Nov 11th

The furnace was broken at Burger King. So it was almost as cold inside as outside. The band setup and played to a crowd of people that were all bundled up with coats. It was Alice’s birthday and we celebrated with cookies. Guests were Ron Fine and Danny C.

Nov 18th

The heat was back on, almost too much. Guests were Ron, Bud and Kenny.

Marvin G. will play with the band on Sat, Nov 8 at American Legion, but that will be the last time.  He has a new job playing with a Band in Independence, with guaranteed money.  So sorry we will loose Marvin Gregg, but we had him a lot longer than we thought we would.

We had a special guest at BK last night, Kathy Lynn, singer.  She was very good. Danny Contreras and Ron Fine also joined the band for a few songs.

It was Jean Hightower’s birthday and Jim’s too. We celebrated with cookies. We also celebrated Gordon and Doris’ 53rd wedding anniversary with cake.

The band thanks everyone for the “tips”. That is the only payment they get for playing every Tuesday night besides an occasional cookie or cake.

Join us at the American Legion this Sat night from 7pm until 11pm. The address is 7500 W 75th, Overland Park, KS. There is a $5 cover charge at the door. Don’t forget to bring snacks to share with everyone.

Here is a message from Doris:

Marvin Gregg will play with us Nov 8 at American Legion, but that will be the last.  He has a new job playing with a Band in Independence, with guaranteed money.  He will not be playing at BK again.  He came over this morning & worked with Alex, our grandson.  Alex is going to try to play at BK, and we will see where we go from there. 

We will have a special guest at BK this Tues, Kathy Lynn, singer.  She is very good, Gordon says.  So sorry we will loose Marvin Gregg, but we had him a lot longer than we thought we would.

Thank you, Doris
