Survived the weekend!

Filed under: Uncategorized — robtheblogger @ 11:02 am

It was a very busy weekend (schedule in previous post) that was made slightly more complicated by Mother Nature dumping 11 inches of snow in the Dallas-Ft Worth area over a 24 hour period last Thursday.

Nonetheless, The Walton Stout band and its intrepid keyboardist manage to slog equipment through rain, sleet, snow and gloom of night to meet all weekend entertainment responsibilities.  Much needed car wash to follow.

Here’s a brief video of part of our performance over the weekend at the Glass Cactus:

3 live performances with The Walton Stout Band this weekend!

Filed under: Uncategorized — robtheblogger @ 9:22 am

I play keyboards and am the musical director for local Dallas coverband, The Walton Stout Band.  We have 3 live performances coming up this weekend.

Walton Stout is a 9-piece, non-stop, high-energy dance band.  It keeps me VERY busy.   Band instrumentation is 2 lead vocals (male & female), guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and 3 horn players (trumpet, trombone & sax).

Our horn section utilizes wireless microphones and will often leave the stage and join the patrons on the dance floor.  I’m lobbying to call them the Walton Stout Urban Assault Horn Section.  It’s not catching on yet, but I plan to keep lobbying.
