  1. my buddy is working with the folks putting this show on in berkeley. thought some of you might be into it.


    Get ready to tap your toes and wiggle. 'Cause Walt Strony is coming to town to
    play a solo virtuoso concert of light classics, historical pop, jazz, and movie
    music at Berkeley Community Theater.

    He'll be playing the NorCal unit orchestra, consisting of 35 tons of musical
    hardware, meticulously restored and maintained by a staff of dedicated
    volunteers over the last 20 years. Those of you who were on the tour on 4/24
    know this is no exaggeration. All acoustic, not a single loudspeaker or amp
    anywhere in it -- and doesn't need any!

    This may be your last chance for a while. Plans are in the works for some
    remodeling at the theater so who knows if we'll have a 2004-05 season?

    Here's the plan: On May 9 (sunday) we'll meet for lunch at Long Life Veggie
    House at 1pm @ 2129 University Ave. Veggie lunch plates are under $5 w/plentiful
    food, seafood lunch plates also available for more $$

    Once everyone is well-fed we'll stroll down to BCT for the concert at 2:30pm.
    We'll get our tickets ($12) and I will show you the best seats in the theater.
    Then get ready for 2+ hours of pure entertainment -- all played from memory. If
    you've been to other professional concerts you know $12 for an afternoon of
    great live music is a bargain.

    I'll be there.

    Gotta love making plans on a public forum. Phones are now obsolete.
     
  7. phones connected to the wall are obsolete. phones with 50 or more buttons are the way to go.
     
  8. hey you Frisco guys, have you ever heard of a local SF band called Transcendental Hayride. A old friend of mine is in that band. Hope you guys have nice time..
