It doesn’t seem possible that it’s October already, yet here we are. It’s been a great summer! Shady Drive joined up with Matt Riddle on keys and the fabulous North Coast Horns for shows at Brothers’ Lounge, Shooters on the Water, Bullfrog’s Sports Cafe’, Brookpark Home Days, Halloran Park, Catawba Island Club and Family Tavern. We’re looking forward to joining with the North Coast Horns again for our annual Thanksgiving Eve show at Bullfrog’s, along with Tony Koussa Jr. on keys! Make plans now to be there!
Fun times this past week also at the CMC Jam and last night at Park Tavern! It was definitely not a warm summer evening, but with the help of several patio heaters and fireplaces and some very dedicated fans, we were able to heat things up! Big thanks go out to Lisa, Karen, Chris, Daryl, Amy, Dino, George, Chris, Dawn and Dan for braving the chill to join us on the patio! We had a blast!
Coming up this week…
The Cleveland Music Club – CMC Jam happens every Tuesday at Bullfrog’s Sports Cafe (33137 Center Ridge Rd., N. Ridgeville, 8:30 – 12:30). This week’s hosts are Becky Boyd, Mike Dixon and Tim Hamman!

Full backline (two guitar amps, bass amp, Sonor Drums and PA) is provided, so bring your favorite axe, sticks or just your party attitude and dancin’ shoes and come join the fun!
This Friday night, Shady Drive returns to John O’s at Clay’s Park (13190 Patterson St NW, North Lawrence, Ohio, 8pm)! This is our last show there this season, so you can bet it’s gonna be a PARTY!! We’ll be rockin’ the house from 8 – 11pm so don’t miss all the fun! C’mon out and join us!
