Mini-tour: The Springwater X 2

We were a little concerned on Saturday when we got a message saying our show in Franklin had been cancelled. Luckily, the folks at the Springwater Supper Club in Nashville were nice enough to let us add on to their Saturday night.


So one thing to know about the Springwater is that it’s almost a carbon copy of our home venue of Mr. T’s Bowl. For every character that hangs at Ts there is his/her counter part at the Springwater. Needless to say, we felt quite at home and made for some good shows.


Saturdays at the Springwater are Rock-a-billy nights. At one point in our Monolator history, we were quite influenced by rock-a-billy so we enjoyed the night. We don’y fit in as well these days as we may have in the past but people were still receptive to our music even if it was a little different from the rest of the night. We saw a great band named Phil Hummer and the Tecumpseh Two. They put on a very dynamic performance. Harry was only playing one drum(snare) and man was he making the most of it. Since I’m a girl drummer, I am naturally interested in other women playing more “manly” instruments and Ray was really ripping it up on the stand-up bass. I thought I had muscles, damn!


So after a very fun Saturday we returned to the Springwater for a second night on Sunday where we played with an excellent band(that we picked out) called Bows and Arrows. Unfortuntely, they are all underage so we had to hang out a lot in the parking lot before the show. They are some very talented youngsters an I’d expect to be hearing more about them in the near future.

hey, the song "you look good on the train" mysteriously appeared on my i-pod without any other info besides the song title and I just found out that you were the creators of the song like weeks later. I really am in love with that song, thank you.
