March 29 - Children's Hospital Benefit at the Greene Turtle

There were a number of bands playing last Sunday night at the Greene Turtle in Germantown. The event was a charity fundraiser for Children's Hospital. We timed our arrival in order to see The Lost Highway because the Boy's drum teacher (Paul Goldstein) is their drummer. They were quite good playing a mix of rocking blues. The crowd was mostly old folks (i.e. my age) but the Bird enjoyed seeing many of her former students who were employees there. Special surprise was when Flatfoot Sam joined the band onstage for a tune.  All in a great time, once again local music needs to be supported (especially when it's for a good cause).  

We're off to our annual Spring Break in Jamaica, perhaps we'll catch some music down there, either DJ's, toasters or like last year a car stereo competition on the beach. Mainly we'll be resting up for the Dead tour which starts a few hours after our plane touches down on our return in North Carolina. I hope to be providing frequent updates on the tour, so keep watching this space.
