THANKS TO EVERYBODY WHO CAME OUT FOR THE WOODSTOCK REVIVAL!

PICTURES HERE! (MP3s Coming Soon!)

Thanks to everybody who came out and made the 9/16 Woodstock Revival such a happening! I had a blast in the Retro 69 house band playing with a bunch of people: the CCR Rockers, Curbdogs, Jerry Zachman, Audra Nordstrom, Hank Stone, Paul Maugeri and especially Roger Silverberg, who I've been threatening to play with forever. Some cool bands (Second Chance ROCKS!) were heard as well.
