Keith and I headed to Chardon on Saturday morning, to hang out in the country with TRS and his wife, Kathy, and Scott & Heather. Where TRS & Scott are gathered, there must be great fun and great music and this gathering was no exception. Scott plays lead guitar for TRS in additon to wearing many other hats in the production of TRS music. Scott is also the keyboard player for Skinny Moo and the creative genius behind Drunkdude 69. His talent is an absolute, undeniable fact. It's a shame all these pictures look so serious in nature. They really don't tell the story of the amount of fun and silliness we have when we're together. I guess it's difficult to take a good pic when you're laughing your ass off!

Tom graciously wrapped himself in a hoodie and winter coat to grill burgers and dogs for our first official grill of this party season, and we had an awesome lunch before heading back home to grab a quick nap before the Skinny Moo gig. I never did get to sleep, but there's no "getting tired" at a Moo gig. Just not possible.

What can I say about the "Moo Crew"? The one thing I can say that you won't find here on the official Skinny Moo site, is that these are some of the nicest guys you would ever want to meet. Their obvious love of music and playing together is evident in every performance. You've NEVER heard a cover band like Moo before. Where else can you hear "Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy" seamlessly blend into "Brick House" with a couple stanzas of "Zanadu" thrown into the mix? Their high energy performance always leaves me feeling like more. Once again, we all had an amazing time spending an evening with Moo at Cabana's in Mentor. Thanks, guys. YOU ROCK!!!! Now, on to the next gigs.......
