The skies were blue, the sun was bright and the crowd was plentiful.
As far as entertainment, we opened up, then there were two student acts and then the real band, Southern Comfort took the stage. They played a job in Ulmer, SC last night and didn’t arrive back in Aiken until almost 6am! (They were setting up today at 11am).
We came, we played and then Rich and I had to leave to get back to our respective jobs. Jim, a teacher at the school, was kept very busy I am sure, being the go-to guy for just about anything.
Thanks to Doug at Eclecticity for taking a few photos of us when we were playing.
He did not realize it at the time, but he was mentioned in one of the top rated business blogs in the world..Nicholas Bate..from across the big pond!
I would like to take a moment to acknowledge Ron and AJ at Berkshire Guitars in Augusta, GA for the work they did on this 1977, Gibson Les Paul Custom that I am playing in the picture below. The neck was a mess, as was the wineberry finnish. Two weeks at the “guitar spa” and it was playing and looking better than it had in a very long time.
For that, I am very grateful.
