A Convergence at Jazzfest 2011

Alumni from the 80s gathered recently in New Orleans for Jazzfest 2011 and, as Chris Webster put it, “pretty much partied like it was 1999.”

Pictured here at the convergence are fraters (seated) George Stenger and Chris Webster and (standing) Jerry Holcombe, Galen Bales, Steve Levinson and Ralph Gomez.  George came from Birmingham, Chris from Golden,  Jerry from Portland, Galen from Tegernsee Germany (!), Steve from San Diego and Ralph from Boston.

They saw Bruce Hornsby Friday night, The Radiators Sunday, and all kinds of folks at the Festival from Robert Plant, who arrived via UAL not on a private jet (and they have the photograph to prove it), Jeff Beck, John Legend to Tom Jones.

That it was Steve’s 50th birthday only added to the reasons to have a good time.    ”"I’m not 50, I’m 18 with 32 years of experience!”  Steve noted.

“It was the jazzfest Trifecta, ” Jerry wrote, “music, food, drinks, lots of laughs, and the cookie incident…. oh yeah, that’s five tings mon.”

Chris remarked that the food in New Orleans “wasn’t bad either.”
