Sick Stooges Press Onward
As a second season winds down for Sick Stooges, it's heartening to know that we have expanded our fan base, played in new and different locations and for various events along the Grand Strand, and will continue to work throughout what's known as the off-season here.
Looking back at the Season, we have been fortunate, but in retrospect, we should be seriously thinking about a booking agent, or simply push harder to gain access into places like The Boathouse, which always seems to have a thriving concert series during the summer.
But in addition to various bars like Pat & Mikes Irish Pub, Wild Wing Cafe, Nesbitt's Jackass Saloon and Still Smokin' in Surfside, we have played Celebrity Square at Broadway at the Beach thanks to Craig Smith at Celebrations Nightlife, opened for Zoso at House of Blues - and although things weren't at all what we expected or wanted, the Carolina Entertainment Complex in Marion.
So is it easy selling the idea of juggernaut six-piece band to local clubs at a price we can all live with? Sometimes, but you get what you pay for.
We had a blast all summer, and look forward to new gigs and new faces in the immediate future.
