Welcome to a behind-the-scenes look at the "glamorous" life of a working musician.

And then the penquin said "What do you think I am, a radio!"     Part A goes into Slot B     You put your left foot in ...     
We were the backup band for the Colgate Country Music Showdown held at Wolff Stadium Aug. 28.  Here we are setting up on home plate.

Setting up on home plate     Out in the sun too long!

Rehearsal is sometimes fun!        Arrrrrh!

Here are some backstage photos from July 4 at the Lackland AFB Star-Spangled Spectacular:

We recently played for the St. Padre Pio Catholic Church Festival.  It was really muddy out on the baseball field and we needed help getting our equipment to the stage.  Thanks to the Boy Scouts for helping out!

World's Tallest 4th Grader!          John directs the Boy Scouts          He runs a tight ship!

Sometimes we even get called on for extra duty.  Ralph helped with the live auction at the Reagan High School Sports Assn. fundraiser:

Recently Tony played in the Tim Duncan Charity Golf Classic held at The Palmer Course, La Cantera.  In January Tony, Chilton, and Ralph participated in Tim's 2003 Bowlathon.  Here are some photos:

We relaxed after an extremely busy December and celebrated the success of 2002 with dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.  John's buying dinner next time!

But it's not all work and no play!  Recently, Cactus Country Band sponsored a team at the Tim Duncan Bowling-For-Dollars charity event to benefit cancer research.  Little did we know, our drummer Ralph Guzman CAN BOWL!  Our team won Best Game, Game 2 at the event.  Everyone had a wonderful time!
