    Friday night I had a gig so I missed the guest appearance of Bob Weir.

    Bobby Vega was on fire throughout - total groove-meister.
    He had his killer sounding GlockenKlang head and cabs, his amazing old J bass, a P Bass and his Ribbecke Acoustic for some of the set on Saturday.

    Fun times in Marin!
