In Elko again

On my way down to Elko on Tuesday, I stopped in St. Anthony and picked up Colt Angell and he rode down here with me. We got to Elko about 2:30PM local time yesterday.

I went to the Nevada Dinner House and met with Heather, set up my sound stuff and then went wandering around the downtown a little. Colt and I ran into Toni McGuire and Sam Mattise at the Western Folklife Center and Colt hung out with them while I got myself together and started playingat the Nevada House at about 6PM.

Had a good time there and that should be a really good gig for this weekend.

Couldn't find a pool game anywhere so I finally just gave up on that idea for the night.

Headed for Elko again

Howdy all:

As usual, I've fallen behind in keeping up the blog. But...Iiiiii'm Baack!

Cute, huh?

Anyway, my very good friend, Billy Rose, will again be running an open mic stage at the Duncan Little Creek Galleries in Elko, Nevada during the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering: a venue I like to call the "Elko Rejects Gathering". I hadn't planned to do the Elko trip this year but Billy changed my mind for me by setting me up with a good gig at the Nevada Dinner House.

I'll be playing there Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the 28,29 and 30 of January, about 5PM to 9PM. If you are going to be in Elko then, please stop in and say howdy while you have a nice dinner. From what I understand this is one of the better eateries in Elko so come on by. It's at 351 Silver Street and the phone number is: 775-738-8485.

I was planning to leave here a day or two early and visit with Wayne Nelson on my way but I'm waiting for a part for a computer (still have to fix computers once in a while. Wish the Music would take over!!) and I'll probably do my usual; leave at the last minute.

Hope to see some of you in Elko this year.
