Default More tales (and photos!) from the road...

I got a call Saturday morning about a gig that evening. The band's lead singer was down, and the band leader asked if I was available to front the band on guitar and vocals. It was all the standard cover band stuff...classic rock, motown, country, etc. I was available, it paid well, so I signed on.

It was a 60th birthday party for a lady (organized by her husband) out in Clifton, VA. He had a huge garage that he emptied out and set up a bar, casino style gambling, catering, etc. It turns out that the husband plays music too, he had a stage/equipment already set in up in the garage, and he and his friends opened up for us. It was a cool gig! Some photos below...

It was a dream garage! 2000 square feet. He had six classic cars (similar to the Chevy in that one photo) that he keeps in there...plus an actual stage with sound equipment hard wired, multiple flat screen TVs, the projection TV, all sorts of vintage garage signs, gas station signs, beer signs, couches, refrigerators, etc.
