Upcoming Gigs

It's a good idea to check on this website periodically if you are planning on attending any of these events because changes do happen periodically and I, Ken, don't seem to live in the same time continuum as most people. I often dont know what time, date, day or year it is and Jeanie needs to periodically check this site to make sure it is accurate. Thank you.
