Laverne's First Gig
The best band in Maine, Unorganized Hancock, has finally found a bass player. Her name is Laverne.
Like Charlie Maine (the guitar player), the Neon Kid (the drummer), and Slim McGillicuddy (he holds the sign and sorts the M&Ms) Laverne comes from something of a sketchy background. We found her hanging around the lumber yard, which is really no place for a lady. She looked really thin and lonely, so we took her home and adopted her. We tarted her up a bit, but girls secretly like that sort of thing. Even Goth chicks wear lipstick. It's just another color.
Anyway, Laverne is a great bass player. She's certainly the most reliable of all the bass players Unorganized Hancock has tried. She's purdier. She never plays too loud. She isn't shy, and looks right at the audience the whole time. All in all, she's a pro, and a tad more intelligent than most bass players, and all drummers.
Maybe it's just me, but I got a background vibe that Slim McGillicuddy is rather sweet on Laverne. Call me an old softie, but I hope those two crazy kids get together someday and have a baby or two. Their children would probably be credenzas or etageres or something, but their parents would love them just the same I'm sure.
