We've had a great time this week in Gadsden...I've just figured out I can't hang with the big dogs....therefore, we didn't make Albert's show last night! Not enough sleep in the past 3 nights & no nap time...

But Lefty put on two great shows @ the Tavern on Wednesday & Friday nights....it was so much fun Friday night watching the interaction between Lefty, Jimmy Henderson, Jeremy Wilde, Wayne Wimpee, & Barry McNair...of course "Lefty's trio" turned into something more after Wayne & Barry showed up....FUN NIGHT!

Saturday afternoon Lefty & Frankie Marbut jammed from 3 to 7 @ 29 Dreams in Leeds and again the energy was great....a guy, Mark Crenshaw, played with them for the last 2 or 3 sets....good thing Mark played b4 Lefty & Frankie, cause Lefty forgot his mic & had to borrow Mark's...too funny! Guess that tells how tired we were...

Can't wait to see everybody @ Red Rocks!

It was pretty cool Friday going back and forth across Broad Street between Lefty's gig, and Highly Kind. Bill Thames was in town, shared some of his tales about the "early days"
in Daytona.

Albert's gig (Highly Kind) was off the charts. Most folks I've seen at 2nd Street since the Jam for Duane. Hard to get to the bathroom, people packed in. Had dinner with Brent and Mona, and Brent's daughter Jordan, in from Pensacola, then on to the gig. We were joined by a gentleman named Mark, hired by Rockin Camel as PR guy. From Memphis originally, with Phil at Capricorn in both Macon and Nashville. Last name Penny, Finney, something like that, couldn't hear.

Bill Thames came over to me about halfway through, said, "I'm witnessing the rebirth of Southern Rock right before my eyes." Strong words....hope my brother knows something

Albert was joined by a young guitar phenom, Josh Gooch, from San Diego. A blues prodigy, Johnny S. asked Albert to work with him in an improv band concept. Lefty worked with him a little, and he's getting there. Did some great improv solos, got a ways to go before he fits in with a whole band concept like Brent and Lefty, but hey--he's only 17!

The night was about making DVDs for use on TV and Youtube, in conjunction with the new Highly Kind album, to be released soon. The new PR guy is all over it.
There was great coverage of the gig, and some of what's happening in the local music scene, in the local newspaper Friday. Over a full page, with pictures. Nice mention of the Jam for Duane in discussing Duane Trucks re his brother coming here in the past in conjunction with the Jam. Also helped the big turnout, probably. The "real" mayor of Gadsden was even there.

Cameron Herring was there, having a blast with everybody else. I had fun again watching the locals trying to comprehend it all. There is a sense of bewilderment, for lack of a better word.....They know something is going on, but it's hard to comprehend. We've been a backwoods for so long. Now, you go out, there's all this incredible music, people from Nashville, Daytona wandering around, guitar players coming in from San Diego, Lefty in from Chicago, hanging out with Derek Trucks' brother, Jimmy Herring's daughter. Around town. Very, very cool stuff. Also brings out more of the people who really appreciate quality, fun music. It's a nice ride, hope it keeps growing, going forward.

I've seen the seeds sewn of a potential hot music scene in Gadsden. With Brent as the artiste in residence and the new addition of Lefty, things can only progress to.........who knows?
Thinking about a place to retire; a place with songs in the air. Another prospect arose a few years back and it's looker nicer and nicer. Hoping all y'all having a good time.

That would have been my old friend Mark Pucci [pronounced: POO chee]. Next time you see him say hello from me! Mark did the PR for Phil in Macon, Nashville and Atlanta. He's a great guy.

Elizabeth, we'd love to have you. The move South seems to have worked well for Linnie, now Lefty....we'll sure help you find your way around.

That's him, Ron....he sat down at our table, I began telling him who Duane was, other stuff about the band. He was very gracious, let me run my mouth till conclusion, then began to explain who he was and his role. Good man, good addition. Looking forward to more chats.

Gadsden does seem to be carving a nice niche as far as music goes...It's a real nice place, too, with various beautiful whereabouts. But I am still chilled to this day from memories of the day I almost met my maker at Noccalula Falls.

My fiance (I had proposed to her the very night before) and I drove up there for the day to celebrate. We were hiking around down river from the falls and were having a great time, until it was time to leave. We made it back up to the rim of the gorge, when I went back down to get a lighter and coozie I had left behind. I stumbled and fell about 10 feet. Landed right on my head. When I came to I looked about A FOOT to my right and there was a cluster of sharpened sticks where they had cut some bush along one of the trails.

Almost an instant shish kabob..........Yikes!

When I got back to the top she was like, "what happened?"
"nothin"
"how come your head is bleeding?"

Yes they are... I'm a transplant, as is Lefty. I found out that when you embrace the south just a little bit, it hugs you back twice as hard...

Sure feels like Home now.

Man, the Highly Kind show sat. night was smokin'! Mr. Gooch is gonna be a HOT picker when he gets some more experience, he's already awesome. Got to meet Duane and Cammie, awsome people, we just had a blast. Good to see something this great going on just right down the road from me. Hopefully soon my band will get a little of the action over there!

Josh seems like a good kid...of course, I was only able to see him play once when Lefty and I went to the Blackstone for Lefty to jam with Albert & Josh....Josh seemed to have a ball jamming with Lefty & Albert that night...Josh just seemed to be soaking it all in....We wish him the best! , very
