We Could, 10/6/06 Park West, Chicago, IL

Song history: This is a fairly new tune to FGC's repertoire, and I've been enjoying how it's developed over the past couple months of playing it live. It begins with a couple of laid-back verses, but then punches you in the face with a rockin' mid-section! This particular version is from our recent performance at Chicago's Park West Theater, the recording of which has been added to FGC's "official" live CD collection. Mail order yours for cheap on the Merch page, or pick up a complimentary copy at any live show!


11/26/06 - Victor Wooten and Janis

Photo History: I had the pleasure of attending Victor Wooten's show in Harrisburg PA while home in the area for Thanksgiving. For those of you not familiar with his work, Victor Wooten is internationally known as the end-all be-all of bass players, winning multiple Grammy's and countless other awards in the music industry for his work on the bass.

I made Victor's acquaintence earlier this summer at his F.U.N.K. Festival, when he caught FGC's set and later introduced himself to me. Since then, I was thrilled to get an invitation to perform with him in Myrtle Beach, SC as part of his Bass Extremes Workshop, and I'm very happy to have had a chance to get to know him better.

After the show in Harrisburg, Victor surprised me backstage by coming out of his green room wearing the WWJD shirt I had given him earlier that day, and proceeded to show it off while signing autographs for his fans. As far as I'm concerned, it really doesn't get any better than this!!

Shameless plug: Be cool like Vic and order your very own WWJD shirt right here on our site! ;)
