July 13, 2009 - Hackney's Swing Session

There was something in the air that night, oh lord, oh lord. Can't quite put my finger on it, but there was a certain electricity. The house was as close to full as it has ever been, and the people were geniunely excitied - coming up and talking, dropping names and compliments. Vince was just back from Mexico, Rob was complaining about being a 13 year sub, Chuck Clarke reappeard with his two daughters in tow, MaryBeth Clark and Bonnie Blomarz were in the house, things were simply popping.

Rich Clark sat in for the second set on lead trombone and, in continuing our tradition of throwing OJBkids into the frying pan, Chuck Clarke's 13 year old daughter Robyn sat in on trumpet for the second set openner, Leap Frog.

Drink of the night was Blue Moon.
