Well, Well, Well... Wes Lee and I made it all the way to the Finals at the IBC with our duo Sweet ‘n’ Salty!!! That means we were in the top 8 of 91 solo/duo performers from around the world!! Kevin BF Burt took Home the win! He was awesome! And our friend, Daniel Eriksen made runner up! Wes and I would have liked to have won, of course, but we’re proud of our run and happy for all who made it to the finals! Well done!! All winners!!

The Blue Tavern! I can't wait to see this place completed!! I played there once before with Belmont and Jones, David Evans, and George Mitchell....before the place had opened! In fact, I think the ink on the paper of ownership wasn't quite dry!! Gonna be fun to be back in Florida!
