I thought rather than a walk around Coupeville this morning I’d share with you what I did yesterday!

I play drums in the big swing band, “The Tempos”. The group that has been around since the mid 1950’s. I’ve only been with them for the past 42 years, how’s that for a commitment? We performed for the nice folks that visited the Hiram Chittenden Locks in Ballard, WA. It’s a wonderful venue and we had a great, appreciative, audience. It’s fun to watch the hundreds of people that stop and listen to a song or two while walking to and from the locks. They come from all over the world as the locks are a huge tourist site.

Here are some photos of the band, I hope you enjoy looking at them and sharing the day with me.

This is a panorama my sister took.


Here’s a little closer shot of the group.


This is our singer Diane.


The Trombone section.






Ron on bass and me on drums.


It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. This was the eighteenth year we’ve played for these fine folks and we plan to do it again next year.

Have a great week ahead and I’ll see you again soon.
