yeah great ! and either there is a secret FB page, either it totally does not answer my question, Cheryl ! "You've' heard us do Blue Oyster Cult hit songs before, fun stuff!! Now come hear the man who wrote them perform with us.. We are proud to have Buck Dharma come back and experience the Regs show again with our friends August 16th at Gilbert's Resort Key Largo.."
The Regs show was fun. I played "Hot Legs" with Carmine Appice, then played with the Regs, doing Burnin', Zilla, Reap and Buck's and also Reelin' In the Years, La Grange, Brown Sugar and other covers. Too hot to play outdoors in FL tho. Soaked to the skin in Ft. Lauderdale and Key Largo.

Hmmm... I wonder who 'wins' the beat the heat award here...
My double-header gig last weekend was at a winery in Livermore, CA. We were outdoors under a trellis. Showtime between the hours of 12-4pm. By the time set #3 rolled around, my side of the stage gave me the distinct honor of standing in 70% full sun.
Saturday's High: 99° Sunday's High: 104°
Thank goodness I brought Steinbergers for the gig instead of an all-wood guitar! Even the Steinberger tuning balked at those temperatures. The strings felt loosie-goosie. And that black polycarbonite neck, once it got the blazin' sun on it, got hot, too! At the end of the gig, after I packed all my stuff, there was a cooler they'd been keeping wine in full of half-melted ice. I dunked my head in it. It kinda hurt, but also felt really, really good. :-)
The heat has been fun around here too. Wearing a full spray suit and 96 in the shop is a portable sauna, and trying to not sweat on the work ... fun fun. I can't imagine trying to play a guitar in the hot and humid conditions. Yuk.
