Dave rocks out on his twangy Telecaster while playing for Stephen Simmons, who was in Ashland, VA last Friday night. That’s Paul on drums and Willie on bass.
My younger brother Dave was in town Friday to play a show up at the Ashland Coffee & Tea house with Stephen Simmons. We had a good time at the show and I learned that the Richmond area has at least one decent place to go listen to music (I’ve so far been less than impressed, as you can tell).
That night, he and drummer Paul Griffith stayed at our house. Paul was in dire need of some wifi, so we hooked him up in order to try and make some publication deadlines he had. The next morning, Dave joined me and Angela at the training team for our Saturday long run. Afterwords, it was Smoothie King (our latest addiction) and some showers. We took the guys out to lunch at a local joint we’d been wanting to try ourselves and everyone seemed to agree it was well worth it.
We wish that Dave and the rest of the band could have stayed even longer, but it was off to North Carolina for another show that evening. We’ll look forward to having some more bands traveling through to listen to and hang out with.
