    Me and Gary P. this weekend at S. Padre and Port A

    If any of y'all are down thataways, I'll be pickin' some Texas Progressive Country with my old saddle pal Gary P. Nunn this weekend. Thursday at Harpoon's Surf Bar & Grill on S.Padre Island, and Friday at The Back Porch Bar in Port Aransas. Both places are rockin' good time joints.

    Saturday we'll be at the Redneck Country Club in Stafford TX, which is just right next to Sugar Land near Loop 8.

    I'll be the steel player, come say hey.
    Son, we live in a world with lakes, and those lakes have to be guarded by men with fishing rods.

    Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg

    Love me some Gary P

    Used to go watch him at the Spoke some years back. I'd be interested to see a gig closer to town, keep us posted!

    Would love to do a road trip and see you play.
    It is imperative to remain confident in your abilities when the bullets are flying.

    Heck, you don't have to make a road trip... I pretty much play in town every week. On Thursdays from 6-8pm I play at the Broken Spoke restaurant room with the Tony Harrison Band, and then from 9-1 with Alvin Crow at the Little Longhorn. Also on Fridays or Saturdays in the main room of the Spoke with either Tony or Alvin.

    Occasionally I work with Al Dressen's Super Swing Revue, as well. There are great musicians in all of these bands, but we don't do no rock music. We play music for grown-ups. Country, western swing, Sinatra/Darin, and 60's Texas garage rock.

    You know... the good stuff.

    I'm one of two steel players that Gary hires. The other is my buddy Danny Hawk. Then, depending on budget, sometimes he just goes out with a 4-piece band. So, Danny might already be on that gig, but I'll ask the manager or Gary if it's open.

    It was a good tour, the weather was absolutely perfect. 'Course, I couldn't fish because I was on the job, but there were a bunch of boats out that I could see from whatever vantage points I had. Both at S. Padre and at Port A. The crowds were rockin', and I think there might have even been more alcohol consumed than what I understand is the normal amount at the Wendzday niter.

    Gary and I have been playing music together, off and on, for 42 years.

    Madre de dios, that's a long time!
