Great Vintage Primo Beer Hawaiian shirts.

I just finally got me a dark blue one in XXL.

I am bummed to hear that the Halibuts probably wont play this summer, because Pete is too busy with LSJ's.

Sigh Confused Argh No

Sorry, I know it's not a great photo, but I thought the Halibuts should have some representation here. What an amazing band, yet people don't talk about them much. Their run of shows at Toe's Tavern in the 80s is legendary.

Hey, hey,hey......is that a Bari-sax I spot off in the distance? Way cool! I played Bari-sax in the High School Concert Band winter 1963. Maybe that's why I chucked it and got my first guitar in Jan of '63. That sax was one heavy rascal!!!!!..............ed

I was gonna say that Pete probably isn't on here, but Rick posts occasionally, and then there he is...

Hey Rick, join in discussion more often man.

Halibuts played for me at HBISM in 2005 and I sure wish they would again someday. The last known email address I have for Rick doesn't work anymore so I assume they don't play at all anymore and that's a shame. Cry

I'm still around. The 'buts had a pact to play at least 2 shows a year, There's not a lot of space in Pete's schedule this summer. Sigh

was hoping to get the Buts to do a re-union show for this years

SG101 convention, Pete and Rick were up for it, and wanting to do it, but then I heard from Pete, that the LSJs might be touring in Aug. so he has to keep the month open.

Just found this: Everything you want to know about the Halibuts, asked by Brian Neal Smile
http://surfguitar101.com/ygroup/thread/2527/
There is a short video on youtube from that series of gigs, I think. Based on that I would really like to get my hands on a copy of "Live at Toes" one day. Or one of their KFJC recordings.
