Nashville, June 2009- Music City Invaded by Elks!

Nashville, June 2009- Music City Invaded by Elks!

We attended Mike Tepee's biannual Music City Guitar show this past weekend and as usual, hung out with some cool people and loaded the 'Elkmobile with some great gear. This will be the first half of our usual show report because Lee got a new camera for his birthday this year and now all of us regular- height folks will get to see the world from a giant's point of view! Without further adue, it's on to the report....

  • Photo 1. Nashville by night. Lots of tourists, music, traffic and people speaking with a Southern accent. I'd say if you're from the South, you might call this place heaven!
  • Photo 2. There are many street performers in the Music City and this particular guy could actually play! He'd get on that slide and look you dead in the eye as if to say, "I gots 6 kids and if you don't hit that tip box, there's gonna be some smoke in the city". Believe me, we hit the tip box....
  • Photo 3.
  • Photo 4. The Knoxville, TN. Rotary Club sent a group of regional representatives down to Nashville for their quarterly convention. By day, these girls were mild- mannered Rotarians, doing whatever Rotarians do but by night, they were grinnin' wildcats on the hunt for middle- aged knuckleheads with cameras. We put ourselves into extreme danger to get this shot from such close proximity but, in order to properly represent the peril we face to bring our 'Elks the best gear available, felt it was worth the risk. Even though we were in extreme danger of being overtaken at the moment this picture was shot, you should have seen the smiles on our faces. No challenge is too great to undertake for leaders of the mighty 'Elk Nation!
  • Photo 5. Solo Southern girl- does it get any better?
  • Photo 6. From Beauty to the Beast- here's our boy Dino with the only known "Limeocaster" on the planet. This guitar was supposedly unearthed from the estate of a miniature horse farm owner and part- time Kentucky Derby jockey that had recently passed away. Dino's currently trying to get permission from Fender to pursue an endorsement deal for these guitars with Mini- KISS....
  • Photo 7. Here's a triumphant Morty Kong Fuey with Dennis from Leaning Dog Guitars. Seeing that he was heavily outgunned at the front door of Tepee's guitar show by the Godfather himself, Mr. Kong Fuey took matters into his own hands and resorted to the high- risk and heavily reviled "parking lot deal". Dennis is smiling because he got $20.00 in cash and a case of transmission fluid for his trouble. Mr. Kong Fuey is smiling because he got a cracked- headstock, refinned '67 Mustang bass stashed away in the water tower in the background. To foil the acquisition of Morty's ill- gotten booty, Lee stole the step- stool Morty used to reach the first rung of the water tower ladder. I'd say that old Mustang's pretty waterlogged by now and we'll probably be in the back of the room at the next Orlando guitar show.....
  • Photo 8. The city of Nashville decided that, in a proper tribute to the King, they would levy a new tax on their citizens and hire a guy to hold the wig down on this statue. This gentleman spend his formative years as the original rhythm guitarist for Three Dog Night and has now found gainful employment as Nashville, Tennessee's official "Hound Dog Hair Holder". He may be smiling in this photo, but if you get too close to "The King", this ferocious mane manager whips out a CO2- powered can of jerri- curl activator and sprays you in the face. He also had a hair dryer that looked like a .44 magnum as backup, so we didn't get too close. Once again, we take on danger so you can live vicariously though us!
