Bret Domrose

I'm looking forward to seeing Bret Domrose play at the Viper Room next month.
It will be the third time I've seen him play solo, each time at the Viper.
The first time was before I had seen Dogstar play live. Way back in February of 2000, when his first CD, Rough Around the Edges was released. It was pretty exciting. I'd never been to the notorious Hollywood club before. I was suprised at how small and intimate it was. That night the place was packed, Rob Mailhouse was there, and all in all it was a damn good time. I bought a copy of the CD straight from Bret, and had him sign it. I listened to it non-stop for months afterward. I saw Dogstar 7 times before I saw Bret solo again, just this past March. Again it was at the Viper. The crowd was much smaller, but Bret still rocked us all out. Small crowds are always nice for the fans that do show up. I got to talk to Bret that night, and he was really friendly and appreciative that we'd traveled to see him. Needless to say the trip is always worth it, whether it's Dogstar or Bret solo. Whether you get to shake hands, talk for a minute or just enjoy the show.
It's all about the music, and good music it is.
In fact, I think that Bret's solo stuff is even better than Dogstar's. Rough around the edges or not, EDGE is the key word.
I hear that a second CD will be released soon. I heard a couple of the new songs in March and they are fabulous. Hopefully, I'll be able to get one in a couple weeks at the show.
Oh, the photos above were all taken by me at the Dogstar show last April at The Backbeat in Santa Clara. The man is so photogenic when he plays.

Rock on.

krix, I hadn't even thought about it (duh!), but yes, Rob might just show up on the 20th. Man oh man, can't hardly wait!
