First name? (optional, of course):
Where from?: Currently Jacksonville, FL. Grew up in OH. I’ve also lived in TX and CO
Male/Female?: Male
Been to Wanee before?: 2010
What do you do for a living?: Write to live, telephone customer service to pay the bills

and most importantly, music:
Play any instruments?: No
Favorite bands/artists?: So, so many- for live music this past decade I’m always happy if Warren Haynes, Les Claypool, Steve Molitz, Phil Lesh, Derek Trucks, or Robert Randolph is on stage.
Looking at the track counts in my mp3 player- the largest collections are Grateful Dead, Phish, Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic, Tom Waits, Prince, King Crimson, P-Funk, Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, ZZ Top… and then a bunch of alt rock and metal of the 80s and 90s

Finally, what is it about music that brought you here?: Live music is Church. Improvisation based around traditional American music types (blues, jazz, funk, rock) is the most satisfying church music. I also enjoy the practices of other denominations, and can easily find the spirit at a Lollapalooza or Ozzfest

Since we're all like-minded and friendly folks (plus I'd like to see a little more activity on the board), let's do one of those tell-us-about-yourself threads.

**Thanks for cranking this up again Mike**

First name?: Doug and Mrs. WL giggles if you call her Christine
Where from?: Orlando but we are in Jacksonville, Fl for a while now
Male/Female?:Yes
Been to Wanee before?: All except 05'
What do you do for a living?: A little of this, and a little of that. Mrs WL enjoys getting up in the morning and smiling at co-workers at an engineering company. And they pay her to do other critical things too but she would do it for free if possible.

and most importantly, music:
Play any instruments?: Keyboard - since childhood. I bought a really expensive Ovation guitar a few years back hoping that the investment would "encourage" me to learn to play but it hasn't. Right now I just crank up a video of David Gilmour or Warren, turn it up loud and strum away like I am on stage as a backup or something. Maybe one day I'll get serious and learn to play.
Favorite bands/artists?: Too many to list but pretty much all with one or two exceptions.
Finally, what is it about music that brought you here?: I like long walks in the SOSMP park and it just so happens that there is a hippie fest going on my favorite week of the year to do it.



We all had a bunch of fun with this thread in 09 and since there are so many new Bros and Sis's coming on board I thought it might be fun to start it up again.

:D


A BIG welcome to all of the new folks and please jump right in and make yourselves at home. There is more to come and you won't be sorry for being a part of this wonderful forum and fest. Wanee On!!

We ran into your mom at the Halloween show. She is sooooo nice.

Rita went to the bathroom and I was holding her drink. I stood there waiting and waiting....

Finally she comes out with your mom and they are yapping away. I asked if there was a big line and they said NO, they were just talking in there!!!!

Anyways, can't wait to see you guys again.
