Job For A Cowboy Bassist To Step Down From Immediate Touring, The Red Chord Guitarist To Fill-In


Job For A Cowboy bassist Nick Schendzielos will be missing at least the first few weeks of the bands upcoming run on this years “Summer Slaughter Tour“. He will be temporarily stepping down from his duties with the band in order to tend to his girlfriend—who was recently involved in a vehicular accident.

Mike “Gunface” McKenzie of The Red Chord has been tapped to fill in while Schendzielos commented:

“Hey friends: On June 28, immediately after landing in Boston to rehearse for Puerto Rico/Summer Slaughter, my girlfriend was in a head-on collision on her scooter. She sustained very serious head and bodily injuries. I flew right home, and we’ve been in the ICU for a week and are still in the hospital to make sure everything is okay.

She needs 24/7 supervision for at least two weeks once we get out of here, so I’m very grateful to announce that Gunface from The Red Chord is going to help me out filling in on Summer Slaughter until I can meet back up with it. We love the dude very much and it’s going to be really cool for both JFAC and TRC fans to see. Enormous thanks for understanding this difficult situation and I’ll be back as soon as possible!”

McKenzie spoke on the opportunity:

“I’m excited to be playing with JFAC on this tour. Great dudes in this band as well as in the bands on Summer Slaughter. Playing bass is a little different for me but definitely an interesting challenge.

I’m definitely looking forward to getting out on the road again. Nick‘s bass work is incredible and I’m working hard to get all of his parts down. Sending positive vibes out to him and his lady.”
