    Dwight Trash and The Blues Collectors will perform at the Alaska State Fair in Fairbanks on August 2 & 3, 9-11 PM. It is free to all Fair attendees.

    We have two bass players, I will be the one playing the Custom Elrick 5. Stop by and say howdy if you are there.

    The Marshall Tucker Band will also be giving a free performance but I'm not sure of their dates.

    I'd sure like to make that gig nanook. I lived in Fairbanks when I was a kid, back in the sixties. My Dad was in the Air Force, and we got stationed at Eielson for three years.

    I'd sure like to see how the city has changed over the last 40 years. Do they still hold "Golden Nugget Days", where they throw the men in jail for not having a beard?

    Ah, the memories and the wild blueberries.

    A state fair gig sounds like you are going to have a really big audience. Enjoy! And break a leg!

    yep, still have the Golden Day thing. It's just like you left it except for a few chain stores.
