The Kelly Richey Band at Thunder Bay Blues Festival

The Kelly Richey Band at Thunder Bay Blues Festival

We had a blast this past weekend at the Thunder Bay Blues Festival!  The Thunder Bay Blues Festival staff were super nice– we’d like to give a shout out to say THANK YOU– we really enjoyed ourselves!  The weather was perfect and the crowd was amazing… the festival was located on the Northern shore of Lake Superior — wow — what a view!

Everything was great until the drive home… the water pump went out in the van and we were stranded just outside Duluth, MN.  A wonderful family (Linda and Mike Rosin) who lived across from where we broke down were kind enough to give Rikk and Tobe a ride to the Duluth airport to rent a car so they could get home to their families– and Sonya and I stayed behind while the van was serviced.  Thank you Mike and Linda! Your kindness and helpfulness were very much appreciated, and we will be sure to “pay it forward”!

The van broke down on Sunday — it’s Tuesday and we’re still stranded, however, the van is scheduled to be finished by this evening and we should (fingers crossed) be on our way back to Cincinnati by tonight.

Thank you to all who came out to see us play in Canada.  We look forward to coming back–  see you down the road!
