7 Shot Screamers Change Bassists, Return to Shows -- Tonight at Deluxe

Posted By on Tue, Apr 14, 2009 at 9:40 AM

Wondered why the 7 Shot Screamers have been a wee bit quieter lately? Wonder no more. Via MySpace:

As you may have heard our noticed, our upright bass player, the beloved Chris Powers Jr, has decided to retire from the world of 7 Shot Screamers. After 10 years of service, CPJ will now be focusing his energy into new and different projects, musical or otherwise. The good news, Chris is still willing to write songs with 7 Shot Screamers, so in a sense, he will still be around... The idea to go ahead with 7 Shot Screamers minus Chris Powers was not an easy choice... But we are blessed to have paired up with an old friend and fellow Saint Louis native, Shane Kiel ( code name: Phyto Planktin). Shane will be taking over upright bass duties with a 100% thumbs up from CPJ and the rest of the 7 Shot Screamers camp.. You may know Shane from his upright bass work with our close friends, The Two Timin' Four... We welcome Shane "Phyto" Planktin back to Saint Louis, and into the family that is 7 Shot Screamers. We will be hitting the road again with The Horrorpops in May, and doing more local shows in Saint Louis this summer and we can assure you, the new dynamic that Phyto brings to the band will blow your mind! Thanks for your support in this changing of gaurds.. And thanks to Chris Powers Jr for his 10 years of service and all the great times we had with him..

7SS will be at Deluxe tonight with the River City Rebels.
