Thanks everybody who took part in the Fountain of Blues Show and the abbreviated Bob and The Buzztones, last night at The Bitter End. Yeah that was such a quick tossed-off set by at the end that when I got up for work this morning I was wondering why I'd stuck around but it was good to see Keith play and fun to see you play with those guys. And I liked that your keyboard was scrabbling around on its shelf when you were pounding on it. -J.Mo. It was my pleasure Ira. I thought you played a GREAT set! We had most of the band there last night, except for Jamie who couldn't make it. Did you speak to Joe at all? I didn't see him after his set with Eight Men Out.
Looking forward to more summer fun! Have a GREAT weekend! -JG
Great show! Thanks for inviting me along.
Reviews were generally fantastic, and a special thanks to Ira for the extra glue.
It looks like we are not getting back to rehearsals until after Labor Day.
When we do get together, it's agreed that all will be ready to play:
Lover To Cry - (FOB#2, last song)
Good Woman Gone Bad (FOB#4)
If anyone has chord progressions, or other details worked out,
please send out to whole group.

I'm back from the beach, and even the beach was 'no day at the beach'... and this just in - INSTALLING HUSBAND: Dear Tech Support,Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed adistinct slow down in overall system performance - particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0, NBA 3.0, and Golf Clubs 4.1. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, butto no avail. What can I do? Signed, Desperate DearDesperate: First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an Operating System. Please enter the command:"http: I Thought You Loved Me.html" and try to download Tears 6.2 and don't forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5. But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or Beer 6.1. Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-law 1.0 (it runs a virus inthe background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources).Also, do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0. In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Food 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7. Good Luck, Tech Support

Just back from FL-- left Mark down there! M. Bree Riddle is a very neat place. All went well. Mark called last night and said he needed to know some "southern bubba jokes". His roomate is from central Florida and likes country music. I guess they're giving him a hard time for being a "Yankee"! He also said that they did a conga line back to their dorm after their activities last night. He's already been up flying!
