Just a heads-up:  Spyner's has live music on Thursday nights in the back room, and two bands booked for 8/21.

You must be thinking of someplace else, John (Quenchers?) I just called. Spyners opens at 11 and Karaoke starts at 9:30. They're expecting us on the 21st and hadn't heard about Dan. And don't know anything about live bands. I think there's a side room but there's definitely no back room.

Brass Band Festival (2 bands) same night at 7:30pm. I just called.  

The brass bands are on one side of the bar, and supposedly end at 9:30pm so that the Karaoke can start on the other side. 


Should be fun!

I called again. Maureen is not there, I spoke to Irma again. She's dead certain that the bands are playing tomorrow night and that there's nothing on the 21st.

I'm still in shock.

I'm going on record to say Dan was an amazing soul and will be missed. He helped me set up the sound system at Bike to Brew, I had seen him at Tour de Fat recently too. He also marked the route, ride marshalled, helped get the party ready and then partied it up. He won our Levi's raffle and he hugged me with a big smile on his face. 

While we were setting up the sound a group of young Christian women approached and asked us if we knew Jesus. Dan talked to them about god and his approach to worship. So passionate, personal and inspiring. What an amazing dude! Good thoughts to you and your family, Dan. My next ride's for you.

Is a get together for Dan set for tonight.

Yes, next Thursday, August 21st.  Get ready to do karaoke, one of his favorite hobbies along with biking, sailing, drinking, and socializing.

Well said. He was great to work with at events, always positive. He will definitely be missed.

If anyone wants to attend his funeral service send me a message.  It is on Sunday the 17th at 2pm.

Dan was a co-worker at CME and last spring offered a place on his shared boat to my wife and I. Many mornings I saw Dan at the gym after his ride into work. He was generous, funny and defiant. My sympathies go out to all of Dan's friends and family.
