Hi gang!

It’s been a while since we’ve written. Mike is back behind the kit now and doing much better. There’s a lot to catch up on so let’s get started!

We appeared at Cleats – Strongsville on Friday in front of a very enthusiastic crowd that included Laura, Gary, Merle, Sandy, Ken, Mary, Rick, Jackie and Bill! We had a blast! Sadly that was our last gig there as they are remodeling and discontinuing music at that venue.

On Saturday we returned to 42 Eighty and another great crowd. Together we rocked the house all night long! Thanks to the entire 42 Eighty gang for coming out to party with us. It was a fun night as always!

Sunday found us at the Galleria Courtyard at Erieview Plaza. We had a great time partying with the crowd before the Browns victory over the Steelers! Look for us there before every Browns home game.

Coming up this week…

We were scheduled to appear at The Bier Haus this Friday, October 17. Unfortunately, the restaurant has closed and our gig is cancelled. We wish all the best to Bob, Michelle and their staff and thank them for having us as a regular part of their live entertainment over the past two years!

That’s it for this week! We’ll talk soon…

Hi gang!

Last week was a blur, but I think I remember Shady Drive joining up with Chris Hanna and the fabulous North Coast Horns to appear at Twilight at the Zoo for the 6th year running. As always it was an amazing night! We noticed John, Erika, Chris, Daryl, Carolyn, Gary, Mary, Cayla, Dan, Dawn, Pat, Nicole, Pam, Mary and Bob in that crowd of 7,000! Hats off to Beth Gladen for a great job on the sound board and to Jess and Andy for manning the merch table. On a sad note, this was Kevin Fancher’s last gig with Shady Drive, as he’s off to the Big Apple and new adventures.

Saturday night found us back at 42 Eighty for our monthly appearance there. It was great to see George, Jess, Andy, Timmy and the 42 Eighty gang. Kudos to Adam Constantine for a stellar performance on bass and to Ann and Misty for keeping everyone’s glasses full!

Coming up this week…

This Friday, we’ll cruise into our debut performance at Time Warp Bar (26261 Center Ridge Rd., Westlake, 9pm – 1am). We’ll have Tim Hamman with us on bass and vocals and it’ll be time to party, so c’mon out and help us show Time Warp what a Shady Drive show is all about!

This Saturday with Adam Constantine on bass we’ll join up with keyboard wizard Bob Gerhard to appear at Greenbriar Commons in Parma Heights from 6-8pm!

But wait..THERE’S MORE!

Saxman Mark Rasnick will join us at 9pm and together we’ll back up Blues Brothers Tribute – The Soul Men until 11pm! It promises to be a fun rockin’ night, so mark the date on your calendar now!

Then on Sunday, Rob, Mike, Adam Constantine (bass), Bob Gerhard (keys) and Mark Rasnick (sax) will join up again to back up Blues Brothers Tribute – The Soul Men from 7-9pm at Richfield Home Days! C’mon out!

Whew! That’s all for this week! We’ll talk soon…
