Someone recently asked if I ever played poker while touring the world in my past Rock & Roll history, so I decided to re-post the following. Check it out!

…In the past I have written about rock and roll and alluded to my personal rock ‘n roll past. I wrote about contributing to the Buddy Miles biography in a press release that you can read here, and I have written about how, when we were touring, we often played poker to kill time while cruising in our “Stretched out Silver Eagle” going from one gig to the next. I’ve even written a few poker lyrics  that ended up in a collaboration between my wife, myself and the incredibly talented Randy Pavlock. That collaboration ended up with the Texas Poker Store producing the music video of “I May Be Bluffin.”

Recently, a friend sent me this pic of Buddy Miles actually trying to read my poker face, and if memory serves me correctly, he was holding a pair of cowboys that were no match for my trip queens. Buddy was always  much better at playing drums than playing Poker!

Y’all remember that we love music, and combining it with our love for poker is one of our favorite pastimes. You know that is why we have posted so many poker songs in the past and you may even remember that we asked for your input whenever you heard any new poker songs. Well, it turns out that one of our followers not only loves/hates poker (like many of us) but he’s also an accomplished musician, song writer, folk singer with a Dylansque bluesy feel that intrigued us enough to bring him to your attention.

Dean Shaw - Swamp SpruceLay down those rockets boy, lay down that hand … or so says the Poker Man. That’s what Dean Shaw is saying in his new poker song, “Poker Man.” Dean says it like a man who’s been there before and probably has felt the pain of a bad beat but always gone back for more. You know he’s laid down a few hands at the tables.

I know that I can relate to this song because I’ve held Pocket Rockets many a time and many a time felt the sting of a bad beat, but just as Dean tells it; I’ll play whenever I can and that’s why I’m a Poker Man. Listen to his song here!

So when you are at the poker tables don’t be afraid to lay down those rockets when you can feel a bad beat coming.

So tonight is the night of our party celebrating the release of our song and music video “I May Be Bluffin'” and it’s expected to be an incredibly hot night in Bryan/College Station, Texas . . . despite the fact that the weather has finally turned and delivered a cold front. But when you have BoJest seducing the crowd with her “Kissing It On”, Randy Pavlock and Twenty Four Seven turning up the heat with their new hits, “Street Walking” and “I May Be Bluffin'”  and finally, Tracii Guns’ League of Gentlemen laying down “Back Side of the Moon”, you are sure to sweat the night out at the Grand Stafford Theater.

We co-wrote the song “I May Be Bluffin'” with Randy Pavlock as a theme for the Texas Poker Store, but we now realize that it’s much more than just a song about pushing your poker chips all in. We hope you, too will pick up on the song’s double entendre as well as the bluesy-country down-home rhythm of the music.

The "I May Be Bluffin" music video dancers

After all these months of pre-production, production and post-production, we released the music video of our song “I May Be Bluffin,”  and tomorrow night we will celebrate it in style by presenting a concert at the Grand Stafford Theater in historic downtown Bryan, Texas. The concert features Tracii Guns and his League of Gentlemen, Randy Pavlock and Twenty Four Seven, and Austin’s female pop sensation, BoJest.

Last night we had a friendly Texas Hold ’em tournament where many of our video stars participated, and although they’re pretty good poker players, none of them cashed. Looks like they’d be better off sticking to playing in music videos than playing at the real poker tables. Just sayin’.
