Hey McG !
We got the "Gutbucketeer" Jim Bunch playing washtub bass. Jim is a recent "enlistee" to the BRB. There's photo's of Jim and my son Wil out front of my house knock'n together the washtub bass he used at the show.

We have "Tommi O" Tom Hartwell, CBG builder and player. Photo's of Tommi playing his own 3 string design AND his 9 foot bass CBG "Yeti" that uses 9 cigar box's in it's design.

That's "Rhythm Board Ray" Ray Nutter who plays washboard, drums, spoons, water jug, tube drums, aluminum beer bottles and any other damn thing he gets his hands on. More often than not ya gotta just stop play'n just to watch him work.

Gerry "Shoot'm in the Head" Thompson, builder, songster and resident jokester. If you get to Barrington, N.J., check out the Barrington Coffee House and you'll probably see him. Gerry has wonderful songs like "Steamgrate Holiday", "Body in the Bed", Dog Hair in my Coffee", "Shoot Her in the Head" and many more endearing tunes that will stick with you after hearing them.

Bobby Whitekettle backed Gerry up at the show with some REAL NICE blues lead. Bobby used my Epi/CBG electric "Paul" for the evening and got plenty of applause for his participation.

And then there's the knucklehead with the "Porkpie" hat and sunglasses. I DID get the audience goin with about 6 rounds of "Plastic Jesus".

My daughter Anna (Babe) did the announcing and was the main organizer.

It was a very cool evening. The town was taken by surprise and we all had a great time.
