I can play Apache, point of no return, the breeze and I (by which group since many people cover this song?) and California dream in'.

Aloha :
Time is tight. Glad to see more players getting into the after the pier jam. (Pier Jam - was there a band named this?) in the next days ahead I will be attending area shows and doing "our thing" as we arrived yesterday (Wednesday) hoping to be able to compile complete lists for ensemble set ups. If they are incomplete , we will fly by seat of pants on the day of show. I expect to post chord sheets for tunes I may be involved in. Encourage others to do the same (better than bumping)(no not that kind of bumping) you know you can always direct email me as my address has always been at the bottom of the post. I will check and add these at the end of the day. Hoping to attend BBQ at Bill's tomorrow. See some of you there.
Otherwise Saturday - the BIG DAY and looking forward....

Aloha Carol:
Very sorry not to have posted a follow up to the jam which occurred at Surf Dogs on Sunday following the Surfing Sundays at the Huntington Beach Pier (which was just wonderful - sorry I did not run into you there).
So I am glad to report that the jam at surfdogs came off rather well, I believe.
I ran a list of all those willing to participate, asked for repertoire from each and herded the cats, so to speak.

Here is the list of what transpired song wise:
After a wonderful non-raucous set by GEORGE TOMSCO & MIKE VERNON with guest shot by Paul Johnson with George there was a session of one tune after another. I may be getting some of this in wrong order or wrong players list. If you feel the need to correct it... Add to it.. Embellish it...please do.

The EDDIE BERTRAND tribute set organized by Maxx.
Maxx. - playing the Eddie Bertrand guitar.
BigWave Dave Becker - bass
ScottyBravo - drums
Chris -guitar (sonichris)
Squad car +

Reef Rider & Cassandra Complex +
(Also known now as the Chad & Jeremy Project)
Chad Shivers - guitar
Jeremy - guitar or bass
Tim Moritz - bass ( let me see the video )
Jamie - guitar
I think Scotty on drums

Penetration in G

Jeff Hansen - bass
Doug the Cossack - drums
Bruce Brewington - lead guitar
Don Schott - rhythm guitar

Jack the Ripper & mr. Moto with Niels Jansen of Phantom Four on drums
BTD - bass
Miguel Perez - drums
Mike Vernon - guitar
Paul Johnson - guitar

Emilio - guitar
Tim Moritz - bass
Miguel Perez - drums

Bruce Brewington - guitar
Scott - drums
Don Schott- bass

Rising Surf & Apache
Maxx - guitar
Ivan - guitar
Doug - drums
Jeremy - bass

Chris - guitar
Fade - guitar
Doug - drums
Jeremy - bass

Like I said, most of this is from ill taken speedy notes made on the spot, rushed and memory. I'm sure there were more tunes as I also remember playing bass in an all out guitar battle - I think it was MISERLOU- I think Bruce on guitar and Maxx on guitar.

It was my first time herding musical cats and a very rewarding experience. The videos are the proof. We need to talk to Guy Moore about that.

So often other rabbits were pulled out of the hat. I could not write them all down but these with Maxx Kominski are pretty cool ... Keep the clips coming!
