Blues and rock gig - Jaywalkers Jamboree

On Friday and Saturday, Myra and I played at the Jaywalkers Jamboree here in Camrose. On Friday, we played with a full band, with Dean playing the 2nd guitar. We did some blues tunes (Sweet Home Chicago, etc) and some rock songs (Midnight Special). It was fun. Brandon the man on drums and steady Al on bass. We never rehearsed - we just went up and played. It sounded alright for not being prepared.

The local tv station filmed it (channel 10) and they will be showing it now and ten on that local channel. I'll have to keep an eye out and see if we pop up on there some day. Maybe I could even record a little of it and post on this here website.

I played my SX Strat copy, with the nice maple neck I traded with Tremoloman. It's really nice. It doesn't stay in tune so well though, I need to set the crappy bridge to not float or else it goes out of tune way too much.

On the Saturday, we played as a duo on a different stage. It was a huge stage with just us two - Myra singing and playing acoustic guitar and myself on the Fender strat this time and background vocals. It was fun as always, and a big thanks goes out to the Jane Cherry-Lemire at the Arts Centre in Camrose, for their support of the local musicians. It is great to have such a great organization pushing for local talents (and non-talents like myself :)....) and we will probably be back again next year.
