Our next appearance - I like the poster so much here it is! It's kind of a Hippie Time Traveller Flower Power Exploding Planet Style. Clando is hosting this one, it's going to be a green technologies festival and we'll be the musical entertainment. I want one of these posters!
Clando asked me to play at the President's Day weekend BBQ they were hosting. In case you don't know, Clando Brownlee Jr. is the President of Southern California's first all African-American managed Lion's Club. They try to do as many public events as possible, and he usually asks us to play at them.
It's time to haul out the guitar and play some tunes!
This is my 1974 Washburn, it plays great!
Clando gets the BIG smoker running -
What a PRO! . . .
George Pallinard, who put together the whole event -
And Joseph Nedan who originally chartered the Brotherhood Lion's Club, he's a 35 year navy man and a paramedic -
The surf shop I work at, Mitch's Surf Shop, is donating some cash to Fresh Start Surgical Gifts (thanks!) so we said YES to playing a rock concert for their big weekend sale, even though I should be working inside folding shirts and helping customers...
You're right, at the bottom of the sign, that's a hot dog bun chasing a hot dog that wants to go surfing.
The La Jolla gang!
The Solana Beach gang, looking for UFOs?
Time to play - with the photogenic Curly Max.
Max on lead guitar . . .
And Alfonso on drums . . .
Even James Bond showed up!
This was our biggest fan all day - this little guy LOVES TO ROCK!
