Well it was Saturday night and the Marina was swinging to the sounds of some fabulous musicians.

Every Sat night, Gary Diamond has arranged for local musicians to sit and jam under the Tiki Hut.  We have some seriously talented people staying here at the City Marina.

Gary is in his 70s and is still playing professionally back home in the Spring, Summer and Fall.
He plays a Yamaha keyboard and has a great voice.

Valerie is on a 60 plus foot Fleming cruiser and jams with her husband Ray.  She sings about 5 songs a night and has a very nice alto voice.

Here is a picture of Gayle and Don, not the Hromys but another Gayle and Don.

They are staying here in Marathon for the winter. 

One of the best musicians is Ken Parson, sister of Kathy Parsons who we sailed with two years ago. In fact Kathy and Bill led the group out of Marathon over to Bimini. Key lives in Houston, TX where he was an audio  engineer, musicians, composer and a lot of other aspects of the music business. He plays a fabulous piano/keyboard.

Here is a group shoot of the Boot Key Jammers

And here is a picture of the local conga line working its way through the crowd

Back of head shots, but that is Joy in white, Barb in blue and Bob behind Barb.

Saturday night is great fun and it is free.


ps  Superbowl update - congrats to the Frankos, winning third quarter and final score in their Superbowl party in Banana Bay. We got to spend time with them on Sunday, but did not win any money.
