As I sit here typing this I am back in a familiar place; our home in Seattle. The band officially finished the Southwest Tour on Monday, April 4th with our last gig being at Central Washington University. CWU is a familiar place for us to play and we are always warmly welcomed by the students and staff alike! A special thanks to our friend Amber Linn and her family for treating The Crooks to lunch after the show. What a great final finish to a wonderful tour!
Our last few dates were jam packed and we were hustling all around Washington and some of Oregon to finally make a valiant finish! On Friday, April 1st we played up on Chinook Pass for a private mountain party. And what a party it was! Not only were we celebrating a few local birthdays, but it also just happened to be our own Aaron Myers’ b-day as well! Wow! Well, at least we survived to tell about it!
Our next stop was up at Mount Hood Meadows! We played up at the main ski lodge for both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Not only did the staff go out of their way to make our stay comfortable, but they also provided us with daily meals, lodging, and free lift tickets! Holy jeeze…I can’t wait to play at “The Hood” again! Needless to say, I took them up on the free lift tickets and spent my Sunday morning on the hill.
On Sunday morning around 7:30 am, Eric was nice enough to give me a lift down to highway 35 where I proceeded to stick my thumb out and further myself up the mountain. After about 5 minutes a friendly guy named Chris pulled over and gave me a lift to the nearest parking lot and I was on my way to a great day on the slopes. All I can say is, “powder, powder, powder!” Woo! It was great.
In other news, Chris is finally home to his “Babbas!” and Mr. Cody Beebe has a new piercing! What did he get pierced you ask? Well, you’ll just have to come to our next show and see for yourself!.
Cody Beebe & The Crooks will be performing at The Brick Saloon in Roslyn, WA this Friday, April 15th! Show starts at 9pm!
