Greetings again from my depressed summer is almost over but excited football time is near little corner of the world. Mercy kids, where had the time gone? Where has the summer gone. It seems like we were just hearing up for graduation parties and planning ask the “cool” stuff we were going to do this summer. Well, I don’t know about you, but I ended up doing about 10% of anything I had planned, had a few unexpected thrills but for the most part it was a decent summer. However, from what I have heard, look out, the fall its gonna be hot.
Drug myself out of my death bed (well maybe that’s a little exaggerated), Saturday to check out the unplugged set at GILBERT’S Music of FUTURE RUIN. It was sort of a gift to their fans and for all those who weren’t legal age to attend the”Official” reunion show at Harrys Hideaway. To be honest, they hadn’t missed a beat. Actually in my opinion it was the best they have sounded. I am a firm believer that if you can pull off a performance stripped down to the basics, you are a musician. It was fun to see most of the group, Nathan had a prior commitment and couldn’t make it, but he made the Harrys show, which was more than I can say…Don’t stay away so long next time.
I mentioned this a few weeks back and I just wanted to remind you again, coming up October 5 @ The Lima Eagles, the Young Professionals along with the Browns Backers of Lima have a chicken bbq planned to raise funds for Toys For Tots. I don’t have a price for the dinners or too many other details but I just wanted you to mark it on your calendar, so you can plan ahead.

I was not aware of this when I started writing this weeks offering, but bass player extraordinaire for FUTURE RUIN, Roger, took ill near the end of big show and required medical attention and has the areas best medical personal taking care of him and we wish him nothing but the best and hoping for a speedy recovery. Roger and family send a big thank you for all the concern and it is much appreciated. GET WELL ROGER…we’ll miss ya… Btw I bet if you dropped off a get well note at GILBERT’S Music, that would make him smile….just a thought..
That’s it for now. We can all support the local scene, just go to something somewhere. At least that’s what I think.
