RGC Celebrating it's Fifth Anniversary!


RGC 2006 - 2011!

♪ Our first meetings were held at Bernie Lehmann’s guitar studio beginning in October 2006 and continuing into early 2007. Bernie, who has been a member ever since was also in attendance at our celebration last night at Towpath Café.

It was good to see some of the original members as well as some new faces. We took turns playing Christmas songs and other melodies in our usual Round Robin fashion. Some of the songs played had been recorded by cable TV for the Music Show in 2010 and were included on a DVD given away as a door prize.

The music was interspersed with talk of what the club has been doing as well as what’s going on today. There were also door prizes including CD’s, DVD’s, and a subscription to “Acoustic Guitar Magazine.” We welcomed several new members and everyone enjoyed the music, the camaraderie and the pleasant atmosphere at Towpath Café on the canal.

...and here’s the play list for the evening:
