I would like to take a moment to thank all the people who have hired me to play music for their events so far this year. Mar 2012 was great with 13 shows (including the 2 open mics I hosted at Lovell's) plus some stage time at Paul Allodi's (Since I Was Three) band karaoke on Thurs. Mar. 29th at Tailgaters in Bolingbrook. This past weekend was a blast with a duo performance at the Countryside Saloon in Des Plaines where we kept going until past 1am. A few memorable songs performed Friday night were: No Excuses - Alice In Chains, Plush - Stone Temple Pilots, Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People, All For You - Sister Hazel, Free Yet - Bobby Rex, Bizarre Love Triangle - New Order, and about 35 more songs from the 50s to today. The duo really rocked. We even managed to get in I Left My Heart In San Franciso - T. Bennett & That's Amore - Dean Martin.
The Saturday night Mar 31st Biff and the Waybacks benefit show for American Cancer Society Relay for Life at D's Sports Bar and Betting facility at Arlington Park Racetrack went phenomenal also. Biff and the Waybacks' 5-piece rock n' roll cover band performed party favorites in between raffles, auctions, and benefit announcements. Attendance was good and much money was raised for the cause. Biff and the Waybacks are still available for summer dates so contact Bobby or Paul to set something up if you are having a party and want a fun, rockin' cover band (with saxophone) and over 400 songs in our repertoire to choose from.
