Really Big Shoe

Wow, it's been a year and a half since I've posted here. LOTS has happened, and I can't recap it all now, but life is good. Here's the "Really Big Shoe" stuff:
Saturday, March 7, 2009, BOTH of my bands, will be playing (along with 2 other bands) at the Old South Jamboree in Walker, LA. This venue has been around form decades, and they have traditionally done Country and Gospel shows. Our show will be all bluegrass, and if it goes well, it may turn into a regular gig.

The line up: Tuning South, Sweet Tea Bluegrass, Bayou Bluegrass (I play banjo and sing mostly backups), The Darold Dixey Band (I play banjo and sing mostly leads).

I'm pretty sure the show starts at 7 pm, but I'll be getting more details, soon.

Bluegrass and Beer


Well, Thursday night (June 28), I got to have a real one night reunion with the One Night Band. All 5 of us got together and had a blast playing at Brew Ha-Ha Coffee Shop. We even made $6 each in tips! $30 tips for 2 hours in a coffee shop isn't bad at all!

Today, I brewed my AHS Kolsch. Here's a picture of the hot break
during brewing.

My Space

I didn't want to get on My Space, but so many people wanted me to see things on their pages that you have to be a member to see, I finally gave in. I set up a page for me and Nicole. She also has a separate one she's set up, mainly for Mary Kay purposes.
Here's the url for our together page http://www.myspace.com/v_and_n
Enjoy!

Addition To Family Pics Below


A banjo friend in CA who happens to be a veterinarian pointed out that my family pics were missing one family member. So, I took this picture, and added it here and to my family portraits below. This is Coon. He's almost 3 years old, and he half Chihuahua, one quarter Beagle, and one quarter Dalmatian. We say he's a Chidalgle! Great little guy who keeps us entertained and gives us much love. Thanks for the reminder, Johnny!

Buskers Paradise, May 3, 2007

My friends Dorothy Leblanc and Mike Whitney (The Buskers) had a couple of other friends, Jim Bookter (mandolin) and Willi Sager (bass) as their guests at Brew Ha Ha on May 3rd. They called me up on stage to sing John Prine's "Paradise" with them. What a kick! I'll be their guest performer on May 17, and I'll probably end up playing banjo, guitar, and mandolin at some point. Brew Ha Ha is a great coffee shop, and playing there is a lot of fun!
