Grizzly usually has some pretty
memorable evenings and Saturday
night was no exception. We went
from a Trashed female patron dirty
dancing, dirty talking, etc
requesting Brown Eyed Girl and
Motown all night, to a late
arriving out of town Cougar drum
instructor. Not to mention Ms. G.
I. Joe. None the less it is good
to see people out having a good
A birthday to
birthday is the 19th, we played at
Riddles in U.City Friday night the
16th. For those of you who
were there, it was a people
watching night like no other.
Black leather pants, heels too
much to drink and really getting
into the music can make you go
crazy, yes she did!!
thanks to Kathy for spicing up the
show at Maple Days. Kathy was
celebrating her 40th birthday
party, and wow did she know how to
celebrate. I thought it was only
men that beer effected that way,
you know how women always get
prettier towards closing time.
Well Kathy though we were F------
HOT!! And yes, it was getting
close to closing time.
May of 2008
the end of another chapter of the
Pocketchange Blues Band. I looked
back at some notes, some memo to
try to see when we first met
Jason. I could not find any,
but I think it was in the summer
of 2004. We were playing at the
Train Wreck and later ended up at
Spootys. I have some
pictures of us in 12/2004.
We surely had some good times with
Jason, and no one got bored at our
shows. We will move on now, all of
us, for we all have that one thing
in common, the love of music, and
the freedom you feel when
performing. Our paths will cross
again, and when it does I hope we
can strike up the band and have
one, for old time sake.
A night in
South St. Louis is an experience
everyone should have at least
once. I am speaking about
our night in the Jefferson Bistro
last Saturday night. One of
my co-workers summed it up Monday
morning when he said "I think
that was a record
number of bra's on the stage
Saturday" Pretty crazy night,
and some pretty crazy ladies. And
yes, he was correct that was a
record for the number of bra's on
stage. Funny thing was Jason
tried to put one on, and realized
he knows how to take them off, but
could figure out the combination
to put one back on, I mean why
would we know that. Tim has just
retubed his amp, and we thought it
sounded great, and I think the
amp, with the bra in the foreground
really set it off. Great
sound with some nice trim.
were at the show at J.P corner on
the 14th, and they said it best
with "more than one show
going here at this
place" It was St.
Patrick's weekend, and wow, there
were a few shows going on at that
place. The tall "ladies"
that were on the dance floor, they
had all eyes on them that's for
sure. Lots of cleavage that night
also, many comments about that
during the night. Not to
mention the best ass award.
If you were not there, you missed
a great time. You never know what
to expect when you mix beer, rock
and roll, and women together.
Since we are
on the subject of sex. Did anyone
feel awkward when Brian came in
and just laid that stereo
equipment at Adrian's feet!! You
talk about a show stopper. Sure
looked like a lovers spat to me!!
What did you do to piss off that
awhile to figure it out, but sex
really does sell. We are now
renting out Jason to other bands,
that would like to fill the tip
jars. He just gets on stage,
wiggles his ass, and money just
gets stuffed down his
pants!! Girls are pretty
you were not there to see it, you
missed a wild one Saturday night
at Parrot's. A reunion of
some of our friends from high
school, and I mean the mid 1970's
high school days. I had my thigh
bit, yes that is right, onstage,
two of the savages, came right up
and bit me on the thigh. Not since
the mid 70's has that happened Oh,
yes, it was fun, I loved it. Pam
and Sue, you still got it!!!! Good
to see you again, and thanks for
Jason, what was that girl in the
front row doing all night, was she
a gymnast? What was that all
Jason was close to getting knocked
out Saturday night!!!
He took his eyes off of the
crowd, and almost paid for it.
During one of our dance songs, a
couple decided to get pretty rowdy
with the swing dance, and the guy
swung the girl over his back, and
her feet came around and knocked
Jason’s microphone right off the
Yes, head high!! Just
inches from him!!
Pretty crazy, and just when
you thought you had seen it all!!
thoughts a prayers are with the
family of Nick Hoffman. Nick
is friend of family and we learned
of his passing today. We
heard he was sick on Christmas
eve, and was diagnosed with cancer
(Leukemia). We were shocked to
hear he passed so quickly.
heard of Ghostbusters! We
have "drunk busters
Jason" Yes that is
right, if you have a drunk in the
crowd that you need to get rid of,
just call Jason Martin. We
had a very drunk man at our show
last Friday night, and I was ready
to throw him out between sets, but
Jason could not even wait that
long, after about six songs, he
looked at Tim, and said take over
singing, I have to talk to this
guy!! He did, and the guy left,
and Jason would not even reveal
his method to us!!
