As you might expect it takes a lot of effort on our part to pull off a show in Sin City. This years crew is pictured above L-R Kenny Hogg- Bass Uke & Vocals, Jesse Braintree - Vocals and Bannana, Kitty Hogg - Vocals and Dancin, Kash Hogg - Guitar & Vocals, Lisa Mari Hogg - Vocals, Stevie Joe Hogg- Guitar, and Joe Joe Hogg on Roland Drum Kit.
Kenny arrived 1st on Sunday the 18th from Dallas into Las Vegas around 10 AM, and then Jesse arrived around 4 PM so Kenny was already hanging on the strip. They checked into our hotels and we planning on getting Kash around 7-8 PM and realized Guitar Center was closed and we needed to rent a guitar for Stevie who was still en-route with Lisa Mari from Ohio. So they pick up Kash and he has the drum kit bass and his guitar. Kenny uses some program he has on his phone and he locates a guy selling a guitar for 40 bucks. He tells Jesse maybe we can borrow a guitar, and he's all stressed as usual and then he tells him he found a guitar so they drive to get that. But when they see the guitar it has only 4 strings and no amp to plug it in so Kenny talked him down to 30 bucks and then they drive another 20 minutes to get a mike stand for 20 bucks. Then they pick up Me and JoeJoe and off to the club we go. We have no clue where we can get strings so we are hoping someone has some there. We arrive around 9:45 and eventually talk to Today's Paramount, cool band from Denver CO that was setting up and they saved the day. Kash strung the guitar, or Kenny I forgot and when Stevie Joe arrived he just picked it up and played. We met a Boston music legend Joe Black who has a new CD "Blackenstein" that rocks. He sat in with us on Green Haze . GREEN HAZE- Jesse & The Hogg Brothers with Joe Black on bass
Anyway we did get through the drama but there's always more and was but that's it on the blog!
