Thanks to everyone who entered our Peach Festival ticket giveaway. Lots of great entries, some really cool stories and a few things that made us laugh.
Our winner is…Duffy B. Here’s his entry:
Hey Trigger hippies…I’m a fifty yr. old fan that has yet to catch you guys live but dying to do so. I’ve seen Jackie many times and recently saw him with Phil and the boys @Vibes. My wife and I have been taking our two boys to shows since they were little guys and we have had a great Summer so far. The problem is between ticket prices and all the other expenses that go with it we are pretty tapped for doing any more shows any time soon. We work really hard to pay the bills and try and have some fun money too. I’m a carpenter for N.Y. State Parks and my wife works two jobs to make it all happen. I guess in my long winded speal ( Jackie can relate to this LOL!) the only way we are probably going to the fest is if some tickets fell out of the sky so to speak. I know this isn’t the most creative rant, but I think it speaks of the times we are in and I would be so appreciative to win the tickets and help complete an already great Summer!
Thanks for listening, Duffy & family
Again, thanks to all who entered. We’ll see you at the Peach and in Westhampton Beach and Washington DC this weekend!
First things first – Grand Targhee was a blast! What a great night and what a great crowd! Thanks so much to all of you that made it out and made us feel so welcome.
We have a few shows in August that we’re very excited about. The Peach Festival is gonna be great – we’ll spend the day catching up with a lot of friends, old and new, and then we get to play a gig. Can’t beat a day like that.
Since we want you in on the fun, we’ve got a pair of 3 day passes to The Peach Festival to give away. To enter, simply email us why you want to join us in Scranton on August 10th. You can talk about peaches, Michael Scott, Montage Mountain, the Allmans or whatever you like. Creativity counts. We might share your entry on Facebook and Twitter so beware. We will pick a winner on August 6th so the contest lasts exactly one week.
Email us your entry now to email@example.com or post a comment below. Good luck and we hope to see you at The Peach Festival!
Looking past Scranton, Westhampton and Washington DC to follow means we plan to have an all around banger of a weekend. It’s not the full on Northeastern onslaught that we know a lot of you (ourselves included!) are hoping for…..let’s just call this an appetizer weekend.
Has anyone seen or heard from Jackie? If you do, remind him about the upcoming gigs……we’re gonna need him!
And finally, Steve Gorman Sports! is now airing live in the afternoons from 2:00 – 3:00 PM Central time. You can stream it live:
I have been asked by Levon Helm’s family to sing at his funeral service Friday. I know many of you are fans of Levon and can understand how honored I am by this request. Unfortunately, there are no flights to get me back to Chattanooga in time for Trigger Hippy’s show tomorrow. While I will not be at Rhythm & Brews Friday night, you will be in the capable hands of Steve, Jackie, Will and Nicky G. They’ll take good care of you.
I apologize to those of you who were hoping to see Trigger Hippy’s full lineup, and I hope you know that only a special circumstance like this would cause me to cancel.
Please send your prayers to Levon’s family. And, Chattanooga I will see you next time we come thru…
You’ll notice a couple more festivals have been added and there are plenty more dates soon to follow as well.
If you can’t make any of the shows, maybe our first free download will ease your pain – we’ll have it up after the weekend. Stay tuned for the where and the how and join our newsletter (look left) for even more immediate notification.
