BTW, I live in the Peoples Republic of Taxachusettes. Hopefully not for long. Grew up a country boy in upstate NY. You know, farms and the like. I plan on moving to NH within the year, and not as part of the FSP, mind you. Then I guess I'll begin my long journey into becoming a "real" New Hampshirite.
You picked up on the drumming thing. My NH plate used to be RLRR. I played snare drum in many marching groups. I will be back in Manch-Vegas in 2 weeks to teach some drumming for a marching group I arrange for. If I win the Lottery I would keep my house in Fla and maybe have a house on Winnepesaukee or Newfound Lake.. Travel back and forth....

I would never move back to Mass. I love my friends there. Mass. has a certain educated edgy-ness to it that I grew up with and miss where I live now. NH is great and the people are down to earth, common sense people.

Liberal VT and ME. haven't ruined it...... But they are nice states to drive through....

Cool! Me drummer too. Mainly a set player, almost 30 years now. I throw down a little guitar as well. Didn't do any of the marching stuff.

How do you know when the stage is level?
When the drool runs out of both sides of the drummers mouth!

How do you get the guitar player off of your porch?
Pay for the pizza!

I just started looking for a set. I've never played one and have always wanted to learn. Guitar????? That would be a stretch.... I'm not too good with notes and chords... I was going to give piano a try. Maybe get one of those electronic keyboards.

anyway ...let's get back to arguing..... ha ha

I love listening to talk radio from Boston. Boston politics is a sport in itself.
I download it on my computer in Fla. I get sick of listening to the national guys and the local stuff is so milktoast........

Drummer here as well! Marched with S.K.E.K. through the mid/late '60s, Princemen late '60s early '70s and Renergades early '70s; lots of fun and travel.
After the Drum Corp days I played in a cover band and did the bar scene with my congas and percussion; lots of hazy mornings.
I got stung by the Bluegrass Bug eight years ago; and I breathe and eat Bluegrass music 16/7.
Bluegrass music dosen't have drums of any sort; so I sold my kit and picked up a Mandolin. I have a lot of fun learning to pick and learning theory.
All the Best!

I have a very good friends from SKEK. Brissenden, Grimes and more....

I don't know if it counts as bluegrass but when I heard the soundtrack from "Brother where for art thou" with Geroge Clooney, it got me hooked. I love that old timey music...

Remember the band called "The Band"? I saw that "Last Waltz" Scorsese movie on that bands final concert. The drummer, Levon Helm, played a mandolin in the last song on the movie. I thought that was so cool and showed the multi-talents of great musicians.

Kepp on pluckin'

I think we have more in common than you think!

I love Jay Severin. Some people think he's too fringe, but that's what I like about him. I also like Michael Graham.

Exclamation Free Stater pub location revealed!!!

It looks like the feds have found out the pub location of many free staters.

Home

Murphys Tap Room....

http://www.unionleader.com:80/articl...1-af92810fe583

It must be like Ol' Buckman Tavern in Lexington, Mass back in 1775...headquarters of the Lexington Minutemen.

Lexington, MA : Buckman Tavern photo

Them free-staters must be conjuring up ways to overthrow the big bad government, while hoisting a few brews....just like them Minutemen..

Legend has it in Lexington that the boys were drinking all night when Paul Revere came through. So when the RedCoats came down the road they came out of the Tavern a little tipsy......
