Another Back Yard Ricken Jam and BBQ

Postby (8mileshigher) » Mon Sep 18, 2017 4:32 pm

Some friends brought over an arsenal of amplifiers and Rickenbackers and their assorted talents :) so we had a BBQ and Rickenbacker jam session and a lot of fun singing old favorite songs .... nice way to spend a September afternoon in Southern Calif.

in addition to a few pictures I took, I would like to thank Diane, Lori, Nick and Frank for pictures they posted on Facebook which I poached for this thread. Some of the pictures of the backline of amps and guitars on stands are similar.

Batch 1:

Joey had just finished helping with the P.A. set-up and was contemplating the quiet moment before all those amps were fired up ...
