The New Guy

Bob Carle, aka the New Guy

As you may have noticed, our Rick Prinsthal is one busy dude. Lately, he's been busy playing guitar in Robin Magder Pierce's excellent band. They have a CD coming out, and we're all very happy for them. Hope they sell a million!

That said, we do have gig obligations to fulfill, and we want them to be up to our usual standard. As a result, we've called upon another old friend; singer/guitarist Bob Carle, who our drummer, Dave, has been gigging with since high school.

Though we've retained a lot of our old act, Bob's vocal style does suggest a range of new material to explore, and we've spent the last couple of months woodshedding to see how the new stuff sounds. Those of you who came out to the American House on March 30 were able to see the result first-hand.

We certainly haven't closed the door on working with Rick again in the future; he and I have been friends for almost 40 years.  That said, we are very excited to see where working with Bob takes us.

We'll be advertising the gigs we do with Bob as "Bob C and the 3d's", which we think has a nice ring to it. Stay tuned; it should be a fun summer!
