The Vince Gill show was out of this world. I got to play auctioneer and we raised over $2400 dollars for Family Services of Tulare County & The Visalia Fox Theater. Vince autographed two guitars and we auctioned those. The bidding was fast & furious and to be honest with you, that was my very first auction! Below is the set list from that night and I was fortunate enough to have a great conversation with Vince before the show and get it signed. He's a wonderful, down to earth man! Class act!
Here are a couple more shots of Vince and Pedal Steel Guitar Player, the amazing Paul Franklin who teamed up with Vince on the new album Bakersfield. They played some Buck Owens and Merle tunes and had the place rocking with Liza Jane. Then crying with Bread & Water and Go Rest High! He is an amazing storyteller, mostly telling stories about his beloved dad and brother. And we got the back story on how the song "It's Hard To Kiss The Lips At Night That Chew Your Ass Out All day Long!" Soooo fun!
We will be playing some Vince in the Drive Thru Lunch brought to you by Randy's Bistro in Porterville. Plus we'll take all of your requests and dedications. And coming up at 2:25pm it's your KJUG Classic Cut of The Day, celebrating all the working men and women with Classics about Work. Your KJUG Classic Cut of The Day is Working Man Blues by Merle Haggard! Everyone have a great Monday!
