Re: Holiday april may 2013

Glenn, I have never just been able to put on My Musicians Hat and keep it on,without Day job and other distractions, My Plan is to Try and get as many Spots at several Music fests along the way To give me some sort of a itinerary,Paid or not just for the exposure and experience, Then fill in those dates with visits and impromptu,stops and jams along the way,trying to follow the roads laid out in the list above,

Let me tell ya, these little backwoods juks is all most people have for entertainment other that church on sundays, But they have a dress down!! I went to one outside Bassfield Mississippi, a Pole Barn type structure,compacted dirt floor, stage made from shipping pallets, tables of wood spools used for cable,2 pool tables, Card Board walls,and egg crate ceilings, with a red light bulb,Everclear and Boones farm wine,available at the bar!When the players arrive, they are dressed in Red suits big hats blue shoes,women are dressed down with the big hair and bigger hats, man ya get excited, when they walk in, Start drinkin and get down with juke music,1 drum and a tambourine, and have a great time !!

Wow! This thread is amazing!! It's gonna take me awhile to read it all, especially because I'm recovering from a freaky attack of vertigo earlier which seemed to be digestion-related. Ugh. Musta been the deli sandwich I ate last eve while out shopping-- and I didn't even get ta hear any blues!! ;-)

The below conjures such wonderful, vivid imagery, I feel as if I am there. I wish Alvin WOULD join you just for a week, and I wish the rest of us could too!! It sounds like fabulous fun. BTW, if this is a photo of you, as it seems, you look very German! ;-) Rock on, Sixy!
