I haven't heard that song in AGES...what an otherworldly thing of beauty it remains.

Yes, it still lives in a realm of its own.
Glad, but not surprised you know and like it.

gulp, D18. J50 is too precious even for normal gigs, and as i understand it the only increased threat is the salt air. if it was going to be several nights a week for the summer, I'd say beater, but a one off gig (one night of salt air) wont kill it.

This is exactly why a person needs great beater guitars.

But bar gig vs salt air gig, I would think the danger level may be a wash...

My brother-in-law once borrowed my 1980 Guild D-55 for a bar gig. That guitar went from smelling like rosewood and lacquer to smelling like stale beer. I no longer own it and it's the one instrument I truly miss.

Yup. I know Breezy well... just never knew if it was Brooklyn or Queens technically. Or maybe I did. I spent every day of the summer as a teen on Riis Park beaches (neighboring). Much nicer than Brooklyn’s Coney Island.

Yes they got hit by Sandy hard. Almost as bad as Normandy Beach NJ... ground zero for Sandy, and where I lost my home.


Had some family in Queens but did not spend a whole lot time there. Not sure how old you are but I remember Coney Island more as it was. The Nathans hot dogs were worth the price of admission alone. Then you could head over to Canarsie and wait for Rudy the knish guy.

'Sink or swim' decision? Take the guitar you want and 'sail on' through the gig. Yuk yuk.

I live near the beach, and have for most of my life except for a short enstranged period of suburban living... and have never had rusty tuners - most of them are nickel coated, aren't they? Anyway, give them a quick wipe over before you pack up.
(my car is garaged, but a previous spare car I parked out front got rusty on the window edges...)

I am headed out... we go on at 8:00. on the beach at Breezy's Sugar Bowl. The Irish Riviera. I suspect this will be the best gig I play.... just a great vibe and place from people who want to hear music.

I am bringing the D18. The Farida will also come but stay in the car as a just in case....

I'll post a pic of the place tomorrow...

Cheers fellas

Hey Gum...
Went great. Played 8 until 11:40... I left early. Mike stayed playing till about 1:00. I got home as it is at 1:00.... late enough for me.. packed beach crowd. Met a bunch of folks who went to school with my brother... just real friendly.
One downer is during one song near the end of the first set (love the one your with), one lady was dancing... a little older. Like my age. She had too much to drink... tripped and hurt her ankle.i felt bad for her. She was mortified. We stopped mid song right then and there to help and call medics.
When we resumed twenty minutes later, we picked up mid song Posted Image...
I didn't take pictures, but it was a load of fun.
I am exhausted tonight. I got up at 5:00 am for work...
This is a stock photo... we play inside... which opens up wide to the back deck. I am guessing about 100 folks in and out... plus folks playing volleyball on the beach.

Glad it went well.


Hope you wiped the guitar, especially the tuners, over!

Outstanding! Some of us geriatrics (😄) have to remember not to drink and dance/walk/etc..

That's one reason I quit drinking.

Just one.
