Boy what a great surprise this room was. Our first time and we need to come back!

More than enough salt lamps to cleanse the room!

Yeah… this sounds pretty good!

So… before the gig… we ate!

Soft shell lobsters at the ready!

    Yeah what up wit dat ? I had a chatterbox behind me Joe at Saturday nights show. She was silent the whole show and then erupted during Watchtower. I got up and took a walk over to the sound board and listened from there. href=”#comment-58696″>@Joe K

    I was there last night, John, and you said it: a thing of beauty.
    I’ve been up since 5:45 and haven’t stopped smiling yet.

    Great show last night. Two sets who could have thunk it. Since we had to wait to buy tickets just this past week we sat in the back left of stage. Needless to say we had a Aunt B look alike who never stopped talking through the first set. Thankgoodness she & her friend moved to a empty table away from us.
    Hope everyone enjoys tonight show as much as we did last night

    See you’re in Jersey again. So nice to see you still touring at our advanced ages (you’re 4 mos older than me and in much better shape.) Wish I could stop by but too far south for me. Have a great show. Warmest regards.

    Hey Brad about a month ago I was reading Psalms and came across the 92nd . Way back in the day ….2500 years or so David was playing a ten stringed instrument called a Lyre and he also played the harp ! I wonder what he is doing in heaven today ? David was amazing. Lasts nights show was a thing of beauty . Last show is tonight ; don’t miss if .

    On this closing weekend of this leg of your life’s tour, from my morning reading and prayer, the opening of Psalm 92:
    It is good to praise the Lord,
    and to sing psalms to your name, O Most High,
    to proclaim your mercy in the morning
    and your faithfulness by night;
    on the ten-stringed lyre and the harp,
    with songs upon the lyre.
    For you give me joy, Lord, in your creation:

    Music, folks, food, and travels, Yours sure looks and sounds like a celebration of creation to me!

    (In another lifetime, I worked as an apprentice in a wooden boat yard in Arundel, long before this venue ever was, unfortunately. A special place in the good ol US of A for sure)

    Now there’s something I’ve never eaten or even heard of. Had my share is soft shelled crab, even been to Maine and eaten my fill of the hard shells. May have to go up there and try some. Sounds like a pretty singular gastronomic experience. Looks like ya’ll done got back in the rockin’ chair. Onward!

    New England at it’s finest. The lobster spread reminds me of my grandmother…the whole setting….along with the hall like the big old barn she had. Beautiful

    Great looking room up there in Maine . Safe travels to the Garden State.

    Nice pix.
    On the luck thing, I also love the way the old baseball executive Branch Rickey put it:
    “Luck is the residue of design.”
