Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

Cant you all just get along and keep playing your good music to all your fans and put this to rest. Both of you are great bands and this is beneath you all!!!

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

..i cant figure out if Scene Der Blok's comment is a compliment or slam on/for Dr. Squid. I guess if they're playing to packed houses, drinking for free and getting paid almost anything for an extra hour they must be pretty good. Hmmmm.

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

Yeah Dr Squid needs to shutup and go back to all their packed houses and free drinks and all those fans willing to pay almost anything for an extra hour of their music... You lost Squid! Next year get a copy machine!

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

SJ and t/Sinners-what's lost in this whole thread is the righteous b*&!@# slapping y'all got from Bob Doran. He totally punked you guys for cheating and your responses on this blog do nothing to dispell his suggestion that yer nothin but a bunch of whiner wannabees. Bogus "elections" get you bogus "winners." Just ask George Bush.

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

St Jon and his sinners appear to be a pitiful bunch. I won't be going to see them anytime soon. I wanna hear Vintage Soul.

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

One thing St. John and crew clearly lack: a sense of humor. Easy on the defensiveness SJ&S!. The squid guy wrote one humorous entry (obviously in jest) and the rest has been you guys defending yourselves. Ms Weaver, perhaps you should practice what you preach/sing. Get over over it and focus on your music. I haven't heard either band but judging from your entries (and the nature of your "victory"), SJ&S seems to be suffering from a little envy. Go home and practice.

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

I'd just like to say that as the vocalist for St. John and The sinners I feel we've worked very hard , and the message I myself like to send out as a vocalist is one that transcends the foolish ego frippery and truly connects with the audience, whether I'm singing a sassy, satirical Willie Dixon interpretation or a heart string pulling ballad. We've worked very hard because we love what we do and we love our fans, that being said there are many bands in Humboldt County that work very hard and have a good message such as Moo-Got 2, Absynth Quintet, Bump Foundation, the Fickle Hillbilies etc who are all deserving of praise, and still continue to connect with their audiences and spread a good vibe and aren't losing sleep over this poll. Our music may not be to everyones taste but our fans believed in us enough to vote, as did my friends and family, so get over it and focus on your music Dr. Squid

More power to Vintage Soul and Dr. Squid! St. John who? Oh well, you snooze you lose. Maybe I'll catch up with them when they return. Hey Dr. Squid President, you want to make it a date?

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

St. John definately works hard campaigning! The Sinners are a great band, but any band that put that much effort into soliciting votes would have won. Even 1 vote at ONLY 175 of their gigs would have likely pushed them over the top.
And we can't blame St. John for not being familiar with the "NEW" sound of Dr. Squid. "Well over 175 shows in the last year and a half...not including many benefits for worthy causes" (about 3 shows per week?) doesn't leave much time for anything else, let alone supporting other bands. Hopefully the Sinners can find time when they get back from Europe to come out and listen, and I'm sure they'll agree - NO BAND ROCKS THE NORTH COAST LIKE DR. SQUID! Especially with their new additions Ric Nelson, Bridget DeVaney and Jim Dale... BTW - Nighthawk is awesome, but my next favorite band (after Dr. Squid of course)...Vintage Soul.

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

Hey Squid bob...We worked very hard and have played well over 175 shows in the last year and a half...not including many benefits for worthy causes... How long have you guys been Dr. Squid...ten years?? wow!! Squidboys need to know that there's a NEW band in town. Isn't that a song? We love you guys and wish you all the success that humboldt has to offer. The Sinners are moving on to Monterrey Blues Festival, and a tour of Europe. Nighthawk is our favorite band!!

Re: “Best Of Humboldt -- Readers' Picks

I know for a fact we hand delivered tons of ballots at our shows and emailed our list of fans. The ballots were collected again by hand from those who wrote in Saint John and the Sinners for best band and were turned in as well as online folks who did in some instances use the same computer. Better luck next year Dr. Squid. Come on out to see us and you be the judge! I agree with Bob, we do have great local bands that the community can choose from. I go see plenty and support them when we are not performing.
