Greetings from the hot, dry Rockies,

Pam and I just returned from having heard Mr. Hammond and Mr. Musselwhite
play at a small, local, outdoor venue here.  The sets were excellent.
John played his usual acoustic gig and was pleased that he was getting a
very positive response from the crowd.  He only broke two guitar strings.
Charlie started out slowly with a bass, drummer, and excellent guitarist.
His set quickly kicked in and was relaxed and excellent.  The crowd was in
his pocket and he came through.  Pam, who usually has an ear problem with
electric bands found this one to be very comfortable.  At one point she
actually asked me to dance with her.  Of course I did; any excuse to get
close to that lady!  We took another couple, a prof at CU and his wife.
They weren't too experienced with the blues, but they both loved the show.
So, you've got a nice treat coming your way.
