Fitzies opening

This was a first. I pull up to the club where I'm supposed to be playing in an hour and all I see is a busy work site. There's a guy loading equipment into a pick-up right out front and the windows are covered with Brown construction paper. Can you believe that an hour and a half later the last mirror is glued to the wall behind the stage, the guy steps down off my amp and we start to play. Oh yes, and the place instantly fills with people. By the third night we're ready to hit the ground running but the minute we start, Rod's amp caks out. After fumbling around for twenty minutes we figure out that it happened when the owner lowered the dimmer at the bar, and the AC plug was affected. Great time playing with drummer Don Vickery
