Los Lonely Boys in Winston Salem

 Thanks to Salem Stitcher for the photos....I didn't even ask first but stole them from her Facebook page. 

We met up at the new Ziggy's last night for the Los Lonely Boys concert.  The new facility is great, my only complaint was it was too loud.  I know it sounds like I am getting old, but when the sound is too loud all the clear guitar riffs become distorted I think.  We sat stood upstairs along the rail (they took our chairs for the gold circle seating that cost another $20) but had a great view.
Henry(Lead Guitar), Ringo (Drums) and JoJo(Bass)  Three bothers from San Angelo Texas

I had teased all night that I was going to do whatever it took to get a pick....but Go Postal wasn't too worried, he knew I wouldn't really get down there with the other groupies dancing in front of the boys.  But as they played their biggest hit Heaven...Henry started tossing picks.  On the very last one he looked up at the balcony and we started yelling and waving our arms...and he flung it.  Surely it bouned back downstairs...but NO, there is was laying at Lisa's feet and I dove down for it.  Good thing she was a friend!!  Look how he had sawed off the tip playing so hard. Guess I won't be able to use it on my Mandolin but what a COOL momento of a great evening.

What a great souvenir; I'm impressed!They have some nice talent coming through Ziggy's. I gave Leigh Anna tickets for Sister Hazel coming up there later this month.

I still can't believe he sailed that pick up there to us. Like Randy said - it was meant to be.
