I played guitar with the Mike Hachey Band on Friday December 2nd at the Saint Paul University Club, using a Gibson Chet Atkins solid body nylon string through a Roland keyboard amp. Songs included "One Note Samba", "Blue Bossa" and "Oleo." Carmin Pluntz played saxophone, with Ron Peterson (keys), Brian Morrow (bass) and Mike Hachey (drums). On December 3rd, I played bass at the French Press Jazz Cafe in Saint Paul, using a Parker Fly through an SWR amp. Lineup was Paul Renz (lead guitar), Todd Tanji (trumpet, flugelhorn), Lisa Meyer (keys), Eric Heegaard (rhythm guitar) and Jessie Lesmeister (drums). Songs included original compositions by Lisa and "Green Dolphin Street." Both gigs were played to a full house.
