Pickin' Party Pictures - Sat, Dec 27th, 2008

Ray "Jingle Bell Rock" Cummins - Guest Picker

It helps to have grandson, Michael, daughter, Marlene and galfriend, Carolyn, helping check folks in.
We always give the "first person" who checks in a special prize:  They can sit wharever they want... LOL


Chaz Mechenbier is a local whiz guitar player who usually plays rock or stand up acoustic - however, today he started things off with some terrific finger style guitar.  
The boy is one talented musician.
Guest Picker, Ray Cummins, relaxing with his new keyboard player, Danny Burton.
Ray took center stage to show the folks just why they drove so far to hear him.
Ray mumblin' something tot he eager crowd.  LOL
Ray sounds JUST LIKE CHET!!!
"Hey, Danny - Palmer plays this one in the key of L!"  (Well, it sounds like L. (lol)
The audience really liked Ray's playing.
Ray usually plays church venues and he did play a few gospel songs, however he played a ton of old Chet tunes - just like Chet did.
The crowd sat right on the edge of their seats when it came time for the grand finale of the afternoon ----
Your organizer, Palmer Moore, came up with Ray to play rhythm for Ray while he played Blue Angel..  Oh, I guess he might have had a story or TWO.. lol
