    Day 7 - Grand Avenue Pub with Dave Potte

    July 2, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    We departed at around 10:30 to go from Des Moines to Beloit, Wisconsin. We looked for food and had to go to an Arby’s. Here we had a cashier who though Doug was spelled Dug. Oh well, no one is perfect.

    We didn’t do much stopping or anything. The one noteworthy thing that happened was that we discovered we had two rooms at the hotel, but only two beds. So Doug had to spend about an hour fixing that situation.

    The gig was really fun. Mark Thompson was there amongst other friends. Dave Potter also sounded great. A few songs in Madison Slim walked through the door. He was incredibly nice, and when he sat in I was elated by how great he sounded. I was incredibly honored to meet him and play with him. Stephen Dougherty also sat in on drums. He sounded super good and was a great conversationalist. He is probably the top blues drummer in Chicago.

    Tomorrow we play in Ohio. It’s going to be about 8 hours of driving with a time change, not only that we won’t have time to stop anywhere before the gig. So it’s literally drive and play. It’ll be a long one!

    Edit: during “I’m Ready” I believe it was Andrew and I did a big build up. Well, as I went to do the roll into the four chord I tossed my stick across the stage. I somehow hit a rim or something. Someone ran up and grabbed it and proceeded to dance with it.

    End of day one

    September 13, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    We checked into a Quality Inn. The last 30 miles was with headlights; we both agreed not to do that again!
    Since we started out later today than we had planned, we wanted to make it far enough south to be able to get through Chicago during the middle of the day.
    I mounted radial tires on '35 Ford spoked wheels for this trip. The ride is much smoother...which makes driving a long distance less tiring. I am looking forward to tomorrow's drive.
