Yes, I was invited to play at a HotRod meeting, my stage was the running board of a 1931 Ford Model-A, haha!!!
A small but very cool place to play ol'timey blues... 8)

With a happy grin on my face, I sure had a good time!

How about the idea of having a full side of an old Ford along as a back-drop, haha!!!??
Hmm, not to easy to fold it and bring in a bag.... :roll:

Anyway, just wanted to share the rather unusual moment with y'all.. :D


More pics and video clips from the event soon..

Very cool!

Over here we call that step a "running board."

The only way that could be any cooler is if it had the bullet holes from when the cops shot Bonnie and Clyde.
Cheers, TB.

It got about as many holes shot in it as the car with the groom and best man in it at that recent New York wedding party.

If the car's too big to carry from one gig to the next, how about getting a "bouncy castle" replica? :mrgreen:

Or a banner printed up and have a bench in place of the running board?

A friend of mine owns a printing company and they can pruduce huge banners and such, I'll talk to him about it.. :D
