    Great little Sandwich Shop turned listening room. I will be playing songs that couldn't have been written by a man younger than myself.

    Kurt Michaels does a set starting at 9:00 and I will do my set at 10:00. I'm looking forward to bringing you more songs that a man younger than myself could not write. Fun, humorous and occasionally serious.

Q: Lance, I'd like to play Buzzards in Love up here in Minneapolis.....How can I get the chords? janetskidmore56@gmail.com

A: If I send you an .mp3 of the song would you be able to extract the chords from it? I would prefer that to working up a chart.
