Saturday, June 30 - maybe a bit of music at the bar...
Saturday, July 7 - Island Jam '07 is here. See you at Barb's. Bring an instrument. Sorry, no pyrotechnics or mosh pit this year.
Saturday, August 4 - Pig roast at the bar will feature tunes by the West End Piper and myself, from 6pm until ??.

All other performances are at the whim of the management. Wink

Hope to see you!

Dan and Piper:

The Miller family is back from Spain and looking very much forward to visiting the island this weekend (8-3 to 8-5) and stopping in on the 4th to see y'all sing. Dan, maybe we can do another rendition of Bleecker Street . . .

Welcome back! Hope you had a great experience in Spain.

I will look forward to singing with you again. Bleecker Street it is. I'm also expecting a request for Kathy's Song, and I have a harmony part to it, so... I'll print some lyrics for us.

The fun is to start at 6pm this time, so there should be plenty of daylight for families to come on out. We'll be there all evening, or as long as anyone can stand us. Wink

I hear the drizzle of the rain, like a memory it falls / soft and warm, continuing/ tapping on my roof and walls

And from the shelter of my mind, through the window of my eyes . . .

As one of my favorite songs, I have been singing that one a long time--and trying (without success, of course) to sing the harmony like Art Garfunkel would (as you probably know, the version of that song on S&G's greatest hits cd just has Paul Simon singing the melody--I don't know if Garfunkel sang harmony on it on other albums). But I do know the lyrics, melody and harmony--so whichever you want to sing, I'd be happy to do the other.

Glad to see Dan posted some pic's. My memory card was full by mid-day Friday so I wasn't able to capture any of the fun. I know your friend Kim snapped some pic's of Claire playing on the steps. I'd love to see them as well as other pic's from the evening. We had a great time and met some new folks. Dan and Jeff, you two were great! Any chance of future performances? Maybe Labor Day?

Dan .thanks for sharing your pictures once again ..

The sad part of it was I did not know much of any of them .. but that is the natural way it goes ... There are groups of people that are there for a very long time then new ones come ..

My brother Dave and I were talking about this some time ago ... When we would come back to visit there would be just a few if that we knew ..and the new people thought they were old timers and we were the new ones but in fact we were the old timers as we lived there at one time ..
people come and people go ..we all have our time there, and we all love the island ..

This is the first opportunity I've had to check in on the site all summer. I don't want to brag, (really!) but I just came home yesterday after being on the island for over 8 weeks! Now it's time to prepare for another school year. I just thought I'd tell everyone that I got some great shots of Island Jam '07 this summer and as soon as I get them off our other computer (which is presently on the island with Jeff), I'll make an attempt to load them onto the site. It's hard to believe that the summer is coming to an end, and now we'll have to look toward next summer's "Island Jam '08"!

Jeff is taking the girls to the LAST story hour at the museum tomorrow morning and Thursday is the LAST square dance! How did the summer fly by so quickly? Rob, you really have to get your girls down for a square dance next summer!
