Hi, folks! Long time no see. First off, this post ain’t about machinima, so if you’re seeing this on the machinifeed let me apologize now and say no animations to be found here.
I have put together a video of my recently reunited band called Slick City. We have been playing the local club scene again after about a five year break and were once again invited to perform at the Big Bear Lake Antique Car Club’s annual street dance. I took my cheap little video camera along to document our show. It’s definitely not HD! So I will also beg your pardon now for that.
Slick City came about in 1998 as the house band for the local bowling alley. The theme was ’50s and ’60s rock and roll, so I learned many doo-wop songs - some that were hits before I was even born. We played there almost every weekend for over two years. The original configuration was, Terry Copley, Steve Johnson, Scott Arnett and your’s truly. We became known for our four-part harmonies and ability to share the job of lead singer between us.
Scott dropped out about a year and a half into the house band gig, and we filled the hole he left with quite a few talented local performers. The original configuration reunited every year for the car club’s street dance, that is up until 2004. Around that time Steve and Terry formed a jazz band with Mike Weins called Catz in the Hatz and have been going strong for many years now.
Scotty’s still not back with Slick City, but Mike Weins has stepped up and joined in. Here is the (relatively) new Slick City playing the street dance on Saturday, Aug. 8, 2008. Again, sorry for the poor video and audio quality.
