First time for the whole unit to practice in a long time–Steve’ birthday bash rehearsal. We’ve brought back some songs from the past including: Hotel California, Reelin’ in the Years, No Matter What, Rock and Roll. Look for a new Journey song “Don’t Stop Believin'”. We’ve got a few others on the list too. We should have quite a few new ones for you by the time we’re at Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace and Coyotes.

Hard to think summer is upon us after so much rain, but if you’ve lived in Portland for any time you just start describing it as a “warm rain.” Beadhead just finished an outdoor gig (fortunately we were well covered) at The Reserve Golf Club’s “Big Kahuna” party. We’re slated to play The Tillicum on July 23rd but we’ve just heard that The Tillicum has closed. Too bad, it’s a Portland institution–hope somebody revives the place. We might find a substitute venue–stay tuned. Looks like some private events late July/early August and then we’re at Hillsboro’s Tuesday Marketplace on August 24. A fundraiser in White Salmon, WA in late August and then we’re back at Coyotes September 16 & 17. We’re looking to get back to our regular rotation there. The annual Buffett Bash happens in October and we’ll be setting the table for Parrotheads at Bleachers the weekend that Jimmy comes to Portland for a concert. We’ll be busy learning some new songs this summer–including an original throughout the summer. You can check the schedule on www.beadheadrocks.com. Hope to see you soon.
