Thanks to everyone for coming out to the world-famous LITTLE BEAR†† Colorado for the POINT BLANKSTER'S
performance on June 25th.It was such an honor to play with these great
musicians, and the audience was just unbelievable. We have been asked back to
do it again on
October 15th November 12th. 4-8pm. It's gonna be great!
†† I am honored to have been asked to
perform for the "Reception on the River" sponsored by the GREENWAY
FOUNDATION on Thursday, August 4th, from 5:00-7:30pm. The event will take
place at the pavillion located at 14th and Zuni
Street. This event benefits the foundation which has been run by my very dear
and longtime friend Jeff Shoemaker. There will be guest speakers, food, and
beverages. Gonna be fun!
†† Thanks to the good folks at WHEELZ
for all the support and good times! We always have a blast playing there.
Thanks to John Akal for filling in on drums on July 1st for Bruce Crisman who was booked elsewhere that night, and for our
backup man, Chris Crisman, who suffered a heart
attack the week prior. (Chris is doing GREAT by the way but is recuperating.
Prayers are always welcome.) John did a remarkable job and helped us out
greatly!† And, because I feel that I
don't say it enough, big thanks to Sam Ray on bass. You make my job easy.
†† While we're on the subject, one of
our dates scheduled at WHEELZ will be October 29th. We're gonna
have a HALLOWEEN PARTY!!!! We'll be made up and hope you will be too! I'm
working on details for prizes and such, so don't know what you'll win, but
....... hey, Halloween is COOL!!!
†† Thanks to Jerry and Candi for
hosting their Summer Party and inviting us to perform. I am disappointed that
the weather didn't cooperate (I'm still drying out gear and tarps!), and sad
that our time was cut short -- we only got to give you 2 hours before the
torrents came. Maybe we can try again before the season is over.
†† Thanks to everyone at DIRTY DOGS
ROADHOUSE for all the support over the years. The best venue in Colorado just
keeps getting better, and we are pleased to be a part of the lineup. And MANY
thanks to soundman Eric Danner for always making us sound better than we
deserve! He's a master! Great food, great friends, great times ..... it doesn't get better.
†† I will be joining the Heavy Man for
the annual WOODSTOCK PARTY held at MAD JACK'S MOUNTAIN MAN BREWERY in Bailey
Colorado on Saturday, August 27th from 2-5pm. We will be joined by Steve Dronzek on bass, Big Al Sandson
drums Deb Bredsen on vocals and other instruments,
and will be playing music selections from the era. Come on out and have fun!
††† DIRTY DOGS in Sturgis has new
owners now, so my annual pilgrimage this year has been cancelled. I am hoping
to at least make it to Deadwood to celebrate the anniversary of my very best
friend, Gary Addington, and his bride, Shelly. My God, has it been 20 years
already???!!! Time surely is gaining speed.
