GMB @ Hammys / Countryview w/ Matt

The Gary McAdams Band started off the weekend at Hammys with the regular line-up. We had a little trouble with the mixer at the start but fortunately Gary had a spare. The bad news is that one giving us trouble was borrowed from Junior Moore. Gary and I both have the same mixer and have had trouble with both. Mine was sent back to the company it’s pushing two years now – I’m not happy. But it was a good night and good crowd. Tommy Larson and Phil Trumpy sat-in for a few. Cary Farmer was in the crowd but did not play, although he helped with the sound.

I had a Voight birthday gift certificate from Bob that I took care of on Saturday afternoon. Going to a music store is always a fun thing to do – I thanked Bob for the new strings that night.

Rainbow Bridge returned to the Countryview on Saturday and Matt was back with the band. Between off time and fill-ins, we hadn’t played a lot of our songs in a while. I did some reviewing, but have a lot more to do! We had a great crowd and a fun night. Jim, a friend of mine from the Sandtrap days, was out celebrating a 50th birthday party. Lucas Brookins, who, along with Dawn Richter helping with the PA, sat-in on drums for a few. This place seems to be doing really well with the new owners and we’re happy about that!

The Gary McAdams was scheduled to play Sunday at Boxcars but owner/drummer, Tim Pogorelski, took a last minute trip down south and didn’t make it back in time.
A little disappointing, but I headed back to West Allis after Sunday brunch at dad’s and got to spend the day at home.

Cyndi will be at “Off the Hook” on Thursday.

Rainbow Bridge has 3-day weekend starting at the Moose Club on Friday.
We’re at Lucy’s (Owl’s Club) on Saturday and then finish off the weekend at Hammys on Sunday.

I see we’re also running a “clearance sale” on our 40th anniversary t-shirts. Now’s the time to get one!
We’ll see you this weekend!
