Good food, good friends, great music

Met some friends at Skipper's Smokehouse for dinner and a concert last night.  Great weather for it!  Finally starting to cool down in the evenings here.  My friend, Linda, is a big fan of singer Eilen Jewell and her band and talked us into going to see her perform.

Skipper's is known for their seafood and we all pigged out on their fried shrimp, hush puppies, fries and cole slaw.  Of course, there was some imbibing as well. Two bands opend for Eilen Jewell's band.  The first was Barren River Trio, a local band, then The Nouveaux Honkies.  Nice bands for the lead-up to Eilen.  She and her band put on a terrific show.  Her guitarist is incredible.  Linda and Duane got their CDs signed by Eilen Jewell after the show.   Happy campers.

Eilen autographed Linda's CD

Here is Eilen and her band performing Warning Signs.


  1. Looks good! I complimented her on her songs, as well as on her band. I did also mention her guitarist in particular - he's really, really good.

  2. Yes, I wish Sam could have been there to hear the guitarist.
