Charlie Fest – Chuck’s 50th Birthday Party

 

Whew! We lived through Charlie Fest 50! AKA Chuck’s 50th Birthday Party.

We all knew Chuck would entertain us and he did not disappoint. He warned us and even sent email messages suggesting we clear our calendars. In the wee hours of April 3rd, Chuck emailed us an outline of the week’s activities for his birthday celebration.

Are you tired yet?

I was but Chuck was just getting warmed up.  On Thursday, April 10th was the LullWater Show at the Blind Pig and on Friday, April 11th, his actual birthday, Fuzz Fest at Woodruffs.  

Finally the… 

Party!!!

Chuck wanted a party for his friends. The criteria for the location:

  1. Must serve Michigan Beer
  2. Plenty of room for a band
  3. Good food

With a little luck  a room was reserved at SideTrack in Ypsilanti’s Depot Town. Chuck booked  Laith Al Saadi to play a few sets of music.

If you’d like to hear more from Laith, Debbi’s recording of Chuck dancing to the “Whipping Post” was most entertaining….

Party!
