside: Or was that "beers"? Either way, it's good advice.
We're so lucky to celebrate another year of Brett's life, and show him how appreciative we all are of him being there with us on Monday nights.

Despite all the celebrating, toasting, dancing and whatnot, Waddy, Phil, Rick, Brett and Jamie not only performed like the true professionals they are, but had so much fun doing it. I'm finding it's really hard to put into words how great these guys are. Those of you who have been to The Joint to see WWB know what I mean. :-D The only word that comes to my mind at the moment is...... Ecstasy!

Set List:

Other notes:

Rick Rosas is leaving this week to go on tour with Neil Young for the next few months, but he might be back with WWB again during that time if he has a few days off. If any of you see him out on the road, be sure to give him our love.

Al Ortiz will be filling in on bass for Rick the next 2 Mondays 10/1 and 10/8. Al is the bass player in Stevie Nicks' touring band, and Waddy chose him to come on down and rock it with WWB and delight all of us. This is going to be fun! I'm loving it already.

Waddy Wachtel will be off to Chicage for 2 weeks in October, so no Monday night shows on 10/15 and 10/22. He's playing a gig there with Stevie Nicks on 10/19, and they'll also be taping a show for Soundstage, which will go to DVD and be aired on PBS next year.

Love to all of you, and keep rockin it!
