Hey there friends, BJ here.

Hope you all had a great week and welcome to the weekend with BJ’s “Where, When and What’s”  happening

My week was pretty good. On Monday I got to meet the man that stole my youngest daughter’s heart and is on the way to becoming my son in law.  He’s from Nashville and was in Washington for the Washington State fair.  He travels with the country band “Florida Georgia Line” as their videographer. By the way, they put on a great concert!  Very talented and handsome men, not to mention so real and down to earth. And although I couldn’t bring my camera into the concert, I was a guest on this outing, I did get a cell phone shot or two to share with you. My suggestion: if you ever get a chance, go see Florida Georgia Line in concert, you will leave there with a smile on your face. A little tip from me to you: I hear they are slated to play next years Cape Blanco Music Festival. worth watching for the dates and  planning a “Cruise” on over to the Oregon coast.

Now onto this weekends “Where, when and what”

I want to start off this weekends 3 W’s by letting all of you know that this Saturday the 20th is the Memorial (Celebration of Life) for our dear friend and local band member Alex Gonzalez Arguinzoni(Toyz).  Alex did not want a funeral, instead he wanted everyone to gather together, have a party and play some music in his honor.  Alex will be getting what he wanted, a real party for Alex! Bring a guitar or bass and come and join us in saying good bye at Walt’s Pourhouse 1880 N. 7th. St. Coos Bay, Oregon at 3:00 pm.

If you’re feeling a little bit country this weekend, you can put on your cowboy boots and scoot on over to The Mohawk on Mohawk Blvd. and kick it with the guys of Haywire!
