Anchor Inn / GMB at Hammy’s / Lakeview and Cyndi’s Bday

Nice Friday night at the Anchor. We put the lights behind us and tipped them up which really made a difference with the bug issue. Thanks again to Mark Schultz for running sound. Afterward, Gary, Bob, Mark, Dawn, and I hopped across the river to the old Finns (don’t know the new name) to watch Wildheart’s last set. It was fun to hear another band. Seems they were having bug issues too. We stayed and chatted a bit while they were packing up.

The Gary McAdams Band played at Hammys on Saturday night. Keyboardist, John Cammilleri turned down the gig at first, but then worked it out to be there. Gary had already hired guitarist Larry Walford to replace John and technically Cyndi, so we had a big group. Saturday was Cyndi’s birthday and she wanted the night off. Shawna Schultz was on bass, and Pat Betts was on drums. It was a little loud, but the playing was incredible. I felt like the weak link! All said, it was a good time and fun to play with such talented people.

Still celebrating Cyndi’s birthday, we finished the weekend at Lakeview campground. The weather was nice and we had a good crowd. I felt a little relieved being back in my comfort zone after Saturday! Cary Farmer was out and played the last set with us. All said, it was a great weekend.

I’m hosting jams on Tuesday and Friday here in Milwaukee. I’m a little worried, and hoping both go okay. The band has a wedding in Madison on Saturday. I’ll be back at the Sandtrap jam in Edgerton on Sunday from 3 – 7. This will be a busy week for me!

Gary and Cyndi will be at the old Café Belwah in Beloit on Friday. Don’t know much about that – check with Gary or Cyndi.

The Texaco Country Showdown in Walworth is coming up fast and we’re working on getting the music together. We’ve all got some practicing to do. I’ll post more about it when I know what’s going on. According to the schedule, we’re there on Sept. 1st from 4 – 7:30. Watch for the updates on Facebook and our website, for more details. And, wish a good Bday to Cyndi next time you’re out.
