It will be hard to top the crowd we saw at Froggie’s Cantina By The Bay last week, but we’d sure like to try! We’ll be in Norfolk tonight at The Thirsty Camel beginning at 8 pm. Friday night we return to Jerry’s Restaurant and Pub on the Norfolk/Chesapeake border from 9 to 12. Two great venues to wrap things up before we take a couple of weeks off.
Music this week kicks off with Michael and Robbie House at the Norfolk Yacht Club, Wednesday from 6-9 pm. On Friday the full band will be at Mario’s in Portsmouth, and on Saturday we return to Froggie’s Cantina in Va. Beach.
Another incredible night at Froggie’s Cantina in VB – packed house, and a guest set from Mechelle Herrington featuring songs from Fleetwood Mac, The Motels and Gov’t Mule. It was nice to have all of the Baddadz back in the saddle. We’re off until the last day of the month, May 31, when we’ll return to The Eagle’s Nest at 3 p.m. for the Sunday cookout.
The Baddadz made the transition from Robbie back to Johnny B over the weekend, resulting in a lot of chord changes/harmonies to remember! It was great to have JB back, and we settled into our old sound quickly. An amazing turnout from our friends at The Eagle’s Nest yesterday, thank you all for being there!

We said a heartfelt thanks and goodbye for now to Robbie House on Friday night, I know that we’ll see him again in the future and we look forward to having him sit in with us. Another thing that changed with us is Loyd Bohlinger. Loyd came and set in with us just a few gigs after Robbie stepped in, and he made an amazing difference to the sound. Loyd will be joining us for most gigs in the future, and we’re thrilled to work with him. Last but absolutely not least, Johnny Bland returns to us full time, starting today at 3 p.m. at The Eagle’s Nest. It’s hard to believe four months has passed by, but we’re thrilled to have him back with us!
Johnny Bland rejoined us yesterday for the Kim Abbott benefit at Jerry’s, followed by a set from Robbie House. That’s sort of what we have in store for this week, as Robbie plays his final gig with us at Stan’s Bistro on Friday April 24 at 8 pm. Saturday I’ll be playing solo at Sunset Grill from 7-10pm, and then Johnny will play his first gig back with us on Sunday as we open the patio at The Eagle’s Nest from 3-7pm.
