      Hi Carolann ... no set time ... I am getting there around 1:30 or so ... we will probably be scattered about ... hard to get all spaces together ... will leave location info at Blues Society Tent.

    Sal, I'm sure you are way ahead of me on this. .. The parking at the KaTiki is challenging at best. It wouldnt work for a large crowd; it's a small, intimate locals place.

    Sal, I thought I would mention that the Katiki (Katikisunsetbeach.com ) is hosting Backtrackblues.com group at about 7:00, until about 1100. In case you are roaming somewhere for an after party.
    As you know, I have to host the Tampa Bay Adventurers for the Blues Bash (w Mike) at about 6:30, but he knows I will be with my Bluesiacs in the afternoon and he has decided to encourage the group to come earlier. Good performers in the pm. I dont know where his after party is, but I'm headed for the KaTiki. See you then.
    p.s. took a new client this week and the extra hours may mean I wont be in PR this Sunday. I'll be ready for a rest.

    Doug Deming and the Jeweltones follow at 5pm, cooking up a wicked blend of traditional blues, West Coast and Texas swing, early rock, country and roots music. As the bash heads toward sunset, the master of the Hammond B3 and most soulful vocalist this side of the Mississippi, Shawn Brown, takes the stage at 6:45. Beautiful Bobby Blackmon headlines the TI Blues Bash stage at 8:30pm with southern soul and blues, seasoned with delicious R&B flavors, with the chops of a major player in the modern blues-soul pantheon.

    Festival vendors are open all day and evening, along with the food court, from 11am to 10pm. You can park all day, for $10, at lots in the Community Center Park at 104th & Gulf, at the Allied Building at 105th & Gulf, and in the lot across from Rally at 108th & Gulf. No tents, please. Umbrellas are fine. Pets on a leash are OK, too. Info:[masked] ext. 237.

    Info from the website. It *all* looks good... could be a long day. I have to break this into multiple posts... The festival begins at 11am with two sets from everybody’s favorite swing and jazz band, the 18-piece Tomkats Jazz Orchestra, who have been packing houses up and down the coast for close to thirty years. Next up are fan favorites wherever they play, Florida blues and Americana icon T.C. Carr and Bolts of Blue, featuring the amazing Josh Nelms on guitar. T.C. and the band take the stage at 1:30. Sarasota Slim brings his raucous blues-slinging band on at 3:15 for a set that always begins onstage and ends up somewhere out in the crowd.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
