The benefit concert was awesome. Five bands, from Grateful Ted, who sat with his guitar and sang some great tunes, to Resonator, who played some nice slow-cooked-with-extra-sauce blues, to funky honky-tonk blues of Kenny Lee and the Sundowners, and Majik and their unique arena rock experience. Wait, that's only four. Brittany Woods (bless her heart) got a different job and had the misfortune of the 7th being her first day on that job. I agree, not the best idea to try to weasel out of the first day of a new job. But it's ok, you'll hear more about Brittany as I go about the task of producing her album (probably on a different blog, though).
But the concert was a success. I will be able to cover my bills this month. I want to thank Jai for helping organize it, John and Dana Gibson and Majik (Jai's band) for instigating it and making it run smoothly, Sherry Pittam for working the auction table, and all the donors for helping out. There were (by my estimation) about 40-50 people at any given time for six hours. It was fun for me and it appeared to be fun for almost everyone that was there. (I did meet with a few friends who simply aren't aesthetically in line with loud blues rock.) I do have some more of the t-shirts available. Go ahead a send me a note through the contact link and we'll work out shipping. Mostly the shirts are either white or tan, with a few yellow ones. Sizes available tend to be the smaller sizes, but check with me and I'll let you know.
I started back at work on Monday, half time and light duty. I'm exhausted, so I don't know how much I can really do just yet. I also don't know how much I'm just spoiled at the FMLA leave 'workday'. I do know that I'm tired and need to pull back again. :\
Here's some random bonus music I found while looking for another tune of the same name:
