Show Recap: At The Boiler Room with The Non’s & The 71’s

Eric Keyes Live at the Boiler Room

I had a great time playing at The Boiler Room last week.

We tried out some new tunes and it was great to see so many good friends and make some new ones.

We played with two good bands – The Non’s from Oklahoma and The 71’s from my hometown Houston, TX.

The 71’s had some serious gear and speaking of gear can you believe I am down to just one amp right now? My beloved Kendrick built for me by Gerald Weber in Plugerville. No worries as I put some money down on a killer amp built in Germany a Bogner “Ecstacy” I have to tell you it sounds great and I am excited.

There is a great joke I love;

“Heaven, is where the Germans are the engineers, the Italians are the lovers, the French are the cooks and the English are the administrators.”

“Hell, is where the English are the cooks, the Italians are the administrators, The Germans are the lovers and the French are the Engineers.”

Fun stuff,

Since I was between “amps” I borrowed my good friend and master engineer Eric Delegard’s Peavey Classic 50 and ran my trustworthy Ibanez “Tube Screamer” through it. That little amp is a monster as you can hear.

Well I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for coming out and I have some very exciting news coming on the Horizon as well as shows coming up in Austin, Houston, Dallas and Oklahoma.

All in the name of Rock and Roll,
