    1. Yo, Mikey, bro, if you’re planning on going to the Jersey show, “I’ll Take You There!” 😉 I know my way around that area really well, just be advised to buckle up, because I CAN’T DRIVE 55!! 😉 ~ don’t mind me, I’m cracking the f–k up! 🙂

    1. Rockin’ My Life Away with the Red Rocker/Rum Bum Right Now! Shaka Doobie brother! Even at 74 Sammy is still going strong, he’s like the Energizer Bunny – he just keeps going, and going, and… same goes for the ol “Gear Jammer” George Thorogood! Who just happens to have 1 of the greatest bassists on the planet in his band ~ Bill (The Doctor) Blough! A Destroyer since the beginning! I’m going to do everything I can to try to make the show in NJ in June, I’m a “Man On A Mission” to see the “Rock Party” of the year! 😉

  1. Haven’t seen Sammy since 96’ during his last VH album/tour Balance. Would’ve loved to have seen him with Chicken Foot and the Circle. He seems to avoid the Pac NW.

    1. I’m still more than half asleep (as always) but isn’t Bend, OR considered part of the Pacific Northwest? Maybe they’ll add some more dates, they usually do. 1 of the best concerts I ever seen was Sammy & The Wabos at the Borgata in Atlantic City in May 2004, Cinco de Mayo! Greatest “Rock ‘N’ Roll Weekend” of my life!

    2. Yer absolutely correct. I must’ve glossed over that as I clearly was asleep. I’m gonna grab a ticket. Thanks for pointing out my oversight. It’s only 3.5 hrs aways and in a beautiful setting in central Oregon.
