Last night at the Destination Blues Listening Room, a monthly event sponsored by The Exchange in Bloomsburg, PA, Clarence Spady banged out a tune on the license plate guitar I built and donated for a raffle. It was dramatically untuned after being fooled with for a couple of months, but he found music in it. It was a blast seeing an instrument I built in the hands of such a talented musician! I hope the winner of the raffle enjoys the instrument too. It was autographed by the members of Cabinet and features their logo on the headstock with permission (you can't see it in the photo, but I've posted it before). 

Takeaways: 

1. If you've never heard Clarence Spady, you should. I don't intend to miss him again if he's playing anywhere I can get to. Great player, singer, and entertainer.

2. If you're in or near Northeastern PA, check out Destination Blues! Good music for bargain dollars. The monthly Listening Rooms are $5 suggested donation, super intimate, and BYOB.

3. I like donating stuff I build--but my wife says I need to start letting people pay me once in a while. 

Here's a picture of Clarence Spady playing the instrument. Photo by Oren B. Helbok.
