Happy Thanksgiving

We are thankful you have chosen to spend some time with this crazy band from New Orleans.

Fred Solo Shows

Fred here. Just wanted to let you guys know that during the month of December I will be playing a select number of solo / acoustic shows in different cities, in addition to my traditional New Orleans Christmas Night show at Carrolton Station. I'll be playing Thursday, December 3 in Washington DC at Hill Country Live DC, as well as in New York City at Hill Country Live NY on Friday, December 4. More dates should be coming, and I look forward to seeing all of you there! Happy Holidays!

Kind Words

"They did save my soul! On one of the worst days of my life I had tickets to see Cowboy Mouth. I'm so glad I had gone to the show that evening. They lifted my spirits and made me Glad to be Alive!! I'll always be a Cowboy Mouth fan!!!" - Anthony Bernardo 

Thank you, Anthony.

Meat And Potatoes Bass

CC: How have you changed as a bass player over the years?

Brian: My bass playing just evolves over time. I have a different outlook than some people do. I'm not on the technical side of learning every possible scale. I'm more of a meat and potatoes kind of player. Keep it simple. And I'm also about performing. I think part of a good rock and roll show is going out there and owning it. Being happy and making the people happy.

Grateful And Humbled

It was great to see our buddies Collective Soul, who were the headliner and sounding excellent as ever. But the real surprise was the event itself; Deadwood Jam was one of the most fun events we've played in a while; the vibe and scenery were just superb and the crowd could not have been any more receptive or enthusiastic. I think we made a lot of new converts that night.

Later that night we all went to hang at Saloon No. 10 enjoying some adult beverages courtesy of the generous staff and patrons there. Laurie (the owner of the bar who had the coolest ring) gave me a tour and the history of the place pointing out that it was where Wild Bill Hickok was gunned down back in the late 1800's. Matt and I both took turns jamming with the house band, and I can honestly say that the only reason I knew and was able to play drums on Katy Perry's "Fireworks" song with the cover band that night is because it was featured in the kids movie Madagascar 3 that my boy loved. What a fun night all around.

On the flight home a cool thing happened that I wanted to share; As I was walking through the airport to make my connecting flight, a younger gentleman (no names, you'll see why) stopped me and told me a story about getting his son onstage with the band a couple of years ago and how appreciative he was. That's always great to hear. He seemed like he wanted to say more, but we both just let it go telling each other to have a great trip.

Then it turned out that he was on the same flight as me. I was in the back of the plane, and he was more towards the front. As we were some of the first people on the plane, he put his bag down and walked the length of the aircraft to come tell me that he had been in recovery for 141 days and that our music, specifically "I Believe", had helped him find his way and that he listened to us every single day to help him get thru it. I smiled thru the lump in my chest, gave him a big hug, and thanked him for his story. I could tell it was very personal to him and that it took a lot for him to step out of his comfort zone to tell me. And as it so happened, it was exactly the kind of thing I needed to hear at that moment.

I'm always extremely grateful and humbled whenever people use what I/we do as a catalyst for some sort of positive in their lives. I know this kind of thing happens to performers/musicians a bit, but it still amazes me that people use what we do sometimes to find the better in themselves. It can be a bit overwhelming in the moment, but it's one of the main reasons that I continue to do what I do. It really is gratifying to know that whether intentional or not, you might've helped somebody in their journey on this giant rock to step just a little easier. What a great gift to be given. And to the guy who came up and told me his story on the plane, thank you so much. You gave me a lot more than you realize.
