Fiddler on the Spoof: Hubie Needs a Violin
Fri., Mar. 23. 2007 3:31pm EDT
ApologetiX keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Bill "Wild Thing" Hubauer has a problem. Maybe you can help.
We get frequent requests to play our songs "The Devil Went Down to Jordan" and "Save Your Voice (Quiet Down, Boy)," but both of them require a violin. Oh, Bill knows how to play the violin, and he knows how to play the songs; that's not the problem. The problem is his electric violin was irreparably damaged after a concert last fall.
Bill's not looking to replace it with another electric violin. He'd like to just get a nice acoustic violin, which he will fit with the proper pick-ups to play live. Unfortunately, that's an expense he can't afford right now.
If you or anybody you know has a full-size, acoustic violin in decent shape that you'd like to donate to the cause (or sell cheaply), please contact Bill at:
Please put the word "violin" somewhere in the subject line of your email. Thanks!
