We’ve been back home in Costa Rica for a while now, and have been very busy.
Before we flew back to Costa Rica the first week of March, we met with some friends at a Cracker Barrel for lunch. While waiting for them to arrive, I took out my banjo and sat in one of the rockers and played. That turned out to be a great way to draw a crowd and meet some very nice people.

Well, my last Concert in Grecia went well, and a lot of my friends were able to come out to it, including Pablo Ortiz(link opens in new browser window), who I invited up to play with me for the close of the Concert. It was truly a grand finale!
We had such a great time that we are now planning to do more Concerts together in near future. I am also planning to start hosting Guitar Competitions in conjunction with our Concerts, and Continue reading “BIT-31”
First of all I am sure that you all have heard about the devastating earthquake here in Costa Rica… It was one of only two times that we got outside the house because it got that bad! Continue reading “BIT-30”
Well, hello again, I’ll keep this a short BIT. I’m writing this from Costa Rica… before we left Panama last week I was busier than a one handed guitarist! Between playing last minute gigs, getting packed and closing everything down, and the fun is just about to begin! We’ll be flying back to the States next week to start the tour!
Not much happening here since my last BIT… We’ve been pretty busy with visitors from the States so I’ve not had the time for practice or for doing gigs lately. Also my mom got pretty sick here, and between trying to take care of her, until the doctor could stabilize her so my dad and I could send her back stateside to recover and get the care she needs with some great friends of ours. She’s doing much better now, Thank God!
Dad had a guy from Texas come down on a mission trip for 3 weeks. So dad was pretty busy getting Chris around and I was taking care of my mom. While Chris was here we also met Continue reading “BIT-12”
Greetings from Panama! Since my last post my parents and I had a nice visit to Costa Rica for about a week. I got to meet a guy, Gary, who was the drummer for the Turtles! Remember their hit…”Happy Together”?
Of course, he said that hit happened 3 years after he had left the group… bad timing! 🙂 It was still pretty cool to meet him. It was also nice to see so many of our friends again. It was a really nice visit.
Well hello again… I hope you’ve all been having as good a time as I’ve had!
I did an opening concert on Dec. 29th in the now being remodelled Boquete Community Theatre in Boquete. The Boquete Community Players (BCP) leased the space and plan to renovate it and build a stage, etc. so that the community of Boquete can have theatrical, musical and cultural productions and events in an appropriate atmosphere. The work on this project is really coming along!
I also had the opportunity to play for a group of dignitaries at the Inauguration of the 35th Coffee & Flower Festival in Continue reading “BIT-9”
