  1. it was fun, people seemed to be really getting into the songs, even though many were not familiar with many of them. Many seemed appreciative of us not just playing the TPATH hits. Would definitely do it again. Here's a video of some clips from the set.
  2. well, we're a TP&TH tribute band, but we're doing a special Mudcrutch show tomorrow night.
  3. For anyone in the SF Bay Area, we're doing a special 1 hour Mudcrutch tribute set tomorrow night at Club Fox in Redwood City. Come on out and say hi, it should be a blast. Attached a little sample from a previous show Shady Grove Wrong Thing to Do Scare Easy Trailer Orphan of the Storm Save Your Water Lover of the Bayou Dreams of Flying Victim of Circumstance 6 Days on the Road Don't Do Me Like That wrong_thing_to do.mp3

  5. We appreciate all your votes last year that helped us win the 2009 best tribute band award in the KFOX 98.5 contest. Now we're asking for your support once again to try for a repeat victory in 2010! For those of you that have seen us, you know we do our best to recreate Tom's music and bring it to local stages for fans. If you haven't seen us yet, then hopefully you will soon! FYI, we will be doing a show in November in Florida at Stetson University - our first east coast gig! Here is the link to vote - if you voted last year, you should be able to use the same email address and not have to enter any other information again. and the main link to the KFOX contest And here is our homepage in case you want to listen to some more music before making you're decision :003: www.refugeesrock.com
  6. if you buy it, let me know what you think. Our lead guitar player has a Duesenberg 12 string he really likes. I have a Rick 660-12 but I almost never play it, I just don't like the way it feels.

  8. calling the DQ booking guy is on my list. Problem has been my list is long, and other stuff keeps getting added to it!
  9. I know there are some people on here around Santa Cruz, so thought I'd throw this up here. We're playing at the Capitola Art & Wine festival, 5-7pm. Sounds like the sound guys are bringing a good rig, so it should be a good show. Weather is supposed to be good too, sunny mid-70's. www.refugeesrock.com
  10. yeah, that's what I'm saying, we have to bring 2 more guitars, and tune 2 more guitars. We already bring about 6-8.
  11. we have been rehearsing this one, it's fun to play. Although having to bring an extra guitar tuned down a whole step to play it is going to be kind of a pain. The band really has to be in sync for this to sound right, since multiple people are playing the same riff/line. Kind of like "Oh Well". Anyone slightly off just kills it, especially the descending riff after the stops. Sounds cool when you get it right though.
  12. don't you think no reason to cry sounds like Knopfler?
  13. hmmm, I like his voice much better in something good coming.
