Upsidedown & Backwards



Upsidedown & Backwards, a very cool blues, funk, and soul band (and I mean band because it takes a band like this to be so cool), played at our local Beer Geeks in Highland on Thanksgiving evening. My son was in town, so he and I went out for some tunes and a beer.

Needless to say, Ryan Frahm on lead guitar and vocal is very talented. For as many times as I have seen and listen to him play, each time still feels new. His play seems to change with what happened during the week or the day. He streaks out in the moment of play what he feels. A true blues man.

Beer Geeks is a very cool place to have a beer and be geeky at board games, and watching of geek shows on the telly. The staff is super courteous, willing to help you try a new beer, or to just kick back with.

Here are some photographs of the evening. Enjoy!

greenCOW Coworking - Holiday Kickoff



Having a lot of photographs at greenCOW Coworking in Hammond, IN, I was asked to come and support them during the City of Hammond 10th annual Holiday Kickoff Celebration. I did not know what that exactly meant, however I did get to see "A Christmas Story" three times! That was exciting because I have never watched it from beginning to end before. Just parts of it.

Friends were there, like artist Gary L Price, who's work you can either buy in person, or through his Etsy site. Besides friends there, the community was welcomed the walk through and to stop and play some games and to make things. Me, I ate the cookies. The kids looked at me sort of weird, with both my hands full.

Here are some photographs I took. Mostly of Gary because I enjoy his art. I do own a few pieces . . .















If you are starting your business, need some space to start out at, need some help with growing your entrepreneurial business, greenCOW Coworking may be the place for you. Check them out!

Zhou B to Wildrose



My bride Christi and I did our 3rd Thursday thing (at least it was a thing . . . age / time / money crept up on us) and went to the Zhou B Art Center to visit our artist friends, to support Gary Price one of our close artist friends, and to just take in Zhou B. It has been a while since I sat back to just take it in.

I would like to take this time too, to thank Robin Rios of 4Art. Though I may not frequent Zhou B as much as I would like, it is always fun to stop by her studio. The first photograph is of some art in her studio.








This next photograph is of our friend Gary Price. His art is the bottom right. You can find his art for sale on Etsy by clicking "here".









After Zhou B., Christi and I headed back toward home to Wildrose Brewing Company, in Griffith, IN. Of course we were also going to listen to the Corey Dennison Band. If you have not had the chance to taste some beer, food, and some blues, then get yourself over to Wildrose when this band is there, or find the band on Facebook and go see them. (Contact information is at the end of this blog.)






Corey has a habit of not sitting still. He is motivated to get the crowd involved and to entertain us with blues music. The next couple photographs are of Corey walking around, singing, and playing his guitar. Sometime all at once, sometimes individually.



















I saw this coming about a minute earlier, after Corey walked behind the bar.



*Wack*, yep, this bar be strong enough . . .

























Some Gerry Hundt on guitar . . .











There were great bass and drum solo's that I took video of. I will load them a little later. Unfortunately when I switch to video the camera settings change, and if I do not remember that, the photographs are "too slow" when I switch back and I get a lot of blur. Hence whey I do not have a lot of photographs of the other guys. I need to stop taking video with my camera!









Our dog Bubba, always welcoming us home . . .
