Many thanks to all of you who came to celebrate Willie T & Doctor X’s 50th Anniversary show and celebration! Who knew that a couple of high school kids would forge a bond over their love of music that would propel them on a journey that still continues 50 years after their first gig in November, 1967! Looking out from the stage, I was simply blown away at the sight of over 100 friends, fans and family, some of whom traveled a great distance to be there! It was a night I’ll never forget, and Doctor X and I will cherish the memory of it always!
The Sons of Italy hall in Winchester was filled with over 120 fans, friends, and family, and the room was bedecked and bedazzled. We had a wonderful BBQ from Redbones, and gourmet cookies from Lakota Bakery. Doctor X and I performed two hour-long sets. For the second set our old pal and fabulous bassist, Gary Jenkins, joined us onstage! We’ve made a lot of great music with Gary over the years, both in the studio and onstage, and it was so much fun to be performing with him again.
A big shoutout to Linda Doucette and Margo Attaya for working so hard all night to capture this event on video! Thanks also to WinCAM for sending them to us. After they do some editing, our performance will be broadcast on Winchester Community Access TV! We'll put a link on our website as well.
Many thanks to Mary Ellen and Steve for sponsoring us for the venue, and to my wonderful wife Jacki, and my son Daniel, and my amazing friend, Cindy, for all their help with set-up and decorations, memorabilia, and more! We could not have done this without them. I hope you all had fun, and enjoyed the food and the music, and great company. We sure did. It was pure magic!
