Quaker Steak and Lube / Sandtrap Jam / Earl and Nina’s Bday

1st time at Quaker Steak and Lube this Saturday. Big place, but not a lot room for the band. We had to tighten up and put the lights and a speaker across the room to fit, but we made it. It was good turnout and a lot of fun. Thanks to all who stopped out. Kaj and Chuck from the Ruffcutz band were out, probably trying to see how we fit in the place! The sound was good; we had a lot of dancers, and I hope this will be a regular place for us.

No gig Sunday but Cyndi and I played the Sandtrap jam and had a good time. A better crowd than usual and a few more jammers. Matt stopped towards the end of the night with Stacy, and played the last set. A Packer’s win and a Bear’s loss also made for a good day.

I have a dinner music gig here in Milwaukee with bass player Marshall Holm this Thursday which should be fun. Still have some practicing to do!

Rainbow Bridge will be at Hammys this Friday from 7 – 11. Our Saturday, which was at the old Finns (can’t think of the new name) cancelled so we’ll have to pour a weekend’s worth of fun into one night. Earl Young’s birthday is Tuesday and Nina Spenle’s birthday is Friday. They were planning on celebrating on Saturday but we’ll see how Friday works out.
We’d like to send a big happy Bday out to both Nina and Earl and say thanks for supporting the band all these years.

On a personal side note, Holly is going through physical therapy for back pain and will have another pain-blocker shot on Wednesday. She’s been missing work and not doing very well. Hopefully these treatments will give her some relief.

Stop out to Hammy’s this Friday and wish Earl and Nina a good one when you see them. See you there!
