    RickC up from the skies

    As many of you know, we did a gig with Gary sitting in on guitar up at Killington recently. Gary plays with Jiggle the Handle, and has recently been gigging under his own name as well. I picked up a CD from him at Killington, a live show with his current band, and it has not left my CD player since. He is a phenomenal player, beautiful long fluid lines, and writes some great tunes as well. I wish I could compare it to something else, but it's really unique; jammy, yes very much so, but not really like anyone else out there. Gary and his band will be at Tammany Hall in Worcester MA this Saturday night (4/28/07). I definitely plan on being there. www.garybackstrom.com /rick

    Ya'll, On Friday we had the great pleasure of playin' with Gary B' again. Man... there are not many like him. To start off he played a really cool acoustic set including some down home slide that gave me chill bumps. Then, sitting in as our lead/slide man, his tasteful solos stopped the show. I found myself looking at G's hands goin' what the hell. On a personal note I want to thank Gary for inspiring me and for encouraging me to stretch out. His support means alot to me. What a generous dude. Peace & Love, JB

    Ya'll, Gary B' joined us again for 2 sets at Dante's in Quincy, MA. Believe me, the pleasure was all ours. The crowd was tiny but mighty and the love was felt. I can't tell you how fullfilling it is to play with a guy like Gary. He's an amazing player and person. His generosity when it comes to sharing the music is just wonderful. GO SEE GARY - and come see us too :) Peace & Love. JB
