The I Jammed at the Beach Blog Post...

Sure we brought guitars including a cigar box guitar I made as a birthday gift for Suzi. It's made from one of  her dad's old cigar boxes which I estimate to be of 1950s vintage. Funny story here. Suzi used the U.S. mail to send me two cigar boxes and a shirt as a birthday present. They were mailed in January, the month of my birthday and the package was post marked as such. I got the package in late March. Since Suzi's birthday is really in May and I delivered this guitar in July I am just as prompt as the mail.  Here's Suzi and guitar. Look out Pine Knot! By the way I think Suzi turned 31 on her birthday or that is how long I have known her or something like that. I guess that makes her husband Charley (they spent all week at the beach with us) 39 because I want to say I made his acquaintance in 1976.   
Matt sets the groove on maraca while my cigar box guitar celebrity endorser Bill Cooney cranks a tenor banjo.  By the way if you note product placement we are now sponsored by Snark tuners which is a really great product and I stay in tune a lot better that if I was sponsored by Bud, Old Mil, or Milwaukee's Breast. 

Cathy and her cousin Michael know a lot of the same songs. When Cathy was a teen she babysat Michael. Little did his parents know she was spinning Beatles, Houses of the Holy and Dr. Hook and the Medicine show records during this time ( maybe even the Eagles "On the Border" but they act like they don't remember that one) and what the hey looks like everything turned out ok. Hope all ya'll can say the same. 

There was a band in New Orleans and the guys are still around that called themselves the Radiators. Said their music was fish head music. I guess they were trying to do the Jimmy Buffet parrot head thing but just be a little stinker. In this photo I think Warren is working on arrangements for a Radiators tribute band.
