Invading North Carolina,,,,,,,,

Postby grady » Tue Nov 29, 2005 7:09 pm

Last Saturday night,,,I did my first show in NC with Kevin Hemphill & the NightBirds.

I opened up by doing a 75 Minute Solo set and then the NightBirds took the stage.
I did about 10 songs with them and then they proceeded to tear the House down with their own brand of Texolina Blues.

Some pics,,,

Where in NC, Grady? My sister-in-law is in Pinehurst and a friend is in Durham. They were the ones we visited on the trip where we missed connecting with you. Oh, and my niece is in Roanoke, VA, the last I heard. I should send her to one of your gigs there.

Hey Grady, what time does your first set start at the Red Lion? I live about 30-40 minutes away and would like to see a fellow BRB cat play. Their Mon. night blues jam is one of the best in this area. Its a fairly small place but the crowds there LOVE THE BLUES! If I dont get to say hello - have a good gig. Roy BB

Hey Grady!

That's very cool, man! Great pics.

Was it really an invasion, or was it a subversion? Either way...watch out for insurgents.

You know, "music sooths the savage breast". Play 'em into submission. :)
