Those of y'all who remember me know I'm a musician. My last band folded back in October, and I've been enjoying musical retirement more than I'd imagined I would. After 10-15 years of steady weekend gigging and rehearsals when there wasn't a gig, having weekends off is really cool.

A couple months ago, a friend asked me (not knowing I know longer had a band) if I could play a benefit gig for K9s For Warriors outdoors at the local American Legion hall. The original plan was four or five bands throughout the day (10am-10pm). I told her that although I couldn't contribute as a band, I'd be happy to provide the PA system for the day, so it would be be easier on the bands changing over, provide music and have a way to make announcements before and in between the entertainment, etc. It was hard find enough bands, so the event got shortened to 12-9pm. My son and I went through the gear last night, made sure everything still works, and are about to load up and head out (the hall is 5 minutes away from the house). And, yes, I'm taking cigars, a couple cobs, and some tobacco...

Happy Saturday!

Very nice! Things like this make it so much easier to organize events like this, and hopefully encourage people to do it more often. I was at Boots on the Ground last weekend and had a blast. Hope you do the same.

My end of things went well. I'd still be there, but the last band, unbeknownst to me, was a keyboard-based band and preferred to use their own gear. So I kept my PA running break music while they set up, then packed up my gear and called it a day. 10am to 6pm outdoors is a long enough day for me.
