JULY 16, SATURDAY
We went to Antioch, Illinois, for their Taste of Summer festival. Jimmy Sohns and the Shadows of Knight were playing from noon to 2. It was Jim's first time performing after suffering a bad stroke back in April. Of course, they are best known for their 1966 song "Gloria" which went to #10 on Billboard. It was a real trip back.
However, the hot sun and warm temperatures beat us down so bad, we decided not to go to The Grove for the Blues Jam right after it.
Later that evening, we went to Sunnyside.
JULY 17, SUNDAY
After listening to Bob Stroud's Rock and Roll Roots, we went to Hickory Lodge in McCullom Lake for their great pizza and beer special. Then, we went to Sunnyside.
Came home and I got to enjoy sitting out in the gazebo.
