This Saturday night October 26th, will be what appears to be my band NIGHT SHIFT's last show! Our Lead Guitarist is retiring and moving away and our Drumming is having some life situations.

We will be playing at the Nip-n-Tuck Bar and Grill in Long Branch NJ. https://www.facebook.com/NipBar/

We look to be kicking off the party around 9:00pm.

Rumor has it that a few LTG members will be attending so if you're in the neighborhood and have nothing going on, stop by and say hello. (I'll be the one playing the Guild Pilot bass!)

I will be there, and hopefully out of my mailman costume.

Sadly, I have a 6am flight on Sunday so will be unable to attend.

Knock 'em dead!

No joke, ever consider adding "the Last Time" to the set for that show?
My sympathies on the personnel issues, hope something else happens for you and the other guys if you're still looking to play out.

End of an era! How long have you guys been together? As Al said, sympathies on the personal issues, sometimes life gets in the way.

Go out blazing Kurt!

Is this like The Eagles' multiple final tours or are you really done? :uncomfortableness:

+1 on condolences for the band breaking up, sounds like you had a great run!

NIGHT SHIFT as a band has been together for ten years. In that time we had four Lead Guitarist/Vocalist. Our current guy has been with us about six years.
While we don't gig a lot compared to other cover bands, we have played over 100 shows.
The Rythym Guitarist/Vocalist and I have been jamming together for about 30 years! We will probably continue in some fashion or another.

Between sets. From the left, Fro, Grot, Kim K, and default. Kim worked for FMIC and was instrumental in LMG I, II, III and IV.

Everybody looks great! If I weren't in the midst of a Lyme-induced energy crisis, I might have gone.

Thank you all for coming, I really had to step up my game as to not embarrass myself!

The "friend" was Susan, somebody I had not seen in about 45 years and who I really didn't even know in the first place. (Another 45 years would be too soon!)
