From Dana D. Alameda, CA


Hi, folk, thanks to the folk who came out last Friday night to hear Andre Thierry, and to celebrate his Birthday..Lots of people I hadn't seen in a long time and a lot of new people who came out.And Andre did not disappoint..we started at 8:32, and went on till 11:20, straight thru..Nobody was unhappy and every body was happy!! Andre will be back for our 23rd Anniversary Party, which is in the 19th of Aug..

 

There might be more I'm still working on them..when the are confirmed I'll let you know..

 

This Friday, July 13, Curley Taylor comes back to play..He and his guys always put on a good show and he will this time as well..We're going to have an earlier start time, 8:30, which is what a lot of people seem to like..Last week many people were surprised that we were already going when they showed up!! We'll do it again this week, then go back to Sundays for while..

 

The Pine Leaf Boys will be here next Sunday, speaking of which, and will start at 5:30 and go right till 8:30 sharp..

 

 

NOT A BAD LINEUP AT ALL...In my humble opinion..So spread the news about what we do..and we'll be able to keep it rolling on..See you Friday, with a new start time of 8:30..
