At Dino’s back in the day…

Here’s a picture of The Joiners playing Dino’s Bar on Gallatin Ave. in East Nashville. We were the house band at Dino’s for a bit, playing every other weekend (when there wasn’t a NASCAR race on the TV). Back then we were a three piece, with the incomparable Joe Bidewell on the bass and harmonica and Rachel on the drums. Living in Music City and playing regular gigs at the local dive bar was my own version of living the dream. It was tons of fun and we were surrounded by so many great musicians and great friends. We’re really looking forward to playing all the old songs tomorrow night and hope to see everyone there!

Another photo from 2006 – Getting ready for Saturday’s Live Stream

Remember when I said we played on the street outside of Robert’s Western Wear? We would play inside every now and then, too. We liked to hang out downtown back in those days after our Ice Cream Shop gig, and every once in awhile whoever was playing at Robert’s would ask us if we wanted to come up and sing one or two. Of all the Honky Tonks, Roberts was our favorite. You could buy boots there too, which I did, after one or two too many drinks. I wore them once, they hurt my feet.

Daily Reminder – Live Stream Saturday

Photo by Joshua Black Wilkins circa 2006

Just another reminder about the livestream on Saturday. Here is a photo of The Joiners from the Nashville years. We had just returned from a trip across country where, by the end of it, we were homeless, broke, and driving a car without brake lights. We played on the street in front of Robert’s Western Wear on Broadway until we were invited in to play a regular gig at Dixieland Delights, an ice cream shop across the street. From there, Rae got a job at the Radio Cafe in East Nashville and we moved into a storefront on Gallatin Ave (which we even managed to rent out for an event once or twice) across from legendary dive bar Dino’s (where we became the house band).
