Productive

Yesterday, we had band practice at Danny's house.

This may sound like no big deal to you, but it is when you consider we had all of ONE band practice in the last YEAR.

(Why? Because since we play every week, we are always up on our stuff.)

What's great about practices is that we ALWAYS walk away from them with at least 10 new songs.

And this time was no different.

We added, let's see...

"Calling All Angels" by Train, "Cherry Cherry" and "Crackling Rosie" by Niel Diamond, "Lonesome Day" by Bruce Springsteen, and "In A Little While" by Uncle Kracker, among others.

We also had a few that just didn't work... ("Sweet Caroline" which REALLY needs a keyboard... So please don't ask for it...)

In all, a good time, as we not only practiced, but played a few songs with Dan's four children as well, which was a lot of fun!

Oh, and I will also mention, Dan, GREAT pork roll sandwich!

Time Off!

Well folks, just a quick note for you all.

Overtime is on a well deserved and much needed break for the next two weekends.

We will return to the stage on March 12th at Cryan's in South Orange.

See you then!

Cancellation, a Thank You and a Prayer.

Tonight's Overtime gig at the Boavista Pub in Newark has been cancelled due to an illness in the family.

Hopefully, we'll book another date there sometime soon to make this up to you all.

Also, a BIG thanks go to Mark and especially T.J. Donohue from Giant Space Robots for helping oput last night!

T.J. filled in for Danny on drums last night and performed Yeoman's duty, playing all night long! His brother MArk hung out for a while and sang a couple of blistering versions of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" and the Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman".

Again, thanks to them both for helping out the band during a rough stretch.

Which brings me to this. Danny missed the two gigs this weekend because of a severe illness in his family. Please, if you are so inclined, send out a prayer or a good thought or some good mojo to him and his family in this dark hour for them.

Blair and Lee's thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Dan.

Much love & respect to you all.

Please get well.

Tonight On Drums...

Folks, due to an emergency in his family, Danny, our drummer, will not be able to play tonight's show at Cryan's.

However, filling in for him, from Giant Space Robots is Overtime's former drummer and out good friend T.J. Donohue!

Come on out and hear this old time Overtime reunion tonight!
