2011: THE GROOVY YEAR IN REVIEW

Sam's Burger Joint and Music Hall...my home away from home.

Over 80 live music shows in 2011…about one show every 4 days. Wow!

When I started compiling this list I never dreamed it would be this extensive. There are even a few shows that aren’t listed here because…gasp! I didn’t have a camera with me!

THE ST LOUIS BLUES, TEXAS STYLE

Mike Zito plays at Sam's Burger Joint Nov. 25, 2011. He opened for Bugs Henderson in an evening
presented by the San Antonio Blues Society.


Wherever I travel, as soon as I meet someone from my hometown I ask them:
“Where’d you go to high school?”
I never even thought about the question; it just came naturally, like my love of the St. Louis Cardinals
A former boss once asked me: “What is it with this strange obsession you have with high schools?”
