Twenty-four Hours Before Winter Time

The Tim and Bob Show returned to Patty Lou's for a pre-Christmas gig on Sunday, December 14. As it turned out, it was a pre-winter gig as well. Less than 24 hours after the daytime performance ended. temperatures had dropped more than 40 degrees!

I'm sure it wasn't anything we said!

As usual, Patty Lou's was warm and inviting for us. There were plenty of folks there throughout the time we played, and they were responsive and appreciative. Some of them even took home CDs as really cool Christmas presents. We played most of our holiday material, along with our usual mix of originals and covers. Kathy's version of "Santa Baby" got a good reception, as did our four-parters.

Tim and Bob National Casey showed up for pancakes and tunes. We also made some new friends.

We'll be back to Patty Lou to usher in the New Year, as we have in the past. It's fun to go there; it's like being at home -- except someone else washes the dishes!

Tim and Bob Invade Atascosa County!!!!!!!!!

Okay, that might be hyperbole, but on Sunday, December 7th, we did celebrate Kathy's birthday by performing our first ever gig south of San Antonio, at Drive Bar and Grill. This new establishment is part of the Yards complex on Route 16 about four miles south of Rte 1604 on the way to Poteet.

Darin and Ashley were our hosts, although Darin felt a bit under the weather and left it all to his able sister. Drive is a great location and features good service and exceptional food. I had the penne and sausage special, Mary Lou had the black bean lasagna recommended to her by our friend Dana, Steve had the pulled pork sandwich, while Kathy's birthday treat was the asiago chicken. Great stuff.

We set up inside and prepared to play for what turned out to be a small but very enthusiastic crowd. The highlight for all of us was when Kathy sang "Crazy." As we have done on occasion, Mary Lou and I celebrated our absence from the bandstand by dancing together. This time we were joined by some patrons. Fun stuff.

By the end of the evening, we had made some new friends, and had what we all agreed was one of our most fun gigs in recent memory.

After reading all this, I'll bet you're sorry you weren't there. Don't worry, I get the feeling that The Tim and Bob Show will be returning to Drive in the new year. Look for us when we do. You'll enjoy the friendliness, the comfort, the great food and service and, of course, the music!
