Pickin' Party Pictures - March 6th, 2004

Richard & Julie Smith, Pat Bergeson & Bob Saxton

Arnold Alpert and Paul Smith really help out by checking everybody in.  We couldn't do it without them... Thanks, guys..
Biggest audience, ever.. the Room was packed.
Bob Saxton is still the master of the fret board.  Simply amazing.
Richard Smith and Pat Bergeson play together about every month at the Station Inn in Nashville.. They and a few other fine musicians get together to jam out some superb gypsy jazz in the style of Django Reinhart and Stephan Grappelli.
These guys were nothing less than sensational..
The Richard and Julie Show is getting better and better.  (Jules is startin' to jam, folks... REALLY nice...)
"Oh, this is an amateur club.."  (lol)  Playing with this level of talent is a lot of nervous fun, folks...
Dave Duncan, Gerry Hyland, and Jim Lafferty getting ready to hear the "best."
Frank LeFebre, our new Tuesday NIght Jam keyboard player, Gerry Cummins, and his friend Bill enjoying some words.
Nice to have you back, Dan Collins.. (Our club cartoonist...)
Dave Sullivan and Bob Cox can play with the best of them... and, here they are relegated to spectators... (with joy.) 
The Towns family returned to a Pickin' Party after a few years of really being busy with their gospel ministries up around Cleveland.  Here's Bob Towns (arm broken in a church brawl.. (just joakin') getting an autograph from Bob Saxton.
Here' Bob - just a hopin'... lol
The superb music had everybody just a gabbing.
Number 2 member, Chris Vickers with JD Norman and new member, Doug Tracy.
The Party went to the dogs..... lol
The "Smith Mobile" getting packed up by Julie to head on out..
