Thank you Jeff, That was an amazing show. All the bands were just great. You really know how to put on a party. Thanks again.

Any info on the convention, Place, Bands. And what going to happen in the south bay?

Surf Fink,

thanks for coming and the comments.

The SG101 convention will be Sat. Aug. 13th,
at the Starting Gate in Los Alamitos, across the street from the Los Alamitos horse racing track.
The Bands are 95% confirmed I should be announcing the line up soon.



No plans for a South Bay version of the Eddie Benefit as of now,
but we are thinking about it.
If we do it, it will probably be in a few months.
stay tuned,

Thanks again to the Tiki Folks who came to this.
I am prod of you for gettin' it.

Jeff(btd)

A great day with fantastic performances. It was a pleasure to be a part of it, and I hope the money raised will somehow make Eddie's life just a little simpler.

I also wanted to note what an awesome job our server did. She must have visited our table over fifty times throughout the course of the day. K
udos to Don's for staffing the event so well.

Jeff - I didn't know until reading one of your notes above that it was your dad that was working the entrance. I remembered him fondly from The Hula Girls / Tequila Worms show. What a great guy.
Also, I know you don't like to have the spotlight turned on you, but you worked incredibly hard leading up to and during this event, and you deserve a great deal of credit. It all went very smoothly - a testament to your efforts.
Well done, Sir!

Yes, I agree Don's staff were excellent. And your Dad's a cool guy.
And back a few post you mention some in the south bay coming. That would be another Eddie concert, Great. Thanks

Tiki Kitty--was it 50 times? Thanks for keeping track-- I lost count on how many "ice teas" with floated "coca cola" and a mint sprig we ordered at our table over the course of the day!

Surf Fink,

I don't think they do,
I will send you a PM with the rhythm guitar players e-mail address,
and you can ask him how to get one.
