Grogg at the Stork Club - Oakland, CA 2002

I was in a band called Grogg with Cody Grimm, Brian Kirk, Nate McFadden and Davin Bogan.

We played at the Stork Club in Oakland - which if you've never been there is/was a club that had Christmas decor all year round, as well as a huge Barbie Doll collection, pinball machines and a pool table.  We got paid in drink tokens -- that were labeled as Wooden Nickles, and I think we got $20 total for playing. This was a place that both Meeshee & Grogg played on several occasions. We're glad some video of Grogg survived, but are dismayed that this all happened 10 years ago.  Time flies. Don't take wooden nickels unless it = a free Pabst.

 

Something for your ears:
