Wonderful to see this, Rich. 8) Makes me wish I were out there; I can't find anyone to jam with here in the Rock & Roll capitol. :roll:

Thanks, Jeff.
There's also two videos posted on Mark Pytko's You Tube channel from Saturday

First one is "My Back Pages" which for some reason started out at a snail's pace and half a year later we finally picked up the tempo !! I guess people shouldn't role the video recorder until after the Jammers have warmed up, a bit, and figured out what we're doing :shock: :? "My Back Pages"was like the first or second song launched at the Jam.

Here's the link

Woody, yeah the wind was nasty and took down the patio umbrella a time or two. :( Luckily no Ricks were involved :shock: with the patio umbrella fiasco !! On the other hand, the wind kept us from roasting alive, as temperatures really heated up last weekend.

It was great to see everyone and get all those Ricks clanking and jangling. And Jonathan's two sons, (4 year-old and 4 month-old) attended their first Rickenbacker Confluence !!

And here's another picture from the Jam that Joey had posted on fb
