   Summer is rolling by so quickly -- seems I say that every year -- but it's true. Some updates on the summer schedule -- let's get started .............
   The heavy rainfall this season has made the patio schedule a challenge.  However we have been pretty lucky so far. We haven't been drenched and scattering to save gear yet (knock on wood). Let's hope our luck continues.  

    The only glitch in our plans came on June 22nd. This was the benefit for slain Stem School student, Kendrick Costillo. A chilly rainy day kept folks away -- we got to play for just over an hour before the organizers called it. They re-scheduled the benefit for the following Sunday, and got some money raised for the cause.

   The entertainment lineup for the annual FIRST RESPONDERS RUN set for Saturday, July 13th, at DIRTY DOGS ROADHOUSE, has changed. KRFX's RICK LEWIS has been  acquired to headline the event with his band, the RICK LEWIS PROJECT, so the lineup is now DAVE FRISK GROUP from 1-3:30pm, RICK LEWIS PROJECT 4-6pm, and then  JUNKYARD DOGS will take the stage, rounding out the lineup, and playing into the night.  It is a great cause - an event that benefits first responders (firefighters, first on crime scenes, rescue teams, emergency disaster teams, etc.) as well as suicide prevention and awareness. I have been honored to play a small role in this cause for twenty or more  years, and proud to be called upon again this year. More info online, or
check out the flyer.

   ............. Speaking of DIRTY DOGS ROADHOUSE ..... this season has been a glorious one for the patio at DDs. I have been attempting (as the schedule and weather allows) to get an earlier start on my Thursday nights so I can finish earlier, so as to not annoy the neighboring community. If the weather dictates, I play inside, then it's buisiness as usual.

   Thanks to all at the LARIAT LODGE for all the courtesy and support -- this is a new venue for me, and I have been treated with warm welcomes. My 4th of July was spent playing outside in their back garden -- lovely! Can't wait to be back!  

   The GRAND STATION in Historic Downtown Littleton is getting the word out -- great food, great drinks, and wine specials -- it's nice to be part of the new lineup. Check it out!

   MISFITS in Lakewood has a new large patio (I mentioned it in the last newsletter but wanted to reiterate). I have some Sunday afternoons scheduled through the season as a solo on the patio, but don't forget the "electric band" still has dates booked there too!  The inside is a perfect setup with a roomy stage for us to rock, and a nice size dancefloor for you to. We will be back on Friday, July 19th from 8 to 12 midnight. Can't wait!

   Thanks to Joe and Joe (and everyone else too!) at the SOMEPLACE ELSE up at Pine Junction for having me perform there. I've always loved this place -- used to play there with the HEAVY MAN years ago when it was the WOODSIDE INN. The longriders out there remember when it was JIGGER JUNCTION. Can't wait to get back. Will add it to the calendar when we can find a date.  

   At this writing, I plan to return to STURGIS for the annual motorcycle rally in August. I will, again, be hosted by DIRTY DOGS, STURGIS. Don't know what my performance times will be yet but will post when I know. And thanks to my best friend Gary and his good wife Shelly for allowing me to stay with them in Deadwood for the week. Gonna have a ball!

    I've been informed that the annual WESTERN WELCOME WEEK festivities in Historic Downtown Littleton are back on. I will be on the main stage in the REINKE BROS' parking lot from 12 noon to 5pm. I will be joined by Bruce Crisman on drums and Sam Ray on bass guitar. Looking forward to it!

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