WOODSTOCK IN PUERTO V?

It was August 15, 1969. Just one week before my 18th birthday. My friends' dad had agreed to lend us his car, and a small group of us were ready to hit the road for the 8 - 10 hour trip across NY State to spend the weekend in the Catskill Mountains countryside with what turned out to be about 400,000 other young people for what had been billed as an Aquarian Exposition and seemed sure to be the biggest music event of our lifetimes. By a long shot! My mom had said, "You're not 18 yet - you're not going," but I'm sure you can easily imagine my reply.

So yes, it's a bit late - we were delayed almost a month by a bad case of flu that hit me just before the actual anniversary date so that we had to postpone this show. But being a Woodstock veteran still carrying the memories of what a life changing experience that incredible weekend was for me personally, I am compelled to go ahead with this: a full evening of music that was played on those 4 music history making days by some of the top artists of the day - a virtual blues/rock, folk and funk guitar extravaganza, to be sure. More details on the CALENDAR page!
