Shakin’ All Over!

These same photos are on Facebook, so if you’re a denizen of that particular social network, chances are that you will have already seen these pics. Nonetheless, if you’re a free-thinking non-conformist and never go NEAR Facebook, then here are some photos “never before seen anywhere at any price”. To see larger versions of the photos, just click on each one.

The occasion was Rosie’s 52nd birthday, so the band converged on Donegal’s Pub in Surrey in order to celebrate in the manner to which we have become accustomed — with several adult beverages! The band that evening was The Shindiggers, featuring Scott Young (our producer and engineer) on drums, and after a while, Art & Kevin got up onstage to perform Roadhouse Blues, minus Captain Maniac (I was in Langley enjoying the Barracuda concert at the Cascades Casino, so I didn’t show up until about 10:30).  It was after they’d finished the song and returned to the thankless task of being bar patrons that yours truly walked in the door of the pub!

Being the generous souls that they are, the Shindiggers asked me to do a tune in the last set, which I naturally & eagerly agreed to. When I got up on the stage to sing (with Scott playing drums), it was determined that the song I wanted to do (Shakin’ All Over) was not one that Carl the bassist was familiar with (or did not wish to play!). However, Scott volunteered to be substitute bass player instead, so I sat down behind the drum kit and was vocalist/drummer!

Thanks to Michelle Yu for some great photos!