Adrian being out of the band, we
are trying to get that sex appeal
thing going, what do you think,
Jason on a dance pole. Just
what he needs is a prop!!
the question is how are we going
to get the sex appeal back, since
Adrian is gone?
Tower pub was the place to
be. Sit in drummer Mr. Tim
Heideman did an excellent job for
us, and Mr. Rob Garland joined us
for the second set with some
smoking blues. Mr. Adrian House
got lost in the nurses station for
a few songs. Jason actually
yelled at one time that we had a
"man down". Unfortunately
for Adrian he ended up with us at
Uncle Bills after the show, he had
other places on his mind.
Wow was it hot last night or what. Hot place, hot women, and hot blues. Love that combo.
The band is really sounding
nice right now after a few shows
with Mr. Tom May.
We are looking to add some
more song selections very soon, so
stay tuned for some new stuff from
the Pocketchange Blues Band.
Well if you
missed the Tower Pub last night,
you missed a good one. Mr.
Alex House sat in for complete
session on the drums, and Mr.
Adrian House sported a different
guitar. Both ingredients
made for a special evening. Tim
sang a different version of
"She caught the Katy"
and said something about "Her
big tits in the hall" so that
got some of the ladies in the
house some pretty crazy
ideas. Next thing you know
we had George Washington's stuff
down the front of their blouses
and Jason had to retrieve those
dollars for the tit jar, I mean
tip jar. Hard work for those lead
weekend for the Pocketchange Blues
Band. Yes, Adrian was
standing up Friday night at
Parrot's, What a night, good
show and we were very happy with
the sound there. Now for the
really wild news!! Yes we had
Francesca up dancing on the bar at
Baby K's and pictures to prove
Rumors have it,
that Adrian will be standing up
playing at Parrot's, what do you
you Blues Bands out there. How do you handle that guest that keeps coming to the stage
asking for you to play “Mustang
Sally” When asked that last
night after several request our
guitar players answer was simply
“The fucking bitch was shot”
Maybe you may have a better
answer. Let me know
when you think you have seen it
all. I dream of Jeanne
shows up last night with Larry
Shepherd. Jeanne turns out
to be one of nurses that cared for
Denise's mom at the hospital. Wow,
that is wild.
have a new tip jar at
Spooty's Thank you Lauren
Youtzy. In the theme of
Pocketchange she took a paint
bucket and attached a blue jean
pocket to the outside with the Pocketchange
tip jar printed on
it, and some loose dollars
sticking out the top, very cool.
Nick Russo sat in last night to
warm up the Pocketchange blues
band, with a little shuffle, and
little rock and roll. Thank
think you will be in the studio
had some new guests at the
show Saturday night. Nick and
Lauren Nick was taking
some film shots for the band, when
a patron decided she wanted to be
part of the show, Nick got some
interesting shots lets just put it
love playing at Spooty's in
Soulard. Sometimes, being that
close to the patrons can really be
interesting. Adrian had a
very nice young lady wanting his
attention. So after some time on
the dance floor of not being
noticed she came up to him, and
just put her hand under his chin
and lifted it up "look
up" she told him. Not just
once but several times, it did
work, she managed to Adrian to
should write a book!!!
Jason is happy! Will fill
you in on the details later.
late enough, He met a very nice
women at Spooty's during our
last show. I had the pleasure of
meeting Claudia last night at the
show. Very nice lady
and I wish the two of them
ladies, I think Jason needs a girl
friend. The Tower Pub was just
packed last with some very
attractive women in the
crowd. Jason was sure looking
for some companionship for the
evening. Did not happen.
you ever have that annoying or
intoxicated bar patron ask to sit
in, or sing with your band?
you would like to know how to get rid of
them politely you have to ask our
guitar player Adrian House.
week when the typical " do you
know how to play ___________
I can sing it with you". was
asked, Adrian replied " we do
not play karaoke songs" and
later when she was telling him that
she used to sing a band, he replied
"How's that going for you
right now" That one sent
her back to the bar.
Tom Brooks put on a dance
show Friday night. If you missed
that, you missed a good time.
Thanks Tom! Great night.
Denise and Susie were busy
designing logo's for the new
Pocketchange intimate apparel
cumming soon. We even read the
top ten list, on why to have your
Pocketchange briefs, panties,
g-string or whatever, on, of
course these came from Denise and
Susie. Will post those later.
Anybody catch that hair cut on
our new lead singer!!! Wow,
short, bald! Go Jason, you
There was a flasher in the house
Friday night. She just kept
showing her boobs to the band all
is very dangerous to dance close
swings a pretty mean Axe!!
the lady at the Trainwreck Friday
a little too close to the stage,
pedaling, and Adrian was turning
right and bam!!! smacked her
right on the head.
