For those of you who don’t know, One Four Fives keys-man extraordinaire AL GAMBLE has his own organ trio, The City Champs, and they are dynamite. I just got my copy of their newest LP, The Set Up, and it’s unreal. Featuring a timely cover of “Theme From Madmen“. Pick it up! The release party is Oct. 29 at the Buccaneer Lounge here in Memphis.
As some of you may know, our bassist, Mark E. Stuart, was diagnosed this past spring with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
However…we’re happy to report that he has officially beaten it, and completed his last treatment a couple weeks ago. He’s back playing with us again like nothing ever happened. So congratulations to Mark.
Also, founding One Four Fives member Kevin Cubbins became a dad again last week, for the second time. So congrats to Cubby!
Lastly, there’s not much in the way of touring or gigs on the radar at the moment – we’re taking some time to get started again on our second album, which is being recorded at Dial Back Studio in Water Valley, Mississippi. We’ll keep you posted.
