Gigolos Pig Out!!

Tabblo: ZOOfotos - Tijuana Gigolos - 10/18/2008

The Gigolos came to the ZOO to have a little party; and as usual, a crowd of their friends stopped by to help out. We had a big pig roast out at Marty and Rachael's place the night before, so I thought people might be a bit burned out. Nope! ... See my Tabblo>

The Bel Airs

We like these guys much better than those other guys from Missouri. The Tigers took away something, but the Bel Airs brought some fine music, so let's all just dance and forget all about that football stuff.

Full Tilt

Tabblo: Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials 10-3-2008

Lil' Ed and the boys were back in town to release their new CD, Full Tilt. They sure put on a full tilt show. The place was hoppin' from the first note to the last. As you can see by that old poster pasted up on the wall Ed has been rockin' the ZOO for awhile now, but we always love to have him back. If you missed the show, you better run right out and get a copy of the CD!!

Tabblo: ZOOfotos -:- Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash 9/15/2008

Always a good time when BSOJC comes to town. These are some fine upstanding country gentlemen. Why a couple of them even helped old Deuce out by holding him up when he got a little too liquored up to stand up on his own. I'm just joshing of course. In reality, he was so high that they had to hold him down to keep him from floating away. I guess I pick on old Deuce too much, but he's a hell of a good guy and real fun to talk to. If there's nothing else going on, talking to Deuce is likely to keep you enteretained.

If you got a jones for some more BSOJC stuff you can check out their sites:

An extraordinary musical talent! She played everything but the beer taps behind the bar, and she probably could have gotten some sweet notes from them if we'd got them onto the stage for her. Sings so fine she makes crickets all come out of the walls to listen. One hell of a time.
