Tag Archive: Chicago Sandy
Today we did some research on what’s going on in the area. John found some places with happy hour and live music in downtown Mesa. So we headed there and walked along Main St. We stopped at Desert Eagle Brewing Co. The Hoodoo Casters started setting up. They are a blues band and tonight they are a trio. We met Boyd which is a vocalist and harp player. I got invited up to play a couple songs, so we did Folsom Prison Blues and Sweet Home Chicago. We had some DE beers and appetizers, listened to some great blues music and Chicago Sandy got to perform.
We all took a time-out day and headed to the pool. Did some reading and relaxing.
Later, we regrouped and headed to The Cove Bar and Grill for open mic. Niko was the host. It was a different format for me, but it worked out fine and Chicago Sandy got to play a few songs. While we were there some big storms came in and they subsided for the drive home and then they broke loose again. We were lucky and didn’t get any hail, just lots of thunder, lighting and torrential rain.
More organizing, some reading and relaxing. Tonight we headed to Looe Key for Jam night. Our group is getting smaller. This is Chicago Sandy’s last night until the fall.
