Well we had a smashing wee hoot for ourselves this Sunday for a few hours, with brave Banjoest holding forth on the five-string, Mike on the mandolin, Darrell playing and singing guitar...I mean playing guitar and singing, and Mark showing up to play fine fiddle to boot. Good time was had by all and the crowd was very happy!

Next session (since it is now after Labor Day) will include Nicole Castle of all people!! Won't that be a right treat!!!

Thanks for a wonderful day, guys!!!

So are you reprobates still meeting to jam? I met a worthy soul at another board. He's reputed to be in your area.

That would be Russ, of the Kahuna Cowboys Jugband. I've heard a coiple of songs. How can you go wrong, with stuff like this?

  • Kahuna Cowboy

  • Hula Girl

  • Hesitation Blues

  • Whistle Up Your Troubles

  • Hey Good Lookin'

  • Separation Blues
  • I Love My Ford...


  • ... and my personal favorite (there's a clip in their site):
  • Eat That Mule


  • I think you'll have a great time if you invite him-- say hi for me; he'll be lookin' for you.

    If the music has died, or even gone into a coma, then the Kahuna Cowboys should get 'er done and wake yo' sorry asses up.

    "Spending time with the Kahuna Cowboys was once described as basking in the sun on a tropical isle, listening to the gentle rhythms of Hawaiian steel guitars and having Gene Autry gallop by, chasing a herd of Texas longhorns."

    Trust me, you can NOT go wrong, even if my HTML sucks.

    Of course, you bein' out of town when I was there in June didn't help, and Hugh bein' tied up with his nephew's graduation did didn't either. ;-D   Bear and Greg and I hadda hold down the Balboa fort all by ourse'fs!

    Ennyhoo, my latest email from Hugh says we all is jammin' on Sept. 11th (whilst Rummy & the gang will be using taxpayer $ to promote a pep rally in Washington DC once again trying to use the memory of 9-11-01 to build support for a war that had nothing to do with Al Quaeda but I digress).

    Sept. 11, of course, is on Sunday this year. Sept. 14th. is a Wednesday.

    So I do hope y'all can make it on the 11th, since that's the only Sunday I'll be in SD till the end of October. (As I told Hugh, I can't get there on the 11th till about 1:30, but I can stay all afternoon, so if anyone else wants to jam from 1 to 4 instead of 12 to 3, I'm up for that!)

    I hope we can get a good sized group up for the Sept!

    Well, roadies are allowed, but not really needed much, Kaleea. Sure, they're helpful as caddies, but Balboa Park doesn't allow them newfangled electric bodhrans an' the like, so ya won't need anyone to wind no cords and tote no amps. §;-D

    Genie, I'm sure Mike and his new bride stayed at one of the fine San Diego "No-Tell Motels" and enjoyed the park by day.

    Louie Roy, I have a friend who was in the USMC during WWII. He was in Japan on 12/07/41 and was held there till the end of the war. When he got back home he was hospitalized in the Museum Of Natural History in Balboa Park. When he regained his health he ate a boat load of hamburgers and was given the nick-name of "Wimpy." He became the chef at the "Cotton Patch" on Rosecrans St. San Diego and worked there for years untill it closed. At this time he's alive and well. You being there in 1945 I thought you might get a little kick out of that story.
