6 Hour Show in Finland

Vince Gordon and his band The Jime ends its 2002 tour in Paradise Garden in Salo, Finland. The Jime is the headline band. The excited audience cannot have enough of the music and Vince and his band are called back on stage again and again. The concert ends up lasting six hours!

Tribute to Waylon Jennings

 I bought a CD with Waylon Jennings on the day he died not knowing he had died. It was a strange coincidence. I listened to his version of “Don’t Think Twice – I’ts Alright” about 50 times in a row and because it made such an impression on me I decided to put a link to him on our website. I looked for his homepage through a search engine and THEN I found out he just died. It was late in the evening but I called Kris and two other friends. We went to almost every bar in town telling the bartenders we’d all be buying Jack Daniels if they’d put the CD on. All of them did. Man, Waylon was different. I just had to do a rockabilly version of the song.
