IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Hello Music Friends!

I will be finishing out October with a really fun, private Halloween Party this Saturday night at Pointe West in Galveston.

Here is a quick look ahead for Senor Beans music in November:

Nov 3rd, Tuesday 6~10, T-Bone Tom's Backyard!!  Please join me for Happy Hour from 5:00~6:30PM, dinner and a night of good music.  The food is awesome and the atmosphere is Tropical!  Great way to spend a Tuesday night celebrating 7 more days until Monday!

Nov 6th, Friday 6~10PM, Noah's Ark in Bacliff, TX
That's right!  6 ~ 10!  This is usually a 7~10 gig, but I am throwing in an extra hour's worth of tunes because this is the annual GBPHC Pity Party.  A large group of folks are headed to Key West for the weekend and the rest of us are celebrating at Noah's out of heartfelt sympathy for them, because they can't be here with us!  Open to the public!  Beautiful view of Galveston Bay and great folks to hang out with.

Nov 7th, Saturday 6~9:30PM, The Neches River Wheelhouse in Port Neches, TX
ROAD TRIP!  The Wheelhouse is located on the banks of the Neches River and adjacent to the city park.  Beautiful setting, nautical view, the best food in town and a world class Palapa Bar!

Nov 19th Thursday, The Mine Shaft in San Antonio TX
Happy Hour with the San Antonio Parrot Head Club.  A great night of good food, music and Tales From Key West- MOTM!  If you are in the SA area please join us.  This is a wonderful group of folks and you are welcome to sef the evening with us checking what Parrot Heads are all about!

I am available for booking on Nov 21st, then it's on to December.  I have the first and second Saturdays available.  The party season is booking up fast so please let me know right away if think you might need my services.

Happy Trails!

Bug needs a new floor. It had 4 if you count the sticky tile that was still there. Since I hade to scrape it off to find the nail heads I'm counting it. And to whomever invented the cursed screw nail, a pox on you!



a history lesson from my friend Ron
In 1272, the Arabic Muslims invented the condom, using a goat's lower intestine. 
In 1873, the British refined the idea by taking the intestine out of the goat first.
