“Curl like bacon!”

“Man, that sure did curl like bacon!” Chris Green exclaimed after biting into a hearty piece of turkey bacon.  This is the first of hopefully many quotes to be remembered on our two and a half week tour through the Northwest.  We started the tour off yesterday evening traveling from Seattle to Olympia, playing The 4th Ave Tav.  For a Thursday we had a pretty good crowd including a few close friends and family.

Over labor day weekend this past year we met a very nice couple.  Chuck and Toni heard us play a show at the Old Schoolhouse Brewery in Winthrop, WA and were instant fans and soon became good friends.  Since that weekend they have attended a few more shows of ours around the west side of the state, bringing with them several friends to each show.  Being a struggling band we can’t always afford to stay in hotels at every stop and often we rely on our family and friends.  Chuck and Toni offered their home to us for our first night on the road and we took them up on it.  They arrived at the 4th Ave Tav around 8 with a few friends and we all had a great night together playing music and enjoying the company of great people!
Thank you Chuck and Toni for your selfless hospitality, hot showers, and great food!
Cody Beebe & The Crooks will be doing an in-store appearance/performance at Music Millenium(3158 East Burnside Street Portland, OR 97214) at 6pm followed by a live show at The Crystal Ballroom, Lola’s Room (1332 West Burnside Street

Shelf Life…

Cody “Shawn White” Beebe and Eric “The Tool Man” Miller have it going on.  What do they have going on you ask?  Well, other than being cute as buttons they tend to embark on “man projects” from time to time.  What’s a “man project” you ask?  Well, simply put, it’s the physical act of building and or constructing something and or using tools and or drinking beer whilst commencing on said man project!  …In other words, they built a new shelving unit for the band trailer.

For the past several months or so, we have been struggling to organize our trailer while on the road.  Having seven of us who all play instruments, makes for fairly tight quarters.  Not to mention the fact that we all bring along our vintage Samsonite suitcases and any other what-not’s that make it along for the tour.

After valiant brainstorms and very precise measurements, Cody and Eric decided to embark on the “Build a Shelving Unit for the Band Trailer Man Project!”  How did it turn out you ask?  Well, see for yourself…

Well done boys!  Well done………………………..boys.

Cody Beebe & The Crooks will be performing next at The 4th Ave Tav in Olympia on Thursday, January 13th!  Show starts at 9PM!  The 4th Ave Tav is located at 210 E 4th Ave, Olympia, WA 98501
