    Default Sammy at Tahoe May 7/8

    Hey everyone!

    Just have to say that my friends and I had a fantastic time this weekend as we were able to get into both shows in Tahoe. Friday was a great show but Saturday turned into a VH/Sammy geek dream evening. A good friend of ours hooked us up with apps and drinks with the Cabo rep from Vegas and before we knew it we were back stage in a meet and greet with Sammy. Pretty damned cool!! Shortly after that I ran into his son Aaron and spoke with him for a few moments. Really nice guy. During the concert Mikey came out and played on all of the VH tunes and Sexy Little Thing(he was absent for Friday's show). And after the show we ran into Mona at Fatburger(the best post concert/drinking food ever!). She was really gracious and talked with us for a bit.

    Good stuff!!

    Oh, BTW, Chickenfoot should be playing Tahoe in September!!

    That's pretty cool to hear. I've seen Sammy there three times. Great times for sure. Was able to meet Michael Anthony late night after a show in one of the restaurants. Also met Kevin Dugan a few times. The most recent time we sat next to Sammy's brother and his sound guy eating at the Fatburger.

    I've never had the chance to meet any of them but they seem to cater to the fans.

    Lucky is right. By the time I got around to checking out tix it was all sold out. Do they sell tix a year in advance or what???

    I'm fortunate enough to live in Reno and have not missed a Cinco show since they opened the Cantina. I was even there when Sammy was too sick to show up and the Mad Anthony Express played inside the Cantina. You can see me in two of the pics from that show at Mikey's web site(he, he!).

    Getting tix has become quite the event itself. Basically, you have to wait for the moment the "presale" starts(keep reloading ticketmaster) and still hope you get something. This year I was only able to get four tix for Friday and two for Saturday. Luckily my connections came through for me this year and I was able to sell my tix for Saturday night(Waborita money!).

    The only one I ever tried to get in on was the Las Vegas Cabo Wabo grand opening and my plane was 2 hours late and people were in line for 5-6 hours.When I got to the club I was offering nice crisp 100 bills for a tic only to find out once you buy the ticket they give you some wristband which can't be transfered. Now only if ticketmaster did that.
