Thanks From The Ass Pocket Whiskey Fellas! 

Another year has passed us by with some highs and lows to remember for a while.

Gigs that were really hard and gig’s that just made us smile.

Gigs that were really fun, gigs all day outside in the sun, gigs with no one but us, gigs with long trips on the bus.

Gigs where no one said good-bye to each other, gigs that made us cry about our Mothers.

Gigs we played for no money at all and gigs that turned out to be a ball.

But as long as the gigs keep coming the Ass Pocket Whiskey Fellas will keep playing…

Gallagher's Oct 3rd in OB 

Hello People of the Ass Pocket Whiskey Fellas! 

Y'all were great Friday night with one of our biggest crowds to date. Stive forgot his bass amp but that didn't slow us down one beat. Eugene, the owner of Gallagher's is really a cool guy. When I say cool, I mean he is very generous with his coolness and had the A/C on all night. Which made for a fun cool dance floor. There was some great dancing and even a couple who were line dancing together so well that the band loved it. I'm not a big country music…

Blackthorn in Clairemont 

We had a great night Friday... But does anyone ever read my posts? No one ever replies so I can say about anything I want!  No one really gives a shit so I'll just entertain myself... 

What about this? It seems magpies do not deserve their bad reputation as the thieves of the animal kingdom.

Their love of hoarding shiny objects is so famous it is even recorded in the English dictionary. But according to scientists it simply isn't true...

Or what about this?

Saturday Night the 2014 Rocky Fest - Canyon Of Dreams 

Three months ago the band agreed to play Rocky Fest in the mountain city of Julian.

As the time got closer to play this mountain party it seemed that making this trek might be more than the band had anticipated.

Chin Hai reminded the band with no uncertain words that Rocky has been a strong supporter of the Ass Pocket Whiskey Fellas and we couldn’t back out now.

First stop was Costco to fill up the Big Gig Rig maxing out my credit card at $150.00 for gas. That took 15 minutes to pour in almost 40…
