Monday afternoon… 1555… Couple’s Weekend At The Fur Peace Ranch is over and I’m already starting to have separation anxieties. All weekends here are special, but to have all the ladies on board for a weekend adds a special dimension.
Teaching this weekend we had my old friend and band mate Pete Sears. Pete was here to give a bass workshop which he did in spades. He’s a good one for sure. He also came to play with Moonalice, but we’ll get to that in a minute.
Barry Mitterhoff was the masterful conductor of the Mandolin Orchestra class and Dave Revels (Shadows Of The 60’s) lent his spirit and his magic to the men and women in his vocal class… and, hey… I was there too!

Jerry S. seen here with me on the porch swing by the Workshop is one of my oldest friends here in Southeast Ohio. As some might know, my nickname used to be ‘Jerry,’ so there you are.
Roger McNamee, John Molo and Barry Sless make up the Moonalice gang. Moonalice’s music knocked out the folks here in Southeast Ohio… and it was a total production… light show… the works! Well… before they took the stage, Barry and I played a set and here is our set list:

Well… that’s it for another great weekend of fellowship and music. As Roy Rogers would have said:
‘May the good Lord take a liking to you!’
