Thanks to everyone who came out to see us last night at the Merchant. The sound was amazing (Great job Wade! - that was a rock show firing on all cylinders last night - Wow! The ToneKats will be sharing some footage soon. Fun night! Great venue! John's fabulous new early Fender Jazz bass sounded in fine form (Note: in the cartoon he is playing a blue Rickenbacker). Thanks to Sasha Hill for the original portrait (which was great, all toon but it had Graham in it. We love Graham and he's playing with us Oct 26 (Merchant) and as a relief drummer when he can (so still great buds and part of the band) but he works away from town so Adam does the day to day drumming and is a YUGE part of the ToneKats sound adding strong vocals for lead an backing parts to compliment John and Dave's unpolished rough n ready rock voices.
