I'll post all of Jake and Sophia's songs next, but here's our jazz-funk-surf acoustic set first. This warmed us up and drove the audience CRAZY!

Notice Fonzo on drums - and Megan playing like crazy to rip out a FANTASTIC bass line, which ain't easy on Curly Max's giant standup that SHE HADN'T EVEN USED BEFORE!!!!

Megan's favorite song, I think she's one of those Beatniks...


Jason Lee said I played this cleaner than him, which is pretty good cause I did this whole set on my trusty but rusty $75 Mexican Strat...

THE RAFFLE!!! I bought tickets and won some sandals and t-shirts!

Megan won the hat she wanted!!!

Micah is manning the Raffle Booth for Fresh Start Surgical Gifts - we made a LOT for them!

Word is that Micah is a 1970's version of an exact duplicate of Ashton Kutcher - what do you think? I think we should ask Ashton Kutcher to run our Raffle Booth next year so Micah can help out customers inside, nobody would notice; he looks just like Micah anyway -

Mitch's Surf Shop was busy all day -
