Hammys (GMB) / Countryview (RB)

GMB at Hammys on Friday with the “standard lineup”. Drummer, Steve Dougherty, has been touring / vacationing for a while and it was nice to have him back. It was a good crowd and good night. Curtis “Chainsaw” again recorded the show so we’ll see show that turns out. The odd thing was breaking a string in the last set. The last time I remember doing that was in my teens and before Rainbow Bridge! I’ve been using a different brand of strings that are designed to last longer, and they do. But it seems they’ll break before they sound bad! I brought 2 guitars so I just grabbed the other one. Dawn Richter was celebrating a birthday, so she and Bob stopped out.

Rainbow Bridge was back at the Countryview on Saturday. Bob has recently purchased a larger PA system and tried out a “portion” of it Saturday night. He moved from drum sets to PA equipment! Bob has been looking for a van to haul the new PA and some of his Craigslist stories of outdated pictures, spray paint and duct tape were quite entertaining. Although, it sounded a lot like the cars I’ve driven!
We had a great crowd with a lot of dancers and thanks to all who stopped out. Lucas Brookins sat-in on drums for a few.

Sunday was, of course, Mother’s Day and dad’s 83 birthday. The band was off so after talking to dad and visiting mom’s site, I headed back to spend the day with Holly.

Busy weekend coming up starting with Friday at the Moose Club.
On Saturday, we’re playing at the Watering Hole for Doug Brookin’s birthday party. Cyndi (solo) and Doug’s friends from Nashville, Stone Silo, are also playing.
Stone Silo is playing Friday at the Willowdale and I see the plan is to head out there after the Moose Club.
Rainbow Bridge will be at Hammys on Sunday from 3 – 7.

I’d also like to say congrats to son, Corey Arnold, who’s graduating welding school and already has a good job waiting.
So proud and happy for him.

Stop out this weekend and say hello!
