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.

I noticed her in the video. Lovely, and talk about stage presence! Slim is a lucky feller.

They could use a purdy girl singer, too. Mebbe Mrs. Sippi could do that backstage with a speaker hidden behind the bass.

Looks a bit like a young Carol.

The best bass players I've seen don't try to do solos and they finish on time with the rest of the band.

Glad the band is filling out.

La Verne is the name of the town I live in.
Oh well as long as she doesn't drink too much she'll be better than the majority of bass players I've worked with-
Keep up the good work guys and congrats
