So Calif - Independence Day Week 2013 Mini Confluence

Postby (8mileshigher) » Mon Jul 15, 2013 6:41 pm

The recent 4th of July Holiday week coincided with the So Calif visit of Mark Pytko (founder of the Rickenbacker Guitars and Basses Facebook Group), meaning it was time for another get together and Ricken Jam session. Arrangements were made to book Backline Rehearsal Studios on Sunday June 30th and lots of friends showed up, with Rics in hand.

Many thanks to John N, Paul S and Collin for manning the drums !

Here is the seventh batch ..... the new stage lighting at Backline was playing some tricks on this photographer .... people had a Blue shimmer sometimes (looking like they were Blue Meanies .... :lol: ) and other times they looked like they were in 3-D or a ghostly white.

This is my final batch of pictures on this ..... hope everyone had a great Independence Day Holiday week ... we sure did ! ! ! :D
