Hello fellow NESMANS. Greetings and Salutations!!
The Dick Dale show at The Iron Horse Music Hall in
Northampton, MA went as follows:
NESMA's very own SPF-4 took the stage, to warm the crowd up
for DD himself, and ROCKED the house!!!!!!!!
The group was so tight, I was very impressed. I didn't
think it was possible, but, they get better every time I see
It was so great to see Dave, Rob, Tony and Craig again. I
was so flattered and honored that they even remembered me.
When they dedicated the song "Cruiser" to me at the end of
their set, I was really touched. Thanks guys, I hope to see
you all very soon. Keep Rockin'!!!
DD took the stage, playing from the sidewalk outside, and
shredded as usual. He was in great form, and was in a very
chatty mood. He yapped a lot more than usual, but, it
didn't seem to take anything away from his show. In fact
not only did he play all the standards, he managed to sneak
in a few I haven't heard in a while. 70 years old and still
History was made that evening, as it was the very first time
my children got to meet the man himself. The event brought
a tear to my eye after an 11 year friendship with DD.
Peace, Love & Surf
