Singing Memories
 
Hasnt been a new thread posted on this forum in awhile so I took it upon myself to do one, not the basic whos good and what drum group blah blah blah....but maybe some crazy singing stories. Like this one time I was at a powwow and Howard Cozad was head singer and wanted me to start a song for the womens cloth contest, powwow was huge and I came out with a loud A** lead, halfway through the lead I forgot the song....then said real loud....NEVErMind. I was embarrased...I got more...what about you?

dang dude.

back when I was singing northern, the group decided to sing the group song....well, we had sang the song w/ a tail on it before. as we got ready to go into the end....I started up to sing the tail and then stoped....sounded like a chicken gettin' strangled.....

I was the brunt of the joke for the rest of the pow wow.

This one time.....I was singing with Ottertrail at Kinder,,,,when the bar was open and free....all I know is I made it back to my room somehow....ahhh....the moments we dont remember

sltate 03-15-2004 02:11 PM

I think every singer who ever went to Kinder has a "that one time at Kinder" story. LOL That's a fun pow wow. St. Croix, too....that Karaoke thing was crazy. My little sister said there were modern tee pee creepers at the casino hotel at ST.Croix, a few well known ones at that.LOL You go, knivvy!!!

Well, since we are reminesing
I have a question.
Has any one out there ever accidently spit out or almost choke on your Halls while singing?

Dawg Stylez 03-23-2004 03:05 PM

:lol: After a while you develop a notch in your cheek where the cough drops or gum will sit perfectly.

There's this one guy that sings with us, and he has a drumstick head sewn onto his stick bag. Every time someone new sits at the drum, he has to tell the story about the "stick head that almost killed him, or at least made him sing with the ladies for the day" The bad thing is it was a stick he had made!!!

Now he beaded it up and carries it around like some kind of trophy! Right there hanging from the stick bag..... :rofl:

This one time at a powwow my aunt had grilled kindeys :7: for sale. She only grills the out side. So anyways my aunt gives me one and I start to greeze on it, :ready2eat all of a sudden Kidney pissy juice ran all down my good white shirt. They had a special, and they wanted all of singers to getup and shake their hands. :agree?: I Had this Fresh bigg Purple stain on the front of my shirt. Man all the folk whoes hands we had to shake were all busten up laughing at me. :10: :mocking: :Chatter :rofl2:

This one time i was jammin wit my friends. It was goin all good, till they told me to start one. We started(by the way this was one of my first times starting a song) and i thought it would go all good cause it hadnt happen the whole time. i started to sing when my voiced cracked really hard. I was so shamed out. They were all cracking up at me, they said it sounded like i was trying to sing northern style when i wasnt.LOL. But its been all good every since. Thank God.

Singing Memories
 
One time i was at a powwow with my bro's...just thought i would take a break and sing with them for once...it went alright for the first song...then comes time for the second song of the night...one of my younger bro's wanted to start...so i said go ahead...so we started off good...good beat...good song...second start...he's my bro...all good and clear...he was jammimg...i was proud of him for about 2 seconds...then he forgot the lead...then right in the middle...he stops...too late..."ah f#@k...and he happened to be the one by the mic...and the whole arena heard him...i was embarrassed for him...he was the laughing stock of the powwow...it was all fun...but i was glad at that moment that my bro's don't travel that much...

Well here's my story.. I was recording a drum and this was a long time ago like maybe 6 years ago or so. There was a bunch of people standing there watch the drum sing and the usual group of recorders and this guys was kneeling behind on the singers and his head was right there... Once the drum started kickin it up then "whack" knocked that guy right in the face.. he looked so stunned. It was freakin hilarious but there's more! The drum stick head got blasted off from the impact! The piece of beat up buckskin when flyin off somewhere and everyone around was tryin not to bust out laughin til the song was over. I had to walk away from that one.. I laughed all weekend.. that guy was alright just stunned by all of it.. lmao
