We decided to start the New Year off showcasing Pete Everett with a House
version of "I Found Lovin". I know we
can't top the original and we're not trying, because that's history. I know we came out early last year with a version,
but the Cookie Monster did a remix that we think is nice. What we did was just update it the way Pete felt. Check his bio and song out, here.
We're doing new music with Pete as lead, so if any of you guys have some
material for us let me know via e-mail Bill.firstname.lastname@example.org
The way things look now we're going to hit a few new cities
this year. A lot of you ask, "Why don't you
visit our city"? Well, sometimes the problem is that the promoters don't know
of us or they don't book funky music. Other times, we just can't get enough
dates together to cover the plane cost from the USA. Promoters think funk is dead, but funk is
making a comeback and live music is coming back. You just have to keep demanding
the funk and support it and tell your friends about the music. Turn them on to
a funk site; bring them out to a show. What we're trying to get going is
visiting colleges and talking about music- Where today's music comes from, how
it all came about, etc. That's what's missing
here in the USA:
Funk Music Appreciation 101.
As you know we have been trying to build an e-mail fan database
with like minded music lovers. If you'd
like to share some of your friends with us that would be great, and we can
share ours with you. This is for Fatback Band use only. We hope to do some new
things with our site, so check us out from time to time. One thing we're trying
to do is a download each month from our old catalog. We call it the album of the month in which we
talk about the making of the album. Now the next thing is, we're putting some
of Lyrics to the songs up. If any you guys have a favorite album or song you
want us to put up let me know via e-mail Bill.email@example.com. We posted Linda Blakely Bio. She's the voice you hear on "I Found lovin". She was the inspiration for the song. True
story. One more new thing in the works
for site, links for former members of the band who have sites, as well as more
pictures. Now this is where you come
in. On every gig we will pass out two
small cameras for pictures for the site. We want the site to be fan friendly.
It's your site, so give me your feedback and any suggestions.
