Bus Woes Nix Last Weekend's Shows
Mon., Jul. 25. 2011 12:01am EDT
Due to sudden, unexpected problems with our bus, we had to cancel last weekend's concerts in Utica NY and Portland ME.
Our bus had been in the shop to have its alternator fixed, and that appeared to be routine work. The people who were fixing it were specialists, but they took longer than expected, and it wasn't finished until Thursday afternoon, after which Keith took it to our mechanic for installation.
The mechanic called Keith Thursday night and told him there were major problems with the "repaired" alternator; it wasn't holding a charge and was leaking. Unfortunately, the bus could not be repaired in time to make it to last weekend's concerts.
The bus should be fine for this weekend's concerts. We hope to reschedule last concerts for another weekend.
