It's not all play....these guys have to work before playing. This is Wade getting his drums set up.This is Brett working on his guitars and amps. The other band members hadn't gotten there yet.Jason (aka J-Bones) couldn't be there because he had just had his appendix out. But the guys didn't forget him. They set up his guitar and put his mask on it. So even though J-Bones wasn't there physically, he was there in spirit.Tim, the lead singer.Brett, getting crazy. He is awesome and does some really crazy things with his guitar. You would have to see him. Maybe some day I can get some video of a show and show you what I mean.Tony, jammin'.And the best drummer in the world. My son, the newlywed, Wade. His beautiful bride, Diana had to work so she couldn't be there with us.Brett, Tony, Tim and Wade in the background....rockin' out.
Shot of the whole band.
Just finishing a song. Tim is "hawking" free stickers. They were giving away free Under The Empire stickers to the crowd. Yours truly was supposed to hand them out. I was stuck (no pun intended) at a table with the stickers. Tim actually ended up giving most of them away. I did bring some home so I could share with family and friends. I actually do have a good time at these shows. Wade has been in some other bands that I've absolutely hated, but these kids are really good and I would love to see them get a break.
