The first concert of the year was in Bend, Oregon with Alabama Shakes. If you’re going to do a concert summer, there is no better way to go than starting with Grammy winning Alabama Shakes. Robert had signed up for the newsletter from Bend Concerts when he bought tickets to Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. […]
Eric Burdon Autographed Sky Pilot Back Cover In the early ’70’s, Eric Burdon and War came to the Rogue Valley. At the time Robert was the afternoon disc jockey for KBOY-AM radio (730 on the dial back then) and had the pleasure of interviewing them. Now, forty years later and now back with the Animals, […]
Ben Harper We left home for Bend and drove our usual route: 62 to 238 to 97 and finally to 20 and Tumalo State Park campground. It was the usual, uneventful trip. Except for two morons (and that’s the nicest we can say) in their big-honkin’ SUV’s decided to pass four or five vehicles (of […]
Jackson Browne We took a different way to Bend by going over Highway 66 and connecting to 97. Highway 66 is a funky highway in that it is cut into the hillside and the state is forever shoring up the road. Lots of sunken grades and roads that look like waves, except, when you stop […]
Gipsy Kings Un-Bloody Believable! Picture this: a lively, animated, enthusiastic band playing exciting music of Spanish origin, looking out over an audience sitting on their asses. Adding insult to injury, one woman FELL ASLEEP! And, considering the band encouraged people to clap, stand, and dance on FOUR OCCASIONS, it is a tribute to their love […]
Tuesday, June 6th: Weather forecast for the concert is snow/rain showers with the high only 53 and lows in the low 30’s. We will monitor the situation with the understanding that this is spring time in Oregon and you only have to wait a few minutes and the forecast and weather will have changed. And […]
Telluride Festival Milford Campground Left around 0945 heading for Laufman Campground near Milford, CA (20 miles south of Susanville). We had seen the signs on several occasion as we head north or south on Hwy 395. We took I-5 to the McCloud exit, then down to Susanville. The drive is a pleasant drive through some […]
Tedeschi Trucks Band We’re learning that Tedeschi Trucks Band ALWAYS puts on a great show. From the moment they take the stage to the final note, it’s rock and roll at it’s best. But the show in Albuquerque FAR surpasses anything we’ve seen and we’ve seen a bunch. THIS show was the most innovative show […]
Tom Petty and The Lumineers The only album we own with Tom Petty is Traveling Wilburys, so he wasn’t really our reason for going to Seattle. That would be The Lumineers. We had purchased tickets for said concert and lodging in downtown Seattle way back in February sometime. Our intention was to take a couple […]
Gipsy Kings – September 8 We saw the Gipsy Kings at Britt and enjoyed the music and interaction with the band. This time Robert’s good friend from his Air Force days will be meeting us for four days of fun and frolic in Reno!
