Greetings from Howard Colorado… This weekend marks the 10th anniversary of my first December Birthdays Bash at the Thunderbird, a celebration for several prominant figures in Florissant including bar owner Russ, and handyman Dave. Traditionally the event begins with a potluck featuring several prominant figures in Florissant including Bear, Elk, and Heffalump. Then several prominant figures from the regional Rhythm & Blues scene take the stage to jam the night away. This year's lineup, dubbed the Hatfield Hayes Hybrid, will feature members of Salida's Mo'Shampipple including Lil' Ernie. This IS a public event with Holiday Cheer, cold beer, and Reindeer...stew.
We end the year with a Hayes Epp & Bones double header.
