Itís not like June came and went and I was under a rock, but I started out early in month taking some time for me to just ride, took a break from that to do a cub scout thing, then in the end just stayed close to home doing stuff.
The early rides I took were not to planned biker events, but performances by bands in places where bikers frequent. I spent some afternoon time at Fox Crossing where the Still Willis Band performed and then partied into the night at the County Line Bar where the Stryke Band played.
Still Willis was a band we first saw play over in Lake Panasoffkee at the Law Dogs Wounded Veterans Benefit Weekend in the Dam Pub. This band, and I mean every member of the band, are top notch musicians. If you like Blues and Classic Rock, this is a band you should go see.
I spent some time with Charlie McGraw from WIND-FM and Judy. You can catch whatís happening in and around North Central Florida on Charlies blog over at WIND-FM. The Chrome Divas were at the Fox Crossing too and as always a pleasure to visit with.
Over at the County Line I ran into the Stryke Band. This band is rock and roll and gives off all the energy needed to support a rock performance. The music they cover is played on the money and itís not just music, there is a lot going on up on the stage. Youíll find it hard to not get up and dance with Stryke Band.
Tugs was at the BitterWheat Benefit at the Red House in Leesburg. Perhaps we can get some photos out of them too? Check the thread about the benefit for Tugs' wrap up comments.
So the next weekend brings us to July and there are a few things going on over the next two weeks or so you might want to check out.
