This weekend I reached a milestone of 60 shows since April, and by the end of this month I'll hit 70 gigs!! I admit, I'm a bit tired and sore; but, I keep on ROCKIN'!!!
It was beautiful weather for the drive to Richland and Yakima and of course my air-conditioner went out of my van!! So I had to roll old school style with the windows down. Oh well, it was a nice drive.
Friday night in Richland WA. was sweaty and hot but it felt great to return to Rattlesnake Brewing Co. I really feel I'm making a new home there. I recognized a few of the regular crowd and they stayed for my entire 3hr set. Singing along when they knew the words. I'll be back in August.!!
Then Saturday night as I rolled into Yakima I could tell it was going to be a great night because the streets were PACKED with people walking around and hanging out. Turns out that was the night all the hotrod cars cruise the main drag, so yeah, I was right.. it WAS A GREAT NIGHT!!! I just LOVE the staff at Kana Winery, they make it easy for everyone to have fun. I know I did.
Sunday, not normally a day for gigs but Leavenworth WA does NOT follow the rules!! I started the day off with a nice drive over Blewitt Pass. On the way I found a Forest Service road and a few miles of gravel later I found a spot to pull over and hang out by Liberty River. I had some time to kill so I made myself (another) ham sandwich then took a nap.
Leavenworth was bustling with tourists walking around and taking in the damn cutest little town you ever did see!!! It was my first time at Stein and I'm glad I was early because I had to park a block away. Now really, the best way to describe the crowd at Stein is to click this link and watch the video. https://fb.watch/enZCa-5h6B/
