Birthday / Jazz Gig / Hammys w/Shawna

Well the big 6-0 is here – first member of the band in the next generation. No gig on birthday Friday so Holly and I went out that night to our favorite pizza place. I had lunch with my coworkers earlier so it was a good day for food!

I played a real jazz gig at a private residence on Saturday that was a lot of fun – challenging, but fun. There were four other players and I met three of them at the gig! It was a night of reading charts and jazz soloing which brought back all my conservatory training.

My step-son, Chris, gave me 4 scratch offs on Friday and 3 of them were winners! I had been looking at a guitar amp and took the winnings as a sign that it was meant to be. I picked it up Saturday afternoon and used it both that night and Sunday.

Cyndi played a duo with Craig Curtis (from Nashville) at Off the Hook so I was not the only one moonlighting this weekend.

Matt is still not feeling well so Shawna Moore Schultz played with us at Hammys on Sunday afternoon. It was advertised as Rainbow Bridge but it looked like the Gary McAdams Band with Bob! We played as many RB songs as possible and had a great afternoon. Thanks to all that stopped out and for the birthday wishes too!

We’re off again this weekend, although the Gary McAdams Band is playing Sunday afternoon at Boundaries from 3 – 7.
I’ll be co-hosting the Lucky Chance jam in West Allis next Monday night.

Again, thanks for all the birthday wishes and we hope Matt is back next time.
