LABOR DAY WEEKEND PARTY IN NORCAL!
« on: August 12, 2017, 01:26:08 PM »
I wanted to invite everyone in the club to our third annual Labor Day Weekend Party.    Come and enjoy the views from the top of the East Bay Hills.  Great food and drink and live music including our own Harry (Hieronymous) and his band, and the Lomas Cantadas All Stars featuring our own Wolf (Sonicus) and yours truly.   Anyone who wants to come and hasn't yet received an email evite should contact me and I'll see you get an evite and necessary info.  The party is also a fundraiser for CalNORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws).  Donations are voluntary and there will be an auction.

Bill, tgo

Quick question from the old country. When's labor day?

Labor Day is the first Monday in September.  This year it is Sept. 4.  Our party is on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, hence this year it is on the 3rd.  (That gives me Saturday to set up, and Monday to clean up!). This is not to be confused with Star Wars Day, which is May the 4th (as in "May the 4th be with you").  For a rather twisted view of the significance of Labor Day, I recommend the film "Serial Mom" starring Kathleen Turner.

Bill, tgo

Bill,

I quietly support the cause and will also be there in spirit just like Edwin.
Have a great day everyone. I love Bill's place the views are breathtaking!

The Labor Day Party was great fun! Fortunately it cooled off from the 100+ degrees of the previous two days! Plus Bill had set up a misting station. Anyway, a big thanks to Bill for hosting and allowing my band Stanley Lighthead to perform - it was only the fourth time we performed live, and the weekend was the first time in four years that we played together. The drummer Patrick is hoping to move back from Salt Lake City at some point, hope he can because we really enjoy playing together.

I'll share this pic because it shows how I've been holding my Stanley Clarke Signature Squared bass - I had it lower for a while and am tempted to try it again. The other shows part of the set-up - it was so nice to just show up with instruments and play using a powerful backline!
