MAXIMVS! played the Circle Bar without our actual guitar player.
by David Rhoden. Day .
This show was downright silly. Our "real" guitarist, Trey Ledford, a.k.a "CLAVDIVS", couldn't make it, but the songs were so damn simple IN MY MIND I figured I couldd play them. With no rehearsal. Our friend Anthony Donato offered to play the drum kit, again, with no rehearsal that I can recall.
Right before the gig, Jeff ("BRVTVS") asked me if I knew the Bobbie Gentry song "M-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p-i" (actually titled "Mississippi Delta"). When I said yeah, he asked if we could play it? What the hell...It went as well as could be expected which means different things depending on your expectations.
