No opener this time, folks! It wasan entire night of ZigZaggin' energy!
The sound system's improvements were largely thwarted and the acoustics were the same!
Part of the time you could actually hear the vocals, though! Whoa! Potentially, this could be a good thing! Part of the time, it wasn't.
NO MONITORS??? Ewwwwwwwww

OK. This gig was VERY sparsely attended, maybe because Michele had a cold, hm? But acoustic ZigZag was quite the treat and hearing Dennis and Michael playing with David was... Aaaaahhhhhh.....

Well, you guys... this might have been our best show ever, making it suck even more than Sean decided to retire from his position as ZigZag's drummer. Of course, Ryan brought his mini-disk recorder to catch Sean's last show, but he never set it up, so none of the show is available for you who didn't attend. Sorry... you'll have to take our word for it that it was a great show! And Sidepocket played a VERY clean, tight set. We were glad to share the bill with them. They're also a bunch of really nice guys! We hung out with Justin, their bassist for some time after the show and he proved himself to be quite conscious!

Tuesday, May 11th 8 - 11PM
An evening of acoustic guitar and vocals with
David Taffet and Friends
The Art Bar

722 E. Burleigh
Milwaukee, WI
(414) 372-7880
Well, this was a pretty good show, not counting the first 4 or 5 tunes, the ones I did solo... those sucked lol... Michele was great! Her voice soared like a bird! Then Michael Deboer joined me for a few, then I had Ryan come up and add some harmonica, then, later, Dennis Sindberg came up and joined me and Michael for various tunes.. finally Ryan and Matt were up to do some ZigZag numbers with me... overall it was a really good night... lots of strangers came into the club and stayed the whole night... the owner of the bar let us play as late as we wanted!! That's unusual.... So, I'll be back there sometime in September, rumor has it. <smile>

 

Thursday, July 1st, 7 - 11 PM
Watertown July 4th Festival
Riverside Park, 850 Labaree St, Watertown WI
This gig, for the American Legion Post 189, was cancelled out from under us because we wanted to be paid more than $400 for the four band members and a sound man to drive an hour each way, bring, set up and run rented sound and light systems and play for four hours.

 

Friday, July 9th, 9 - 11 PM
The Gig
1132 E. Wright St.
(414) 562-0219
This was a benefit concert for the Leukemia And Lymphoma Society. We opened for an acoustic Boney Fingers set. It was nice to share a stage with the Boney guys, again! This was Mike's first gig and it went quite well. A few missed transitions and form articulations, but basically a very good show, despite our usual issues with vocal harmony. Everyone there said we sounded great! Had some girls wriggling on the dance floor and everything! Wish you'da been there!

 

THIS GIG HAS APPARENTLY RUN INTO LEGAL HASSLES OVER THE LAND THEY INTENDED TO USE, SO IT'S BEEN CANCELLED... grrrrrrrr
Saturday July 31st
Mariafest - a Jeff Jozefacki event

 

Saturday, September 11th 9:30 PM
CJ and ZigZag back-to-back, once again!!!

Coventry Jones opened for us, performing a solo acoustic set from 9:30 till 11. He was well-received and performed quite an energetic and humorous show! ZigZag played really well that night and, for a change at Treats, the sound system was actually adjusted well enough to hear all the parts, including vocals! Whoa! Unheard of! Too bad so many of our friends were out of town at the Gathering of the Heads that night... AND, we DIDN'T RECORD IT!!!!! So, no cuts from that show are on the MP3 page, sorry... if you weren't there, you weren't there, were you?

This was a pretty poorly attended show, which turned out to be ok, since our harmonica player showed up so late we played the first set as a trio. The sound mix was poor, as well. This night was the night we realized that ZigZag was on its deathbed.

Tuesday, November 23rd 8:30 - 11:30 PM
Acoustic ZigZag
!!!
Art Bar
722 E. Burleigh
Milwaukee, WI
(414) 372-7880
We performed reasonably well this night, considering the unfamiliarity with playing an acoustic set. Mike brought his plastic tub bass drum and was still able to play loudly enough that David developed blood blisters on 3 fingers by the end of the night. We all knew this to be our last show and, typical for men, managed to say little or nothing to one another about that, all evening. To those who came to see us and were taken aback by the announcement that we were done, thank you for being there!!! Thank you for HAVING been there and thank you for your interest and support over the years. You know who you are.....
