Last week vacation, this weekend began early after doing Tues. laundry, other chores and errands, more errands on Weds. and a drive to Dixon and my rockin’ friends Todd Anthony Joos and The Revelators.
Got about 3 hours of sleep, breakfast at 3am, hopped in their van and 5 hour drive and couple hour load-in, setup, soundcheck and a rocking and super-well-received set from myself, a tune with the Revs and they proceeded to tear it up more!
The men at Southwestern Correctional in E. St. Louis- and the kind warden and chaplain and officers were really cool, encouraging and helpful with it all. Really, the response was off the charts. Grace.
Just a GREAT day.
Then a supper stop and 5 hours back to Dixon where I tossed my gear in the car and drove back to Chicago.
Unloaded, got a sweet 6 hours sleep and then up to finish packing, breakfast w. my sweet Wendi and I now type this waiting for a flight to Dallas-Ft. Worth, then an hour drive to Decatur and some hangout time, doing sets Sat. and again Sun., solo and jamming with friends at a large Biker Bash.
———–Ok, I’m now finishing this weekend write-up while sitting at DFW (Texas) airport at the gate for my flight to Chicago.
BIG Thanks to all- and longtime as well as some new friends who played sweet blues with me -who know the music and feel it. SO nice.
Here are just a few pics from the weekend. It was hot, but a nice breeze, places with ac on the grounds, a cooling light water spray tent right near the outdoor stage, the food great -and superb hospitality. And just a few cool bikes 🙂
So errands and appointments this week, then on to Dassel, Minnesota with Wendi for a cigarbox guitar workshop and GK Solo concert this upcoming weekend (details here at glennkaiser.com in last Appearance update).
Hope so see some of you on the road 🙂
As always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
