    I included this ticket stub from the Birchmere, because this live performance was the basis for a movie that is currently in the making on the life of one of the greatest guitarist's that lived, Danny Gatton. He was known by many professional and famous musicians as The Humbler, because he humbled those around him with his talent. Mike and I were in the audience that night as part of this live recording that included many local musicians to include Dave Elliot, Tom Principato, John Previtti, Steve Windsor, and many many others. When this movie finally is released, just know your Dad was present and in the audience for the musical soundtrack. He bought a souvenir that night, but I forgot what it was. Maybe you found it in his personal items. Date: September 26, 2015

    Luna Park Grille at the intersection of N. McKinley St and Washington Blvd, Arlington, VA This bar was home to many. Friends and many patrons referred to Luna as their "Cheers" bar. Everybody knew each other, and there were many wonderful times at this bar...day and night. Luna Park supported the co-ed softball team, and it's where Mike and I met in early 1991.
