To start it off, I had a gig last night with a bunch of old friends. The Shades Band used to do a lot of 1AM to 5AM gigs at an after hours place called The Main Event back around 95-96. We did classic and "southern" rock and always went over well. It all ended when my good friend of over 20 years and band mate, Dennis, moved back out to Denver, CO. He came back to town for the weekend and we had a reunion gig at Back Yard Tavern. We had invited a few friends to come out and sit in. What ended up happening could have been a disaster, but considering it was a throw together gig without the benefit of rehearsal, it went pretty well. We had not 2, not 3, but 4 guitarists on stage. What made it OK was all four guitarists are pretty doggone good. I would have preferred just two, but all the dudes are my friends, and we didn't want to be exclusionary. Besides, it was about having fun, and fun we had. I'm hoping some of my friends in the crowd will share some pictures with me, and when they do, I'll post them.

The other good thing happening this weekend is underway now. My youngest daughter, Rachel, graduated from high school today!! Also, we are hosting a displaced teenager, Rachel's best friend, Jade, and she graduated today, also. We are at the house having a big old cookout and party for her. My paw-in-law is up from FL and I am cooking pork and beef on the grill. I am full of love right now. Thought I'd share some with ya.

L to R: Jade, my wife, Maureen, Rachel, Moi, Laura

that sounds like a ton of fun...A couple of my old bandmates from 69 -75 back in FL and I have been talking about trying to have a reunion but nothing seems to happen...

I'm glad you got to do it!

Congrats to your daughter.

Congrats there Dave....I'll join you in that experience on the 4th. Phoebe graduates from here in Kettering that day. On to the airport before the rooster crows the next morning for some sort of 'gathering' down in--as Muddy Waters sang--"FLAWIDA".

Got a few pics from last weekend's Shades gig. Dennis e-mailed these to me and said he had a blast and hopes to do it again real soon. Who knows, maybe we'll do this bi-monthly or quarterly. I'm IN! I love playing with these guys and they're awesome people and dear friends.

Spiderman (guitar,) Dennis (guitar,) Danny (drums,) Dave (Bass -DUH!) Not pictured - Patrick (keys)


Friends and brothers for over 22 years - Dave and Dennis


Dennis and special guest, Joe. These two grew up and learned to play guitar together


I'm expecting some more pics from another person. I'll post them later.
