What a great time we all had at The Grand River Hotel this week! I even got a new Joe Firth T-Shirt (pictured here), and I wasn't even supposed to be there until July 18-19! Why not?
Well, my friend and colleague Paul Nathan was originally booked at The Grand this week, but had an opportunity to go to Mexico instead. I happened to be open this week, so we "switched gigs" (you can see Paul Nathan at The Grand River this July 18-19). I'm sure Paul enjoyed his trip, and I got to enjoy playing his gig! LOL. Thanks Paul!
Steve Petrie - guitar
Jeff Greig - bass
Dan Pasquale - drums
We had very special guest Krystal Dawn take my place for a few songs on Friday night, and being a friend of the band she hung out with us and danced her butt off! Not only does this girl have killer vocals, but she is a genuinely nice person. Jeff Grieg has been working on a studo project with her, so keep your eyes and ears on this up and coming talent! She rocks!
Also joining us on Saturday was friend and fellow jammer Kevin Sommerville, who joined us on stage for our third set filing in on the drumkit. Kevin plays a great groove and it was a blast having him in the rhythm section!
And finally, thanks to the management and staff of The Grand River Hotel. Marilyn, Kristy, Bev, the place would not be the same without you!
Next gig: The Stampede Ranch, Guelph (July 10-12)
