Re: On Today's date in AUGUST Bonahistory

not sure that all those Sturgis dates came to fruition. The band left Sturgis early because there were gunshots by the stage the one set, or something to that effect. Joe made a comment at the time apologizing for the cancellations but his band's safety was more important. Not sure if I can dig up exactly but I think they left after 2 days? Will let you know if I dig it up

"not sure that all those Sturgis dates came to fruition."

Thank you...:)   Other than Kenny's photo from 8/2, other photos, video, posts (even on this Forum) were hard find.  There are many schedules listed.  At first, I wasn't sure if Joe would take up residency for a week, but the schedules matched, so that's why I put the times....as some "proof".) 

I didn't think of searching SD's State Police files!  big_smile

well you wouldn't likely find something on this forum anyway
I wish so bad we could access the content from the one that was pre 4-2006
I know Joe hates to cancel shows but to be honest, since I wasn't there anyway I was kinda glad that we would also be saved from hearing about the pickel swallowing contests and other Strugis events

Re: On Today's date in AUGUST Bonahistory

big_smile....now THERE'S a google search phrase I didn't think of using to dig deep for more info on these Sturgis shows.

You know it's hot when Joe is sporting shorts and flip flops smile

Re: On Today's date in AUGUST Bonahistory

It was indeed HOT! That was a very very memorable weekend with Bonabuddies from around the globe in attendance. I know it's a moment in time that some will never forget. I know I certainly won't. smile

Re: On Today's date in AUGUST Bonahistory

The Hot August Blues show was amazing.  What was crazy was that it happened only a few months after the original RAH and there were a lot of us who went to this show that also went to RAH, so it was like a crazy reunion of sorts.  It also cemented and created a lot more friendships which exist to this day.  So much of the credit for this working out so well for so many was the lovely hospitatlity of Cathy Siler at "Camp Cathy" Deep in the Forest.  A list of who was there would read like a who's-who of the Forum back in the day.

As I've said before (and I know this will not be the last time) the friendships I've made because of my involvement with Joe has just totally changed my life.  I have friends all over the US, UK and Europe who are always so welcoming, and who know they are welcome to come to my place anytime.  Ten years ago you couldn't even get me on an airplane - as of the moment I have flown to England four times (3 to see Joe) in four years, to Iowa, and to Chicago, and driven to Baltimore twice (from Massachusetts) as well as all over New England (well, except Vermont - haven't seen Joe there yet).  Joe is the excuse for all these trips, but the reason is to visit with all my wonderful friends I've made along the way.  Looking forward to many more of these experiences.

Sandy

BTW that 'burst Joe was playing was one of Derek's and very much an original and very expensive.  There is a video that shows Joe from the back of the stage looking the guitar over, noticing the notations on the headstalk and doing a double take over it.It was also close to the time Les Paul died and that guitar sat on stage most of Derek's set as a memorial.
