What a great night! We had Lou and Diane Hager stop in from California. I played with Lou in The North Star Band in Virginia in the late 70's. It was a real surprise to see him and his wife walk up. We hope to go see them at the end of February. Also Alex Richman stopped by she is a great singer-songwriter I have had the pleasure to share the stage with. Also Rick and Ann showed up. We played "I Want To Stay Here" for Ann. Rick is one of the finest guitar players I have met. Overall it was a great night!
