Mr Capone's Bootlegger Band Auditions

Capone's Bootlegger Band Auditions

It's been a long time since I jammed with my band, too long, and its time for that to change. I'm putting the band back together and I would love for you to be a part of it. - PC

WANTED: Drums, Bass, Organ/Keys, Horns, Rhythm Guitar, Backup Singers, and plenty of cowbell.

What I'm looking to do is put together a group of outstanding musicians who would be willing to sacrifice some of our precious free time in order to create a band capable of performing a live set at charity and promotional events around the Chicagoland area.

Cubs Fender Stratocaster

Fender Cubs Stratocaster

Fender is well known in the rock world of guitarists. Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and many other greats have used this hunk of wood to achieve greatness. Now, the team at Fender has partnered with MLB to create a special line of team guitars. Yes, they do look very cool.

So far, 15 different models are available including a All-Star version. Since I’m from Chicago, I have to admit the Cubs version caught my eye instantly. It might not be my favorite design of the bunch.. but a Cubs guitar?!?! SOLD!

Unfortunately, I did not see a White Sox guitar at this time.

The LOOP has been playing the Police since the beginning, and there is not doubt about the musical ability of all of their members. Although, I wonder sometimes if our boy Stewart Copeland gets his fair due as a drummer.

We often hear people talk about Neil from Rush, or John from Zep, even Keith from the Who, and these are all excellent examples of rock drummers at the top of their game. But what about Stew?
