Following a set by Steve Bassett and Robbin Thompson, Billy Ray Hatley, backed by his Show Dogs and Big City sidemen got the crowd moving with the beat. Several brave souls even danced vigorously, in spite of the lack of air conditioning.Next on stage was Bruce Olsen’s band, which includes his son Adrian Olsen on drums. Take it from me, good music filled the humid air and a splendid time was had by young, and old, alike. Olsen was followed by Ron Moody and the Centaurs.OK, it was somewhat of a geezer-fest from the '70s/'80s Fan District pop scene. I can't remember when I've seen so many old Fan District Softball League players in the same place since the league folded after 20 colorful years of operation in 1994. Good news: Buzz is on the mend from his April 30th spinal cord injury. With a little help from his friends, he stood, onstage, to thank those who showed up. I left the party believing I'll eventually hear him on another stage, playing his sax, eyes closed ... same as it ever was.So, the event was well-attended and it was an inspiration being there. For more pictures and details from the bash, it was also a birthday party for Buzz, go to givethelovetobuzz.
