Monday, July 17, 2006 HOLY COW WHAT A GREAT GIBNEY'S GIG LAST NIGHT!!! I don't even know where to begin...Thanks to everyone who made it out to the acoustic melee at the Gibs' Sunday night! It was a rockin' time with no shortage of magical moments...beginning with our Gibney's sing-along of MEET THE METS to welcome MET slugger Cliff Floyd to the plate at Wrigley field last night. Cliff responded with a GRAND SLAM, only to be followed a few hitters later with ANOTHER GRAND SLAM by Carlos Beltran!!! With such an auspicious beginning, I should have known it would be a night to remember. The Greek Song followed next, accompanied by an outstanding demonstration of traditional Greek dancing by our very own Sammy! Russell then blessed us with an acoustic rendition of The Humpty Dance, followed by the long-standing Gibney's tradition of Jules and Dave delivering a heart-palpitating performance of U2's One. Harmonica Matt, a newcomer to Gibney's, surprised everyone when he busted out a harp to join in for Willie Nelson's Mama, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys, much to the delight of his friends, Steve and Jill. Finally, thanks to Kevin, Richie, Jamie (Summer of '69), Tara (The First Cut), Jessica (Me and Bobby McGee), Mike (Sweet Home Alabama), and Anna (Suspicious Minds/The Gambler/Sweet Child O'Mine!), for making the gig such a memorable event!
