NOTES FORM THE PORT Vol. 120
John Huffman’s 60th was fun playing at the Chaffey’s Lock Community Hall on Saturday. They bday boy knows lots of locals as he is basically one from his early vacationing days. Good to see Guy Kelly, Malcolm, Joe, The Sprungs, The Goulah, Gay, Veronica, fold from The Socialist Pig. New Jazz Night band, Love and Goat Boy and myself took it to them. When Spence gets a good list of requests, there’s no stopping him. Cozy little party inside that little galley. I’m playing there solo opening for Great Lake Swimmers Thu.Sept.14 too.
