Great work organizing, Barry, and I look forward to seeing some of the regulars live.

This is so exciting, I can hardly stand it.  I should be around to see the show.  The only Hitch is that my son turns 29 on August 16th, so it will depend on when or if we have a little celebration.  I am hoping to see him right after work for a early dinner.  We shall see. 

Really can't wait.

@fishnrodds, I booked after you for 7:50 pm. That's 6:50 pm MDT (my time).

Re: checking other's time slots:

1. You'll get notice of them by email if you add them to your favorites. 

2. On the right hand side of the main page, there's a scrolling box that shows all the performers scheduled shows.

3. We also show up on the main page itself, where you see everyone's pictures.

Hey Hey.. 

I am leaving  work for a late lunch with Son in Downtown Sac.    I  am so very bummed but I don't think I will be back in time.  If I am I would mean things went very wrong. ha ha.

 

PS.   ( I am plotting out my time.. arrive in Sac 2:30.. get to down town by 250, visit, eat 2 hours, leave the grid to son's house, drive like a bat out of hell maybe I will catch the last 15 mins or more.

I can't believe I will miss this.

Hi
I think it's great what you can do I wish I was that far, but every time I play a song 2 I make mistakes. So I have to practice a year or five more.

Yup. I did an impromptu show last night as a test and to get on the board. Hopefully it will have helped calm my jitters, too. :)

You'll do great.

@Barry @Feathers @KindaScratchy @fisnrodds

Ditto to what @coolpinkone said - you were all awesome. And Toni I loved your smiley with the pink bow.
