TEN DAY WISH.
The Rockin' Billy Goat was the last Ten Day Wish show.
Steve Tankersley (Tank) lost his fight to covid Nov. 23rd.
Without him, there can be no Ten Day Wish.
We found out the day before Ben Travis that used to perform with Tanya and I and Jim Harrison in Ten Day/Two Way had passed.
I have not felt this way since I lost my Mom.
I have one luxury; I can go back and listen to some great recordings.
I have not only my recordings, but those of John Phelps. John had a natural eye for photography-and knowledge of recording.
I am going to try and piece together a...musical biography of sorts for 2 wonderful people that have changed Tanya's and my life over the lat couple of decades.
Ten Day Wish is a band that started playing gigs between 1991 & '92. Known until EXIT STAGE LEFT until New Year's Eve 1998--when we flipped our banner over at midnight.
Sandy White (that's me) and drummer Tom Faulkner had played together in a country band--Second Wind--in the late 80's. I met Tanya in '87 at one of those gigs in Great Bend. We married in '89 and I moved to Wichita to take over the production director/mid-day host gig at KICT-95 on January 2nd of '90. The job offer came so soon after our wedding, Tanya & I decided to stay away from live music; she had joined Tom & I singing with Second Wind.
Two years later, Tom asked us if we wanted to jam with him & a couple more players at his office. So once again, we were in a band made of musicians from different cities.
Today...Tom has left and re-joined; I can't play guitar anymore--but Kelley is now my fingers. I still sing and mix sound and all the tech stuff. Tanya continues to be the Patron Saint of Small Animals and the Grand Vocal Priestess of the High Plains...and stuff.
Steve Tankersley and Tom went to school together; Tank has been with us for over a decade.
But our newest member, Reggie Littleton-on bass-joins Tanya, Sandy, Tank, Tom, & Kelly for a brand-new, energized Ten Day Wish.
Big stuff is happening. You should watch.
See you at a show.
