first gig new band........... Ted Mann

Usually you start slow and work your way up from the dive bars and coffee houses to the concert halls. But once in awhile you start at the top and it's all downhill after that. Ted Mann Hall at the University of Minnesota. Great Sound system and a little corner of the stage to set up in while the Social Work Department grads got their diplomas. We played a Woody Guthrie tune and "I'll fly away." The trio format includes me on whatever bass I bring along and two guitarists. Back in the saddle again.
