I want to take a moment and thank you guys for all your nice comments about the tunes I have posted, " Whiskey Before Breakfast "and the "Oopik Waltz". You are listening to me play with my band called Pastense. We hangout here in the northeastern part of this beautiful State of Kansas. I am so fortunate to have this group of people to play music with on a weekly basis. David Dryer is our guitar and mando player. he also sings harmonies and does some lead vocals when we can talk him into it. He is one of the best musicians in the band with his knowledge of chord progressions and harmony singing. He is also one good flatpicker. He plays less mando these days since Susan Willits joined up with us. Susan is just a wonderful Banjo and Mando player. You hear her mando playing on these tunes. She is very serious about her music and can learn tunes in no time. She is also a really great lead singer on some of our songs adding a complimentary sound to our other lead singer Jolleen, and doing such a good job on harmony. Jolleen Thorpe is our lead singer and plays rhythm guitar for the band. Jolleens voice can be described as having the sound of Allison Kraus with power. Jolleen has written some songs for the band as well. She will just blow you away with her passionate vocals. Last and certainly not least is our hilarious bass player (what is it with comedy and bass players?) Donald D., Ray Junior Lee, Anderson. He gives the group our drive and entertains the audience while we stand around and tune or look silly back at him. It's very important to entertain as well as play good and Don makes our band so much fun to watch. These guys make me look good and I am so proud to make music with them. You can visit our band at www.pastense.org or www.myspace.com-pastensebluegrassband We got several songs from our latest CD posted there. Thank you for you comments and plays.
