What an insane time and what a 2020 we went through , My heart goes out to so many wonderful people that are gone . I am so sorry for their friends and families .It's been dark but Lots of light now coming through.
I'm back to playing a full schedule here in the Keys at some very cool places some famous Duval Street joints and some hidden gems on the water that I couldn't even find . lol .. I love it here . The Sunset Tiki at the Galleon resort is open and I'm back on Monday night' s I am playing Tuesdays at Schooner . 1-5 again and at Kikis Sandbar on Sunday afternoons . little torch key MM 28.5 its a great place on the beach plenty of space . Love it there and the people are great .
I will continue to live stream on Facebook but no set schedule on that . when the moment strikes I guess ,.Thanks for your encouragement on the live streaming .
the Hemptones ? Why not , I've assembled a Cracker Jack band of rag tag berth makers and we are playing out at Scottys Front street stage , Schooner Wharf bar , Kikis , Blue Heaven . It's Fun , it's Aloha Steve Gregg Shanle Bob Jeager (sometimes ) and Tom Conger , when he remembers .lol scroll down this page for dates .
The Happy Dog band has been so much fun for me . The band is taking a little break Jesse and I will play when we can and the band gets back together in New York early August .
I have had both shots now and feel so relieved but not bulletproof ,This summer I am planning to get out and play I'll be on the GTFOH tour so if you want me to come to your town P M me on F B . venues you think are cool but I also want to play house ? yard lawn parties / Concerts . small gatherings with perhaps a jam after . much more fun for everyone .
Please scroll down this page for schedule or go to shows for a click on calendar .
Crazy times for sure . Please stay safe , be aware . let's work together Mask up , Distance & wash
Thank you all , Much love and Respect
Gary Hempsey & Jesse Wagner
