Sounds like a can't miss if you are in town.
The party was great and as a favor for Captain Dave, i filmed the whole thing and have made it into a double-DVD ! 28 songs, over 2 hours of video and still shots. (see below)



I am mailing a copy to Captain Dave in Tennessee tomorrow.
Guest musicians who played that night included Chris Bolister, Barefoot Skinny, Johnny Soda, and of course JJ and his excellent band were there holding the whole thing together.

If anyone would like a copy please just Private Message me etc. or pop down Bad Boys anytime - the bar staff will point me out.

Of course we have all of our fingers crossed Captain Dave continues responding well to his chemo treatment. He's due back in town Feb 13th..

I saw an article on Yahoo about a captain captured by pirates who are holding him (and others, I think) for ransom. He escaped and was recaptured. Please pray for the hostages and the pirates. Thanks.

Dear friends, Captain Dave passed on last night. Please send your prayers to his family. Playa has lost a true legend and a gentleman and will always be just a little less colorful for his absense. RIP.

Prayers have been said and sent.
I'm just going to sit here for a while and absorb this sad, sad news.

I can't believe how quickly it happened. So very sad. My thoughts and prayers to his family and all who were his friends.

Dave was truly one of the most wonderful men I've ever had the pleasure to spend time with. I will miss his stories. Prayers for his family and his Playa family. He loved his employees so much.

Awww...

I didn't really know him, except by sight, but I know he will be missed by so many. I'm sorry.

I am visualizing Captain Dave swashbuckling his way to Heaven's Gate. So many happy memories his friends have to treasure.
