Fitchburg Days & Bratfest

Here we are, barely heading into the warm weather of Summertime, and the band already has two beer tent shows under our belts.  It's exciting!  Saturday May 19th was the first outdoor show of the season at Fitchburg Days at McKee Farms Park in Fitchburg.  As usual Jay Allen and his crew had everything running smoothly.  When I got there I was able to park my car in a secure area, kick back, relax, and enjoy the R&B sounds of "The Jimmys" along with my first beer of the evening.  Although our set was plagued by more than a few equipment problems, it was a high-energy fun factory and it was great to see so many familiar faces in the front row teaching the new Fitchburg folks how we do things at a LUBE show.  

I'm Only Happy When It Rains...

Buzz is busy with his video editing projects,  so he asked me to take over the blog this week.  Yeah!  Let's get to it!

LUBEtube Episode 3

 

The new episode of LUBEtube is up!

 

It's a New Era

This weekend the mighty LUBE machine landed the mothership directly on the bustling vacation mecca of the Wisconsin Dells.  More specifically, at the Wo Zha Wa Sports Bar at Ho Chunk.  This has become a favorite little getaway for the band.  We usually play a very intimate show where we can hone in on our parts, try new songs, experiment with alternate versions, add extra harmonies, etc.  In other words... we use it as an opportunity to make our show better, tighter, and more interesting.  (Oh, and there's an all-you-can-eat buffet... but Buzz will show you all about that at some point.)

Happy New Year!

I wanted to wish all our friends and supporters the very best in this new year. We're planning to continue rocking hard for you through 2011, learning new tunes, and generally being the goofy musical circus that we've tried to perfect in 2010.

Your support means the world to all of us, and a LUBE show wouldn't even be the least bit interesting if it weren't for all of our friends showing up and making it fun. We're just five dorks on a stage, but it's the energy we give you and the energy you give us back that make
