A few days in Oregon
Road Trip MG Style
6,500 miles of music, coffee, truck stops, set up, tear down, hang the lights, run the cables, print the set lists, hotels, chicken for lunch, chicken for dinner, long hot days, rain, wind, thunder, too loud, not loud enough, rivers, valleys, streams, mountains….you name it.
Best of all-each day ends with the sweet sound of music. Thank God for the precious gift he’s given
us to share.
June 9, Detroit
A rather hot day here in Detroit. Doing a gig adjacent to Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers, and one of baseballs true legends, Ty Cobb. Met up with Matt Heasley, who used to sell our merchandise in the Ricochet days, 1998. He’s playing keys and touring. Always awesome to meet up with old friends. Cheers!
June 7th, Fan Fest River Stages Show
Well, Fan Fest has come to a close for us..it’s 9pm Thurs nite, and I’m standing in a curb in Brentwood, TN waiting for the tour bus, headed to Rockton, IL then to Detroit, MI. Had a great time jamming this morning, however-no matter how you slice it, most of the red solo cups onstage were filled with coffee…) Cheers!
June 6, Fan Club Party
Big Night at the Surf Ballroom!
MG played a show at the legendary Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA on 2-25-12. Buddy Holly played his last show at the Surf before the terrible plane crash that took the lives of himself, Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper and the pilot in Feb 1959. I was able to visit the memorial out in the farmers field, still adorned with loving tributes from fans, 53 yrs later.
