Greetings..  I have been fortunate to play some great gigs lately, and it is always a blast to see friends at shows..  Thursday nights at Monterrey's have been alot of fun, and I have had special guests getting up to perform with me..  I also played there on May 5th for the Cindo De Mayo celebration..  The place was absolutely packed all night, and we had a great party..  I've been performing with Tommy Knight and Co. (The Ron Kimbleless Band) most weekends including gigs at Glendas Bar and Grill in Walnut Grove, and Hank and Jerry's Tavern in Conyers..  The crowds have been good, and the band has sounded great..  The band also features Tommy Taylor, Larry Mcdonald, and Ernie Gregory..  Ron Kimble has been moved to a hospice in Social Circle, and has been on a diet resulting in a weight loss of 200 lbs. so far..  We are all anxious for Ron to return to singing as quickly as possible..  He is a great singer, and entertainer..  I also played a wedding reception at Wolford Gardens on Ponce De Leon with the League of Decency, and have some other gigs coming up with them..  Big Trouble has been in rehearsals, and getting ready to book gigs in clubs in town..  The band features Andrea Ellis, Chris Ortiz, and Bill Stewart (Gregg Allman and Friends, Bonnie Bramblett, Capricorn Rhythm Section)..  We will be covering a very wide range of material including Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert, Gladys Knight, The Pretenders, Pat Benatar, Blondie, and others..  Keep your eyes and ears open for Big Trouble.. 
Thursday nights are still a great way to start the weekend early at Monterrey's Mexican Restaurant on Buford Highway in Doraville..  It is the home of my regular, solo, acoustic gig, and one of the highlights of my week..  We always have a great party with margarita specials, the best in Mexican cruisine, and plenty of cold beer..  The song list remains wide open, and lately has included tunes by Gordon Lightfoot, Jim Croce, Supertramp, John Lennon, Eagles, Keith Whitley, Johnny Cash, Green Day, Merle Haggard, Beatles, David Allen Coe, Drivin n Cryin, Simon and Garfunkel, Al Wilson, and others..  Music starts around 7:45 p.m., so come on down!!
Some upcoming gigs include Tommy Knight and Co. at Glenda's Bar and Grill on May 12th, and 13th..  We will also be at Hank and Jerry's on May 19th, and May 20th for the BIRTHDAY BASH!!  I will also be throwing another birthday party at Monterrey's on May 18th for the folks who can't make it to Conyers on the 20th..  I hope you will make it to one of the two..  Both parties will be alot of fun!!  I will be playing with the League of Decency at a private residence for a party in Buckhead on May 13th during the afternoon..  We also have gigs in Columbus on June 13th, and at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens on June 17th..  I also have some solo acoustic gigs coming up..
MOTION  will be performing at Motorheads in Mcdonough on May 26th and 27th..  Get ready to rock with tunes by Journey, Foreigner, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Van Halen, The Cult, Head East, Billy Idol, and others..  The boys are back in town!!  We also have gigs there in July, and August..  Start making plans to rock with MOTION...
