God is Great Beer is Good and People are Crazy
Over the years there has been quite a few ownership and slight name changes at Legends Road House but no matter who runs it, the Tuesday night jam always seems to get started up. Shout out to Jewels and Tyler for setting that in motion – they are the original owners of “Legends”. They took over Sweet Basil and made it a fun burger joint atmosphere.
Currently, Jane and Bruce West are getting good jam sessions going and some great musicians have been joining them.
Since I had my friend Aimee’s cart while she was away in Texas, I decided to get my friend Rosemary and go support Jam Night. That night the musicians were: Jane and Bruce West, Christiaan Van Schalkwyk, Eddie McQuire, Brent Butcher, Christin J, and drummer David Campos.
The title of this post comes from the lyrics of Billy Currington song “People Are Crazy” which Brent sang that night as well. Somehow hearing him singing those lyrics seemed for this write-up and in general reference to this island. Both beer and crazy people (not always the bad kind either) are often common denominators. As far as God or a higher power goes, often trusting in that helps you get past the crazy and survive this often challenging environment.
Thankfully there were no really crazy people there and a handful of us just did the good kind of crazy shaking it out on the dance floor. Jane who was the band leader happily took my requests from their 2-page song list for “Louie Louie” by the Kingsmen and “Twist and Shout” by the Beatles. I challenged my beauty stylist friend Carole to a twist off and lost, she works out too and has good balance. It was a fun way to practice what my nutritionist Thai has been teaching me about changing your physiology through positive motion.
Both Rosemary and I agreed Legends Jam night was just what we needed to lighten up and let loose a bit on the dance floor.
taco Tip #9
Tip the band well, especially in low season. Your musicians are as much of a factor in your good time as your servers and Belikin Beer or whatever you are drinking. Stir in a few friends on a Tuesday evening and you have a Fun San Pedro night that ends at a decent hour – Legends Jam Night.
One Last Thing
If you are in town tonight there is Janes Birthday Jam party that is worth going to especially if you have been tired of being cooped up in the rain. 6:00 – 11:00 pm. Since it is a special event people are welcome to bring a nibble food or appetizer along for the grazing table, but it is not mandatory.
See who is attending Birthday Jam on Facebook Invite.
