Waterstock IV: Peace, Love, Music, Boats, Babes & BBQ!

Waterstock IV: Peace, Love, Music, Boats, Babes & BBQ!

This weekend is Labor Day and that means one thing around here and that's the annual Waterstock Festival. Tim my partner in crime owns the most popular summer spot around here and that's Tim's Rivershore Crabhouse on the banks of the Potomac River. [Good pick for a partner huh? lol]

He/they/I build a huge stage just off shore on a barge where we have a PA set up towards the land and another aimed at the boaters. For three days we shuttle bands back and forth and have about 6-8 bands a day for 3 solid days of FREE music and entertainmant. This draws thousands and thousands of boaters to come out and anchor around the stage barge and well get fricking crazy like boaters do.

Again this year I will be the Host and MC all three days and can't wait! This is the most fun part on my year. The bands are all cool and great sounding and the people are awesome. I love having the microphone for three days jacking with people.

If you are close enough to come up I sure recommend it.

Here is Tim's site I built him a couple years back. They manage conten these days.

Here's is the cool flyer

Here I am with my Partner Tim on the mic.

Hey, here's my lovely wife Michele on the right. That is where we hung out on the stage for three days. Front Row Boy!

Here is Tim's place before a lot of people got there and my view when looking towards land. I'll have sea legs after three days on that rocking bastage.

This event will be off the hook!
Just in from Tims where the crew is building the stage platform on the barge and containers and plans are coming together great.

I get an air cannon to shoot T-shirts! How fricking cool is that?

But I also have to run [2] Pits down there cooking Ribs and Chicken for 3 Days as well as Be the MC and Host the event. Man this is gonna be game on!

I done been asked to sit in with 2 bands so far and will do solo sets at least 2 of the 3 days. Man I can't wait and it all starts tonight when I start 16 Butts for the VFD party.

And........we're off!

Pics and videos as they come in. I will be back down tomorrow to see how the stage turned out.

Today is the Day!
Wooohoooo!

I do have to go shopping and some cooking for tomorrow first but at Noon I'm off to the water and the stage barge till about 9pm tonight.
Should be most excellent!

When some of the bands are playing I will shuttle boat back to the shore and meet and greet folks as well as fire up the 3rd smoker with Ribs and chicken halves I think. I never know what Timmy will have for me to cook. Iron Pirate Chef!

I'll shoot some short clips and make a video so you can check out the fun.

Now, where's that air cannon for shooting t-shirts?

Oh I got a water ballon launcher that will go 200' too!

lol

I did that yesterday after being up since 5am cooking for the 200 Firefighters.
lol
Yesterday was a LONG day.
Today I have my bathing suit on and will go back, introduce the bands and go hang with the groovy boat people.
Crack some pops today too. That barge is a DRY County boy and we ain't allowed to have pops out there. Yeah, you seen this Pirate snuck a few out there till fricking Kenny found them.

I ma have to call JB on the phone and get him to do a live Speakerphone shout out to all the Waterstock folks. He can tell them to Pay Attention Boy! lol
