Hey good friends! I hope this finds you all well and happy!

Wow. What happened to the summer? For that matter what happened to the YEAR?
It flew by WAY too fast. I have some newsworthy items as of late,
so let's get started ..........

    We lost, yet, another hero and friend in true last month -- our dearest "Boogie" Bob Olson passed from this earth Thursday, Sept. 14th, 2017.  There are no words to describe the grief, the heartbreak, or the void left behind -- so many friends ..... so many memories ..... he was so loved and  cherished by all. I have known few in my life who have touched so many so deeply. He was most gracious, patient and kindhearted. He was a true  inspiration -- probably the finest all around musician I have ever had the  pleasure of knowing. To know him was a blessing from God to me -- to call  him my friend was one of the finest treasures in my life. I am SO not worthy....  I cannot say enough about him .... to say "he will be missed" is the  understatement of the century. Rest in peace "Boogie". "God bless ya son!" ....... And thank you for everything.

   ----------- There will be service to celebrate the life of "Boogie" Bob Olson on Friday, October 6th, 2017 at 1:00 pm at Augustana Lutheran Church -- 5000 E. Alameda Ave. Denver, Colo. 80224. The funeral will be followed by a ceremony in the Memorial Garden. There he will be laid to rest. There is more information online. 

Here’s a link to an article on Bob, published a few years ago.  And if you want to know more about his life, or his 57 years in the music  industry (and I highly recommend it) google his name. He's had an incredible run. You will not be disappointed. 

    Halloween Season is upon us!!! The Reinke Bros. Haunted Mansion is still going through an extensive re-construction/ rennovation, and although the Haunted Mansion itself will not be up and running until next Halloween, the shop is open and in full swing. With new products always coming in -- the  latest costume fashions, make up, magic tricks, lighting effects, and ever popular anamatronics -- well they have literally everything to make your nightmares come true! Come in and see all the new changes -- the amazing art work of our own "Michelangelo" (Steve) has transformed the shop into something extrordinary to behold -- inside and out. Check 'em out! The Reinke  Bros. -- "It's not just a store, it's an adventure"!

    The schedule has been switched around for Saturday,  Oct. 7th. The Shack for the night has been cancelled. Instead I will be performing solo at the SIT N BULL from 3 to 7 pm (unless it snows), then off to the NORTH SIDE TAVERN to  perform with the electric band from 8:30 to 11:30 pm. (Gotta hurry up!!) I will be  joined on stage by Bruce Crisman on drums, and Sam Ray on bass. We're gonna have some FUN!!! Hope y'all can make it! Thanks to Steve and all at the NST for letting us play the band! As we find venues open to our rock n roll, we will  be doing it more, I promise!

     Thanks to our good buddy Chris Elder for inviting me to play for the grape harvest at the Shattuck Winery in Caballo, New Mexico over Labor Day weekend. It was my first time there, and the people were absolutely wonderful! Great vibes, great food, and (of course) owner Brad's award winning wines! I hope I get to do it again! I look forward to it! Thanks again.

     Well, as the season winds down at Wrigley's in Golden Colo. the concert series is almost at an end. The weather was not my friend the last few weeks -- I got cancelled twice due to rain & wind. I do, however, have one more scheduled date -- Thursday, Oct. 12th from 4 to 8 pm. Weather permitting of course.  Thanks to Skip and Paula for all the support every year .... and I gotta say thanks  to Tommy too! She always brings the joy to my heart. God bless ya love!

    Well, that's all I have for the moment.

       As always, thank you for your continued support --- you are the best!
