50 Shades of Cheese

TONIGHT WE PUT the pedal to the metal and really start the summer right with a Cheeseburger gig at the "Smokin' Good Times" BBQ contest at the Knights of Columbus, 36th and State. It's warm but dry, there are supposed to be a million people out there and it's free and open to the public. There's a lot of stuff going on in the Q-Town this weekend, but if you want to start things off right, come on over and git Cheesey with us.

This is part of our "50 Shades of Cheese" tour. We are playing tonight with former Cheeseburger guitarist John Hodge, who was with us a few weeks ago at the United Way volleyball fundraiser and hasn't skipped a beat. I love playing with John and I'm hoping he brings a stogie or two or three.

John and former Cheeseburger bass player Jeff VanKanegan are playing Saturday night at the Adams County Fairgrounds with Zeke Cernea, opening for country music legend Tracy Lawrence. Zeke is finishing up his new CD project and got John, Jeff and Classics drummer Kevin Vandament to play on it - in other words, four of the best musicians in Quincy. Can't wait to hear it!
