The Cheeseburgers kick off the Hot Off The Grill World tour tonight at the Knights of Columbus in Quincy, located on 36th Street near State. We play from 7 to 11. There is no admission charge. It's part of the Smokin' Good times BBQ event, so there will be lots of food and cold beverages available.
I am nervous and excited about this show. It's the first time we've played in six months. We have a new member, Stacy Taylor, who plays keyboards and sings. We've dumped the set-list upside down and come up with more gooey Cheesey tunes than ever, but kept the staples you know and love. Yup, we'll cowbell again until the cows come home.
We've been practicing every week. Still, it will take time to hit our groove. I think we'll sound fine, but it will be a little different with a new guy and new songs. The one thing that won't change is the energy and the good-times vibe.
