The Whappers news

We had a great time opening for The Trainwreks last night at The Garage last night. We only got asked to turn down once, and the only thing running through the PA was the kick drum and the vocals (hehehe).

Thanks to our ever-present fan Don, we have had a sting of great pictures from each performance in and around Asheville. Here are a couple from the Stella Blue gig a few weeks ago:

On my new Tama Superstars :)

The Whappers

Rocking in Boone, Part I

We pretty much rocked the house at Flipside in Boone, NC last night.  Flipside is a pizza-pub right across the street from the new sports stadium at Appalachian State, and there were tons of summer session college kids crawling all over the place in search of beer and hooking up.  Luckily, The Whappers were there to help facilitate.  And we rocked their Polo shirts and tube tops off, Asheville style.

The best part of the evening was rocking out on my new set of Tama Superstars.  These suckers are LOUD.  24 inch bass drum, the shallow style rack tom, a 16 inch floor tom, and an 18 inch floor tom.  WOW is all I can say.

And, by the way, my older set is up for sale.

We will be back at Flipside on June 19.  Look for us this coming weekend in Asheville at Stella’s!
