The first LouieFest at Cheney Stadium, Tacoma, WA. I forget what year but it had to be about 2000. The goal was to have 1,000 guitars play "Louie, Louie" at the same time. Our guest conductor was Paul Revere, of Paul Revere and the Raiders. The turnout was around 750 guitarists, but it was fun and subsequent LouieFests had increasingly falling numbers. I was with Dave "Evan" Lewis and Brian "Tough Jim" Trainer. You can't miss me. I'm fifth from the right in the front row wearing a white t-shirt and bluejeans. Okay, me gotta go now.
