    Cale Miller took over on the bass and did a great job!
    Once again, it is a pleasure to rock out with incredible musicians.
    It was a good time regardless.
    The cold weather may have scared a lot of people.
    I want to thank Willow and her friend for showing up and supporting local live music!

    Charlie Harrison Band performed this evening here in downtown Austin on the street at Trinity and 6th St. for the Austin Wranglers 6th St. Pep Rally.
    Jason Vopni, Taylor Williams and I were all there to support Charlie for the gig.
    Let me tell you how hard it was to play in this cold weather.
    It was in the low 40's with wind gusts bringing the wind chill much lower... but, we rocked anyway.
    All of the Lady Wranglers were there dancing and selling their new 2005 Calendar.
    All of the football coaches and players were also there partying down with a whole bunch of Mardi Gras beads.
    Thanks goes out to the crew that helped with everything.
    How about the "acid dancer" that was there in front of us all night long... what was she on?!
    I enjoyed seeing and meeting all the great people out there braving the cold wind chill.
    Thanks!
    ... who's idea was this anyway?
