jughead reunion/cd release party

By Mike On October 28th, 2013 in Installments /

A few thoughts re: last Sat. night @ the El Mocambo….way too much fun. We got together @ 3pm at the club to rehearse & soundcheck….it’s amazing to me how well we fell in after 4 years of inactivity as a band….there were a few key changes due to older throats & that did cause some confusion in the heat of battle, but jugheads’ fans are fairly forgiving . There was a Who tribute band below us providing some sonic distraction but we persevered….over 100 friends & loyal fans showed up to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of jugheads’ debut cd “Uncorked”, which yielded the gold record award (Can.) winning “Hockey Song”, & help me celebrate the release of my debut solo effort “Mighty Lopez”. Daniel Joseph di a short solo set of his “A.K.A. Sugarlips” act…..all in all it was an amazing time. Alas, renowned banjo hero Chris Quinn Could not attend due to birthday plans with his family. Regardless, we powered through our favorite tunes like a well oiled machine & I do believe we gave the people an good time. Next year is the 25th anniversary of the start of the band so we’re already talking about the Horseshoe in 2014….stay tuned…
