band played at a winery in Lodi, Ca. called Jessie's Grove
Winery. It is a great place to play with an open air venue
in a beautiful pastoral setting. The sound was great being
handled by Preston who turned out to be a very capable sound
man. Norman Shaw, the producer, was great in making sure
the band was taken care of during the event.
The temperature during the performance was in the hundreds
with the sun bearing down on the performers during the first
75 minute set. A complete and total sweatfest. This was
the only drawback as the LMB was well received by the audience.
Many felt the urge to get up and boogey and cut a sod of
grass or two.
After the show the band retired to the winery, with the
nice folks who own and work at the winery. The band was
given a wine tasting tour of many fine wines that are made
at the winery, and boy was there some tasting going on!
The band had a great time and Jessie's Grove Winery is own
fine place to hang out.
