Here's little ol' me standing in with a group called Left Coast. Left to right Mikey Burns, Jerry Gontag on guitar and Tony Irvine on steel drum. This was taken at American Legion post 416, Encinitas, Ca. for our annual Jimmy Buffett party...as a point of interest please note the painting behind us with the MIA/POW flag behind it. That was painted by Drew Cottril, one of our members, and he donated the artwork to the POW/MIA committee for the now famous flags! Cheers and aloha, mikey.
