We've got two gigs this weekend. Friday Night, May 3rd, We'll be returning to the Carrillo Ballroom in beautiful downtown Santa Barbara for their Friday night dances. It's been 5 years since we've been at the Rec Center on a Friday night, and we're stoked to be back.
Saturday Night, May 4th, we'll be filling for our friend Glenn Crytzer at the SLO Lindy Exchange. As some of you may know, Glenn was injured pretty badly in a car wreck in South Dakota a couple weeks back, resulting in a badly broken arm, surgery, and lengthy hospital stay. He's gonna be ok, but he's gonna missing a lot of work, and he's got huge stack of medical bills. Calico Goodrich and Solomon Douglas (who were also in the crash, but ok) have set up a website to coordinate efforts for Glenn - www.getwellglenn.info. Since Glenn would be unable to make the trip out to SLO, he asked me to fill in. Besides a crew of our Campus Five regulars (Albert Alva, Paul Lines, Bryan Shaw and Art Gibson), we'll have Swing Session/Stompy Jones original piano-player, Scott Lawrence on keys. Also, we'll be taking up a collection for Glenn, so if you got some spare cash, drop some in the bucket for Glenn.
