The guys I play with in Boca have a Hammond B3 and dig all the same styles that I do so I'm pretty gung-ho about going. It is a long haul though. I've played with these guys dozens of times and everytime I go down there, they comment on how far I drove, which I guess means they're reminding me that they're not gonna come my way anytime soon.

To me it's worth it because I have to play. I will go crazy if I can't play.

There are scores of metal heads in West Palm and it is closer than going all the way down to Pompano. Have you posted anything on the board at GC in West Palm? A lot of people network through there and you might be able to find people to play with that are closer.

BTW, how did you end up in Clewiston? You must either work at a prison or on a farm. Just kidding!
I looked from wpb to miami every day for 6 months straight before finding my current lineup (there are a bunch of CRAPPY metal bands in wpb). I'm happy with my band now but the drive just kills (literally, i had to save a guy from a burning car on my way home one night last month who fell asleep at the wheel in the middle of the night). I'm in Clewiston because i run my family's bar/grill there called Beef'O'Brady's, it's out in the sticks but imake a bunch of money off of it. What's the name of your band? maybe we can do a show together.

Clewiston/ Pompano
I don't want to work, I just want to bang on the drums all day!
