Sunday Night Jams

Shawn Hapney was back filling in on drums again while Evan is still recovering from a broken hand. It was an awesome jam last night, partly because Kenny and I went to see Dream Theater the night before and were stoked to play. Thanks to all the jammers: Lego, Russ, Frank "Silk" Smith, Mello, Ron, and John. Here's what you said:

Last night was the Verlie's debut of Hayshaker Jones. if you like country music, with great vocals, and steel guitar, you will love Hayshaker Jones. Look for the return of Hayshaker Jones this fall. Here's what you said:

Now this demon is reciting parables in "the Book of Lies" My question is: How can he tell the Demon is telling the truth?

Cleveland Homegrown with Brandon Oliver, and Brittany Murphy

Last night's host was Brandon Oliver. It was his 1st time playing @ Verlie's and he did great. He brought some friends to help him out including Brittany Murphy, and Pete Rodgers. Look for the return of Brandon Oliver soon. Here's what you said:

  • L. I. F. E. It's the same as it ever was thanx - Pete Rodgers
  • I can't suck no more, my sucker's broke - Nae Nae
  • Mardi: the bartender, the local legend. I feel privileged to have met Mardi, the sixty four year old cougar that bartends here. After years of bar tabs and long nights, she seems to have the same spunk as any 20 year old. She's as hot a momma that you'd find @ Cleveland's trendiest bars. Never mind her pain in the ass son who lives next door. Mardi doesn't let anything phase her. She is what every woman should aspire to be. If she was here right now, I'd ask her to spoon. We love you Mardi!
  • What started out as a reason to set out of the house and support a friend turned into a reminder of the importance of music in my life. And the realization that it's not the size of the venue, the popularity of the band, or even the number of people there, but the love of music. And when the people who love to make music come together with people who love to listen...magic can happen. And that's how I felt. Old friends mixed with new. Cool songs with originals. A cool bar in the middle of nowhere. It's all a reminder that live music hasn't disappeared. It just went and hid @ the local bar.
  • It was hotter than an after hours of a Tennessee family reunion when I rolled into town. Walking through the door was refreshing as a tall glass of sweet tea (long island style of course) If I panned away my life I couldn't have found a more precious gem. The people were friendly and the whole damn place was ready to jive. I was sweating out yesterdays good time and strumming what I felt. All of this so surreal yet all authentic. An oasis in the desert. If you missed any moment at this joint, you don't know how sorry you should be - Brandon Oliver

Sunday Night Jams

Evan broke his hand so ex-whammer jammer Shawn Hapney is filling in on drums for a couple weeks. Thanks to the jammers: Lego, Josey, Rusty, and drummer Mike. Here's what you said:

  • The music never stopped, it does however take short breaks! Intermission is half the fun, go find a beer!
  • Absolutely nothing, no one can hold the Whammer Jammers down. You better believe it - H Robert Stevenson III
  • "wow" I'm so cool, "actually" I think I'll stand outside and chain smoke all night. "wow" later I'll cough up half a lung "wow" maybe I'll die of lung cancer soon "wow"
  • Why should I hire a working "man" with a family to support? How absurd! Entertainment money is more important
  • Mmmmm doughnut, I like killing the weak
  • Your clothes look good on my floor. Sex-murder-art. Under your bed is my favorite place at night. I keep the hair out of your face.
  • Ok, it's time to notice a few things in your midst, first the sky and clouds, next the areas of wood grain. (patterns of logical content) also your skin can "pulse" out symbols, like runes on rocks. Flip out, relax, over compensate. Forget about it, tell a friend. It's your universe!!!
  • Peace, love, and hair grease
