One of the groups I play with is touring through Prescott and backing up a local artist there. I can't make it, and apparently their local potential just fell through. The rep is 'classic soul plus a few country tunes for the old white folks.' Red flags went up on the 'classic soul,' but I asked and it seems NOT to be a "Mustang Sally gig." He mentioned Gladys Knight, Hall & Oates, plus Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, and Roy Orbison, plus originals.

PM for more info if you're interested. I told them I'd put the call out and would love to help both them and a KC brother out if possible.

I used to gig in Prescott (pronounced "Press-cut" by the locals) pretty regularly back in the '80s in Phoenix-based bands. It was a fun town to play in back then and a great place to escape from the sweltering heat of Phoenix during the summer.

I'd be interested if I were still gigging in that region.

Best,

Geoff

I keep hearing it as "Press Kit Arizona."

I took the kids there a couple of years ago on the way to the Grand Canyon. Cool little town.

Yep. Have a friend who lives there and I visit 5-6 times a year (since I am only 90 miles away) and all it hear is "Press-kit" (except for all the Californians who have moved there to avoid the coming quake - or so they say).

Just bumping this in case any potential players haven't seen it. They are still looking...
