MIKE FOURENS MEMORIAL & JAM SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 5 PM @ ALLIGATOR ALLEY.
Our dear friend Mike Fourens passed away suddenly this past Tuesday morning. The funeral service was Thurs. afternoon 4/5. As this happened unexpectedly most did not have enough time to say goodbye, pay their respects or even find out about it until my post last night.
We're going to have a Memorial for Mike Sunday afternoon and evening. There will be a complimentary buffet of his favorite foods. Meatball parmigiana sandwiches and NY hot dogs as well as some pasta & marinara sauce (vegetarian), and perhaps a few that he wouldn't even consider....LOL. (Mike was a picky eater.) As a sound engineer he was known for his skill, attention to detail, great ears and honest concern for the project or show. He was also well known for liking to have a good time and added life to any party. Doors will open at 5pm with the buffet coming out at 6pm and the jam starting around 6pm, continuing until midnight. A plethora of craft beer, wines, sake and other drinks will be available.This weeks regular Sunday Jam will be dedicated to Mike featuring your host Kilmo on bass and Drew Preston on guitar along with one of the great drummers usually on the gig as well. Any musicians attending are more than welcome to join in so feel to bring your axe, amp or anything else you like. We'll celebrate his life remembering some of the stories and events we shared with him. RIP Mike.
