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 cards!
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.
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’.
The Texas Poker Store has released its new poker song and music video with its own final table just in time for y’all to enjoy before the 2012 WSOP Octo Nine meet at this year’s “Final Table.” To celebrate our release, we are presenting a Rock n Roll concert at the Grand Stafford Theater in Historic Downtown Bryan, Texas, on October 27. The concert features Tracii Guns’ League of Gentlemen, Randy Pavlock with Twenty Four Seven, and BoJest. Randy Pavlock and Jim Paris wrote “I May Be Bluffin” and Randy performed it in fine style with a rockin’ cast and amazing crew. Check it out and then Like it so we know y’all enjoyed it, after all we did push our poker chips all in just to please y’all.
