Busy weekend for the OFBs

Busy, busy, busy. Followed by more busy. It’s awesome, really.

So the Thursday Jam this week is right in the middle of opening day for the Kalamazoo Blues Festival. Will Stacy Mitchhart come down after his set downtown? I hope so? What if Anthony Gomes or Popa Chubby get into town a night early? Now I’m getting excited. I’m sure that won’t happen…but an Out of Favor Boy can dream, can’t he?

Friday is Friday the 13th, but I’m not afraid. There’s no time to be afraid. I’ll be leaving an all-afternoon meeting at work, driving like a bat out of hell to get to downtown Battle Creek for another exciting Vibe @ 5. We had a great time last year and we’re so excited to be back this year. Mostly, though, I’m just excited the forecast isn’t calling for 105 degrees.

Saturday, OFB isn’t playing. But I’m playing with Marisa and the Mad Cats at the Blues Festival. We’re playing at 12:15, which isn’t really a very prestigious time slot. We’ll probably be playing for a dozen volunteers. It’s me, KVBA president Ralph Yingling on keys, KVBA VP Mike Barker on bass, Chris Yingling on drums and the appropriately named Marisa on vocals. The volunteers are sure to love it. Of course they’re not going to leave either way, so who cares…

Next week is the Return of the Great Hawg Roast over in Metro Detroit. What a great private party that is. I wish all the OFBlog readers could be there. You’d both have so much fun. The party hasn’t happened for a couple of years as the hosts decided to put party money toward college tuition…or something. I suppose it’s a good decision. I can’t wait to see the pictures of the pig this year…

There’s talk of OFB on the mall the weekend after that? Hmm…sounds interesting.  Stay tuned.
