John B.'s Retirement Party

I wonder if a rock musician ever really retires?  I tend to think they don't - but the sets get a little shorter.

John B. in an Unguarded Moment
Noteworthy rock drummer and sometime author John B. Meilink is officially retiring, and as such a retirement party is mandatory.  So it's off to the underground club in Temperance, Michigan for an evening of rock music and friends who are getting older.

The name says it all.  Old Grand-Dad is not just for drinking; it's also proof against cold weather, bad tempered women and snake bite.

First Set
I can't remember what the band was playing here, but I was trying to get the drummer in motion when it was apparent he was enjoying himself.

The Band - Bad Manorz
I don't know why the band members crowded around to the left, but I think it had something to do with the P.A. system, which was not behaving as expected.

The Retired Drummer in Action
I finally got a decent picture of the elusive John B. making the wood fly.  You're looking good, old man!

As usual, I had a great time at the club, and as usual, most everyone who is laid back and likes rock music is invited.  I'm looking forward to the next session - as usual.
