More KHQA love, and another insane weekend
RAJAH MAPLES DID a great job on her KHQA story about our building. It airs Monday, Aug. 11, at 6 p.m. Here is the YouTube clip.
The local media has been very kind to us and we appreciate the interest in our beautiful Fifth and Maine building, home of Second String Music. We have a donation jar on the counter for the "Elevator Restoration Fund". Any ideas on how to raise the money for this huge project are appreciated.
Having yet to recover from last weekend, we get ready for another wild ride. Tonight I'm hosting open mic at One Restaurant, Tim Smith and I are playing Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Washington Park as part of Blues In The District Friday, and the sidewalk opens early Friday afternoon for Blues In the District.
Then comes Saturday's Cheeseburger show at the Party Cove on Mark Twain Lake near Monroe City. We are taking the Eleven party bus, and captain Dale Steinkamp has promised us a wild time before we even get to the gig! Call the store if you want to join us on the bus. $7 donation for the ride but well worth it to party with The Cheeseburgers on the way to the gig.
To top it off, Sheryl and I are going to try our best to see our buddy Rockin' Jake at the Club Tavern on Sunday night .... if we are still conscious.
So come out and support your local musicians and have a great weekend.
