Smokers Live in Montreal ’97


so we found this poster the other day.  it reminded us that we needed to get our butt in gear and do something with a video we’ve had lying around for ages. so we’ve spent the better part of the last day (or actually our computer has.. much to the skagrin of other fabulous tings that needed to be done via computer) uploading 3 parts of a Smokers concert we taped back in 1997.  its rough since we wanted to compile all the video into a edited video for one song but as time became an issue, it never happened. such a great evening that we are absolutely delighted to finally post! ENJOY!

The Smokers were:

Josh Fuhrman – Tenor Sax and Vox

Matt Foy – Guitar and Vox

Bryan McNally – Bass

Blair McNally – Trombone

Chris Gorman – Drums

Funkzilla Stomps on Board!

the funkzilla arrived!  its been played pretty much straight for the last 3 hrs & we love it!

at first, we were drawn to all the tap tempo options.  SO very addictive!
but second sober thought has us just using it as an envelope filter.
that will be the more practical (read: less annoying) use in a lot of the songs we play.
now the board is simple and clean.  tuner – beta – funkzilla
the next add might compression.  and we’ll stop there… ahahaaaa 😉 ahem… right!
a MASSIVE thanks to SOLID GOLD FX for not only making RAD pedals but great service too!
here’s a wee vid we did!
