Last night was the final show of 2014 at the Fur Peace Station and what a show it was. Our very own John Hurlbut, Ranch Manager, got together with a bunch of friends from Dayton (the Gem City) and put on a show to remember. In the late 50’s I lived in Greene County when I was going to Antioch College and many aspects of my life were formed in those years. Not only did I learn to finger pick from Ian Buchanan back then, but I bought my old 1958 Gibson J-50 for a hundred bucks at Pop’s Music store in Dayton.
Anyway, the music scene was alive and well then and it is even more vibrant today. Here is a list of the personnel of the Gem City rockers who comprised The Spin last night:
1. Rich Reuter, lead guitar and vocals
2. Khrys Blank, vocals and tambourine
3. Erich Reith, percussion
4. Bryan (Hazy) Russell, keyboards
5. Eric Henry, guitar & lap steel
6. Chris Carter, drums
7. Brad Denson, bass
This was a show to remember and we’re already talking about ending the season next year the same way. Many thanks to the Lost On Iddings who morphed into the Spins with Hurl, but also to their families who came along to enjoy a lovely fall night at the Fur Peace Ranch.
A more than grand time was had by one and all… Thanks folks! See ya next year and a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
