CORI AND I had a blast as usual at Brick's in Hannibal last Saturday night. It was a great place to play, and we love the owner Lisa and our so-called Hannibal girls who often pop up at our gigs. It was only our second show this year and I felt really rusty at the beginning, but we warmed up after awhile and it was great fun.
Cori's last name used to be Lyssy. That's how we came up with the name for our little duo, HartLyss. But Cori has a new last name (her maiden name), Powell. We can't really call ourselves HartPow. Or can we?
"We can do whatever we want," Cori said Saturday. "I'm going to slowly change it to HartLess. Nobody will ever know."
I don't know about that. Also, we've added drummer Lincoln Smith to the mix when space permits. He's quiet, polite and keeps perfect time. In other words, he's the complete opposite of me and Cori. That's probably why it works so well.
What do we call ourselves now? My suggestion of "Tall Guy & The Blue Hair" fell on deaf ears. So did "Cheap And Easy," but only because we couldn't figure out who was cheap. Some of the other suggestions violate FCC regulations.
For now, we are HartLyss, morphing to HartLess. We are totally open to suggestions. Just keep 'em clean and appropriate. Or not!
