    Bump & Run

    Thought I'd bump this back up high this morning. Man, I'd like to come to the jam but I am just too far away in Crowley. A weekend nite you bet but having to be at work the next morning at 6:30 AM sucks. I will however be in F.W. tonight celebrating my brides B'Day. Maaaaaybe we can get by to hear and meet you Mr. Hash Brown! Hope you all have a great jam and I'm looking forward to a Ft. Worth Jam in the future.

    Just wanted to say thank you to Hash Brown for making this happen. Saw lots of gorgeous Tele's and much Twang was had by all!

    I don't know all the names to the faces, or the years of the Tele's either, but here are a few...

    Until Hash Brown shows up to help identify some of the other folks, I'll give it a shot on some of the guys that I know. For starters that is Dallas' own bluesmeister (transplanted from Connecticut, I believe) Hash Brown holding the two Telecasters. Hash Brown is one of the most respected blues guitarists around, as well as being a great harmonica player, vocalist and songwriter. He has been hosting regular blues jams in Dallas for over twenty years. He's done a lot of recording - both on his own and backing up other folks.

    Other guys are Brian Wilkinson (goatee, wearing a gray cap and playing the sunburst tele), from the blues band Three Time Fool. Wallace "Wally" Watson (white hair, leather jacket) is in one photo playing a butterscotch Tele. Brandon (Buck) Galbraith, also with the band Three Time Fool, with the dark ballcap and playing a butterscotch Tele, in one of the photos of Hash Brown. Then there's Macus (Whitey), wearing the blue denim shirt. There are also a couple of photos of Holland K. Smith. Holland is another great guitarist, vocalist, songwriter. He's toured internationally and has several recordings. He's another one to put on your list of acts not to miss if he comes to your area. That's Holland in the photo that shows Hash Brown's drummer Kevin Schermerhorn.

    That's me up there with Wally with my HWY1.

    The guy with the nice Thinline whose face is obscured by the mic goes by Big Mike.

    The guy with the white hair and glasses goes by Uncle Sam.

    I have lots of other pics too, but I only posted the Tele player pics.

    Hey Everybody,
    it sure was fun! Here is a little more info on the guitars and players:
    My two teles: red one is a 51' body with 63' neck, other one is a Dec. 51' Tele(#1630).
    The nice quilted thinline played by Mike Brandenburger is a custom made job, neck and body by Brian Monte.
    Marcus is playing a Tokai Breezy Tele
    Brian Wilkinson is actually Mike King(original drummer for 3 time fool) playing a Highway 1 Tele.
    Lin Woodham is playing a 59' Tele he has owned since he was 14 years old.
    Buck Galbraith is playing a custom made 53' copy Tele made by Big Tex down near Houston.
    Mike Bennett(playing a green 62' custom shop reissue) and Sam Bifano(custom made tele)
    Others not pictured:
    Randy Williams playing a 56' custom shop reissue,
    Paul Shnieder playing a Mexi tele,
    Doug(?) playing a cool Custom made white thinline.
    All in all, probably 20 or more teles in the room at once.
    Pretty cool.

    I'm SO sorry I missed it. My daughter was playing with her jr. high band at the local football game. I'm going to have to catch the next one!

    FYI, Just got an email from Hash saying that he's going to try and do a Twang Tuesday at Ernie's the first Tuesday every month and see if it picks up.

    The next one will be December 1st, so for all you folks who couldn't make it last time, mark your calendars, and try and make it out!
