Sugarloaf Key, FL – 15Jun19 – KW Day and Piff the Magic Dragon

Happy 21st B’Day to our little girl, Magic!! We took our lake walk and now we had a party for Magic. She got some presents and now is napping.
We got ready for our KW day. Tonight we are seeing Piff the Dragon from AGT (Americas Got Talent) at KW Theaters. We picked up Sally and started at Lucy’s Surfer Bar. Now on to Smokin Tuna for some music. It’s time to go see Piff. We had great seats, table #24. It was so fun to see Piff and Mr. Piffels. It was a good show and we got to meet Piff and Mr. Piffels afterwards.
Were not done yet. Chicago Sandy got to play at a new venue. The mansion across from The Bull. Also did some busking on Duval with a guitarist. On the way to the truck, we stopped at the Parrot. There was an awesome guitarist. Another awesome fun KW day.

Sugarloaf Key, FL – 12Jun19 – Uku Jam at Coconuts

After a few projects, we did something different. We headed to Big Pine to Coconuts Bar for a Ukulele Jam hosted by Bobby Howard. Quite a few people we knew from Looe Key and the area was there. Bobby on Uku and vocals and Maxxie Howard (Bobby’s wife), Karen and Andy, Steve Miller on Bass, UK Allan on drums and others we didn’t know. Trombone Chris was there but not playing. It was very helpful and fun for me. We definitely want to go again.

Sugarloaf Key, FL – 11Jun19 – Jam Night at Looe Key Tiki

We did our bike ride this morning. John – 12 miles and I did 6.75 miles. Tonight is Looe Key jam night. – Mickey and Judy Foster and Dellis sat with us. Chicago Sandy got to jam with Popeye, Moose and others. I also sang Mary Jane’s Last Dance. Tonight is sad though, next week is the last week for the great artists in the Jam Band. Tony Napoli, Marc Davis, Doug Allen and Glenn Fasst. There are others that fill in but this is the core. I have played with Tony and Marc for 9 years. It was a great night tonight and look forward to next week. Marc’s been out ill for a few weeks, but coming back next week for the last night.

Sugarloaf Key, FL – 07Jun19 – Key West Day

We did our lake walk and John needed a bike ride. So off he went to Blimp road about 8 miles. We took a time-out afternoon and then headed to Key West.
We kidnapped Sally and first stopped at Capt Tony’s. Our buddy, Bo Fodor is playing. So we hung out for an hour or so and enjoyed his music. He did invite Chicago Sandy up to play “Movin of Over”.
Now on to Turtle Krawls for Billy and the Squid and the Sea Cow Drifters. We had a great table in the shade with a nice breeze on the rooftop overlooking the harbor. These guys are always fun. Billy is a harp player and invited Chicago Sandy up for one. It was so fun. Thanks guys. Jerry’s son (2 1/2 years old) wanted to sing, dance and play ukulele with the band. So he grabbed a mic and he sang rock and roll.
Almost sunset, so we headed to Sunset Pier. Zack Seemiller and Fritz were playing as the sun was setting. Now it’s time to head home. On our walk to the truck, Brad Shudduck was playing at Rick’s so we listened to one and then Caffeine Carl and George Chapman was at the Tuna, so we stayed for one song. Another fun, fun, fun day in Key West.
