Chickenfoot to play Sammy's 20th Anniversary of Cabo Wabo Cantina
Party with the Foot at the Cabo Wabo 20th

The Chickenfoot boys will be helping Sammy celebrate 20 years of the Cabo Wabo Cantina down in Cabo San Lucas April 23-24th, 2010 and want you to come join them!
Sammy is inviting everyone who has ever been there once to be there twice and make this the most fun ever had in Cabo!! The foot plays Friday and Saturday, but the party starts on Thursday. Like Sammy's birthday bashes, tickets will be FREE and *first come, first serve* (No advance purchase). So that's three nights including two free Chickenfoot shows, so that's the why, where, when, so come on down and let's Wabo!!

Melodic Rock Festival # 2 - Reminder

Now doesn't this look like a great US gig?!
Wish I could go, unfortunately we have prior commitments, but I strongly recommend this event to everyone that loves good rock music.
We went to the first one 3 years back and it was a great event and most of the bands are willing to mix it up with the crowd before the show.
It really is a great vibe event.
