"Embrace the Chaos!"

The month of May..where do I start? The month was mostly a blur. We had our usual ECPHC monthly meeting at a new location, Harry T's. There was our Crab Island Mambo "Sex on the Beach" party after the beach clean up, a crawfish boil at the Tipsy Turtle, Bobby and Darla's annual Memorial day party and our usual impromptu get together's.

We also had our big "Trop Rockin Rocky Bayou" Backyard party with over 130 friends there to listen to Brent Burns and Jerry Diaz and Hanna's Reef. We had a special treat when Eric Stone showed up and did a few songs. Then the next day Bwana Ray played at Anglers Beachside bar. The month closed with "The Teddy Bear of Trop Rock" John Friday doing a Sunday show at KC's Sandbar and Grill in Ft. Walton Beach.

Get rested up as we don't plan to slow down!!!

Enjoy all the pictures.
