Playing A Show July 3rd For Independence Day

I am pretty excited about this. My band, Fire on McGinnis will be playing a 4th of July show on July 3rd at the Rendezvous bar.

Some of you who are not from Juneau Alaska might be scratching your heads and wondering; why on earth should he be excited about playing a show the day before the 4th of July? Well the answer is this. Because in Juneau its light out most of the day this time of year. The only time it gets dark enough to celebrate Independence Day in Juneau is at 12:01 AM on the morning of the 4th.

I have always had a good time playing shows at the Rendezvous and I am looking forward to this one. So if you happen to find yourself on Franklin street celebrating the holiday come on over to the bar and celebrate with us!

Fireworks In Juneau

Like last year the city of Juneau put on their fireworks show at 12:01 AM, July 4th. They do the fireworks at that time because it’s dark enough to see them. Just about any other time is to light out. For the first time since I have lived in Juneau the weather was great this independence day. My pictures turned out a lot better then last years also.
