College Park, MD

Mike and Liz knows a trop rocker, John Luskey that plays in the area. Tonight he is at Happy Harbor in Deal MD by the Chesapeake Bay. We went to Mike and Liz’s and they drove since they know the area. We met John (Moose) and Sharon, and Diane there. Moose plays guitar and sings so when John took breaks, Moose played. Chicago Sandy was invited up as a guest harp player on a few songs with Moose. Micheal was up singing with both John and Moose for quite a few songs. We met a couple, Dave and Nancy that spend their February down at the KOA on Sugarloaf. We had good food and drinks and a fun evening right on the water with good friends.

College Park, MD

Relaxing afternoon by the pool. Now it’s time to party at the Old Bowie Tavern. They have a Blues Jam and we met Candy and her friend Marc there. Mike and Liz live really close by so they met us there too. This was a really good blues jam. Carl and Charles are the hosts. Chicago Sandy got to jam with Kevin on lead guitar and vocals, Jeff on drums, Cookie on bass, Jeff on rhythm guitar and Carl on keyboards. Mike got up and sang harmony on a couple songs and then had a set of his own. Chicago Sandy joined Micheal on stage for one song. There were lots of artists. It reminded us of Looe Key Tiki Bar.

Jupiter – Jonathon Edwards St Park

Today we headed to Hobe Sound Natl Wildlife Refuge. After going through the nature center we took a 1 mile hike on the scrub trail. It winds around and then down to the intercoastal. John needs more hiking. So I dropped him at the tracks and he hiked 5 miles back to our campsite on the old Dixie Hwy trail.

Now we regrouped and later headed to the Double Roads Tavern. They have an acoustic open mic tonight hosted by Joe Birch. It’s amazing what a small world and musician world it is. We met Pete (Bullfrog) another harp player that comes here often. After talking a couple minutes, he knows a couple of our harp friends. Stan (Sloppy) from Key West and Buzz from Antioch Il. So jammers were arriving and one walked in and I knew I knew him from somewhere. It was (Larry) Reverend Hambone that played at Keystock in 2012 when it was at Lazy Lakes, also in 2015 at Keystock Truman Waterfront and in April 2016 at a CW Colt house party.

Chicago Sandy got to play with the host Joe Birch and also sat in with another jammer playing Mary Jane’s Last Dance. There were also musicians jammin outside as well. We’ll have to return to this jam if we are ever in the area on a Monday night.

Sugarloaf – 28Apr17

We had our coffee, paper, lake walk and did a few projects. Now we headed to Key West for some shopping, and an oil change for Ruby. Now it’s fun time. Our first stop was Irish Kevins and Irish Kevin was playing. Kevin’s is always fun. Next we headed across the street to Rick’s to see Yo Adrian. Adrian is always fun. Now we went to the Green Parrot. Jason Ricci and his band is doing sound check. Jason is a well known and great harmonica player. I have done quite of few of his online youtube harmonica lessons. So we enjoyed the music and saw Bob Paul and his wife Ellen there. We are ready for dinner and went to Roositca on Stock Island for a nice Italian dinner. Another rough day in the Keys.
