Cool Steve Bartlett
O.K.....Lot's going on here. Let's look at music first. This gig will be ongoing for Friday nights in the weeks to come...let's just see this going on forever..OK?, Steve's playing at THE STONEGATE in Tacoma each Friday night with that awesome music legendJERRY MILLER..what an honor this is.
JERRY MILLER, guitarist from MOBY GRAPE, back in the 1960's. There's lots of stuff online 'bout him, so, take a look...O.K?
Anyway, Steve and Jerry been hitting it off. AND, tomorrow, Steve's getting together with Jerry and going over some tunes for this Friday night's gig... Friday, Sept. 28, 2012  and it will be fantastic.  Address for THE STONEGATE is 5421 South Tacoma Way. That's easy to find. Take the Tacoma Mall Exit off I-5...I think that's 54th and go west to South Tacoma Way. The phone is 253/743-2255. Music starts at 9 pm., ends 1 am. The pizza is great, beer's ice cold and they serve mixed drinks too. It'll be fun. JERRY MILLER/guitar/vocals, Steve BARTLETT ON BASS, and KEVIN CHRISTENSEN/drums.
Steve's also been rehearsing with his music buddy, music instructor MIKE KARNES. They get together each Sunday and just have fun, relax and play...Steve loves it. Both of them have been just playing forever...just 'bout 50 years music experience each. They really admire each other's musical genius, and relax. It's so much fun for them both. They get together each week in Olympia.
My hubby ran into G.W. TAYLOR/vocals yesterday. I love his voice and will look on YOUTUBE for a video. G. W. is a find actor, and has been in many performances put on by talented NANCY TRIBUSH HILLMAN, at THE NEW TRIAD THEATER in Yelm, over the years. He has a wonderful CD out too. I'll check it out and find out where you can find it and post it here OK?
Steve talked to singer/song writer TOD LEMKUHL/guitarist/vocals over this past week about getting together for some music. Hopefully, that will be happening soon.
Bye for now. Jan

Thanks Kevin. Just some of the folks that Steve mentioned to me were...AL EARICK/guitar/vocals, who forgot his guitar , but his wife Donna looked great. Cool Donna. JEFF WALLACE/keys was there and CAROL ROSE/ vocals. 'Hi' to you guys. Steve enjoyed playing several times with JERRY MILLER/guitar and also TIM HALL/guitar. Kevin always knew how to put on a party and there lots of cool people there.

Steve went up north of Everett to see his family for a Christmas get-together last week end too. He gave several of his family members copies of the new WALTER's BIRTHDAY CD.
