Saturday afternoon was a lot of fun, playing out on the porch by the water.  It doesn't get much better. Later it rained like hell! Sunday turned out to be a nice gig, the weather held. It got a little hot though. Later it rained like hell! I missed Jake's set on Friday. I think he was down in the Keys.

What a wonderful couple weeks. I was feeling a little under the weather the whole time but seem to be on the mend. It was nice to be home for a while to get some things done around the house.

April 9th, NorthStar at Creekside - A wash out, the weather was terrible. This day will not let go. It was a bummer not to play with Laurence, Brady and Ed (Frankie would have been there but we scaled down to play in the bar area). It was nice to hang out and tell some old war stories.

April 14th, The Eagles and Jimmy Buffet - Great concert. Tickets to much, Good company (Theresa, Jack and Julie), Millers Landing is a good place to eat. The traffic and construction sucks around the venue. Water $5, Beer $10 and mixed drinks $25. Caroline Jones sounded great as an opener. Jimmy Buffet put on a great show. I love Mac McAnaly. Eagles were great, voices amazing. Deacon Frey sang good and played good. Vince Gill is the man. I wish they had of used him more on guitar. Joe Walsh is still crazy and good. Timmy Schmit was great. (I over him since I saw Poco in the 70's. Don Henley has still got it. I didn't know who was on 2nd drums and keyboards, both sounded great! The horns and strings were great! Steuart Smith stoled the show as far as I'm concerned, not just because he's from Virginia and I know him, over all a great experience and one I will not do again if I can help it. Maybe McCartney

April 15th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - Terrible weather, I set up inside. Pretty slow and uneventful. See you on May 4th, 5th and 6th. Sunday will be starting a little late maybe 5pm. I will be playing the Gamble Rogers Festival about 2pm.
