Topic: chordiestock VII - 3.15.19 - 3.17.19

I created an event on FB, but for those chordians who are not FB friends, I'm posting here as well. All chordians are welcome! Let me know. Here's a group photo from last year.

Cool - You stayed at Shoreline last year, right? I was thinking I'd contact them and see if they'd offer a group rate.

It would take a lot to keep me away. Not even sure what would work.

I would love to except I am working again. If we do, it won`t be by Greyhound again. I`ll fly or drive there.

About a month to go. Not too late to make plans. Chordians who have been here in years past (I'm sure I got some spelling / names wrong, but I hope I don't leave anyone out):

Normtheguitar
Zurf
Southpaw41
Wilbaye
Topdawg
Beamer
Mekidsmom
Dirty Ed
Roger Guppy
BGD
joeyjoeyjoey

That's a pretty good collection of chordie folks from all over - several of whom have made more than one. Add your name to the list! I think Zurf and Southpaw are the only 2 who have been to all of 'em. Not sure how many more of these events I can host - I hope to make it to CSX before I call it quits. Pretty much guaranteed to have a good time!

Though he didn't make it to a formal Chordiestock, it was all the fun you had during a visit from Tubatooter that kicked off the idea for you. And Baldguitardude made it one year.  I was just thinking of Toots last night. What a nice man he was.

Re: chordiestock VII - 3.15.19 - 3.17.19

^ I had the pleasure of meeting Toots on a couple of occasions - The first at my home in NC when he came to visit along with Guitarpix for what might be called the precurser to Chordiestock.  I was very much a beginner at that time, but Toots was very encouraging and we had a nice jam. A few years later, after I had moved to FL, he was "touring" with his friend John Reno and they had an afternoon gig right here in Mad Beach. I took the afternoon off to hang out and then we went to see Southpaw at one of his gigs. Toots was always a pleasure!

There are lots of vids on utube of John Reno with Toots playing his tuba in support. Here's one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEfTv89utf8

that is a great video!

What a talented singer/player

Don't often see that combination of instruments in a band.

Really, really, cool stuff - which I had the pleasure of meeting those gentlemen.

Thanks for sharing

I hope you all have fun.  Unfortunately I have a work commitment in DC from Wednesday to Friday that will keep me from Chordiestock this year.     

Re: chordiestock VII - 3.15.19 - 3.17.19

Do too very drastic changes in my life, i can not make it this year.

Re: chordiestock VII - 3.15.19 - 3.17.19

My move in November really tapped me out. Unless the weather suddenly turns favorable and I'm able to get a bunch of work done, there is little hope of me getting there.

Looks like a change of plans for me.  My recreation director has informed me that if I'm heading to Florida for that weekend its gonna  be to Pensacola to see our grandkids in a civic theater production.  I'd like to see you all again but if it comes down between my grandkids and you misfits, you can guess who wins. hmm
