Wow! That was awesome.

Anyone have any pics of Fista's debut with the band?

Amy took a bunch just waiting for her to send them to me......that was the funniest/best shit I've ever seen to date at a show!

She's definitely got the best guitar face I've ever seen....

Hopefully I can visit her in Brazil too.

That was the funnies/best shit I've ever been a part of at a show!! I think it was both the highlight and the low point of my career thus far.

I walked in to the Boathouse 5 minutes before Fista's guitar playing adventure. She was dancing up front, and Big Gilson came out onto the dance floor and got her to start strumming on his guitar in time with the band. That was lots of fun, but only the beginning. He then strapped his guitar onto Fista, and standing right behind her, he had her jamming and playing lead guitar with the band. He then proceeded to walk her to the back of the Boathouse, out the back door and around the building, and all this time Fista (with Big Gilson's help) was wailing on the guitar and jamming with the band. There were huge smiles everywhere as Fista and Big Gilson finally walked in through the front door, guitar-a-blazing and totally in synch with the band. What a blast! Hopefully some pictures will surface soon!

Bravo to Fista for going with the flow and shredding on guitar in a big way! Fista rocks!!

Peace, Mark

thanks to all you KW kids who came out to see the Big G. He definately was thrilled with the enthusiasm of the crowd. We will be doing the whole thing again next year. Hopefully we layed some groundwork this year for next year to be a even bigger success. Thanks to everybody who came out to all the shows, it was a very cool couple of weeks,

Ryan
