Happy Labor Day! Last Tuesday’s Cleveland Music Club Jam was a marathon session, but for good reason! There was just too much musical goodness to fit into our allotted time. An amazing night without question. Huge thank you to hosts Becky Boyd, Mike Dixon and Tim Hamman. This week’s players kept the quality and energy going the rest of the night. Thank you David Koler, Bob Laeng, Angelo Ciu, Doug, Nate Mysza, Michael Bay, Lenny Grey, Tom King, Greg Kern, Benny, Don Lydon, Jeff, Jmy T., Robert A. DeVries, “Idle Frets” (Tim, Lou, Joe) and Ron ‘Papa J’ Jackson! To everyone who came out to enjoy the music and/or just say some hellos, including: Kelly, Vern, John, Brianna, Tim, Tom, Jennifer, Ray, the Dancing Marilyns and the rest of the ‘Frog Faithful.’ Thanks for sharing the night with us. As always, thank you to Dirty Town Guitar and Amps and to the staff and management of Bullfrog’s Sports Cafe for your continued support.
On Friday night, Shady Drive traveled to Marblehead where we made our debut appearance at Erie Social Shuffleboard Club & Bar. What a great night!! The place was jammin’ right up until our last tune. The drinks were great and it’s a huge room with all sorts of fun things to do! Thanks to Erie Social’s staff and ownership for making us feel welcome! We had fun!
Saturday found Rob and I back at Gandalf’s Pub in Valley City for our monthly Slim N’ Shady gig. We had a great time as always! It was great to see Suz, Guy, Rhonda, Mike, Erika, Chris, Daryl, Amy, Ron and Pete and his gang! Thank you to Sean and Michelle for their continued hospitality at Gandalf’s!
