This was my first year "out on the street" at Oktoberfest, being stationed at the corner of La Mesa & Palm.
I have to admit, It was so much fun for me as I have been located in the beer garden area and never got to see what happens on the streets. I loved seeing all the people passing by and as I played music from the 50's thru the 90's as well as German music everyone seemed to enjoy this. I could see people walking by and suddenly start "movin' & groovin'" to the music was a…Continue

Well, after three great days of Octoberfesting the shows this year were great! I again "hosted" the main stage in the beer garden for the Chamber and all went very very well.
It's always fun to see so many good people come out in their "German" outfits and have a great time. Our German bands were excellent during the day, and those "Cartoon Dogs" just rocked the house on Friday & Saturday nights.
It appears that when I go on stage with the band on Friday & Saturday…Continue
