notes: Hosted by Kevin Franklin at Guitar Works in Greenwood, Mike and Bryan played to a sold-out crowd of ~80 people in a smallish room – tickets proceeds benefitted local Red Cross and food-pantry charities. Kevin’s a first-class goofball, and he contributes a great Dweezil Zappa story in addition to emceeing the raffle-giveaway of a guitar and some related gear. I include the entire show here, including his bits, in the interest of continuity; you can choose to play back only the music tracks if you get tired of hearing the talk. Mike played a few different Taylor guitars throughout the show – listen closely and you’ll be able to figure out which one is featured on each song (hint – there was only one acoustic).

notes:
07/29/2013 Mike writes: “Stunned by the loss of my friend Greg Hamby. Bryan Beller and I played in his backyard four years ago and had a beautiful time, and we have kept in touch since – he was a completely open-hearted, deeply spiritual individual and boy, oh boy will he be missed. He loved music about as much as anyone I’ve ever met and I like to think the sounds are amazing where he is now. Rock on Greg.
