  • Going to be in a 2nd line parade tomorrow

    Our friend Danny Chauvin from Colfax CA passed last week. A transplant from Louisiana Danny was a well-loved figure in the Mother Lode. He had a long-running radio show on KVMR devoted to Bob Dylan (All Dylan, all the time!), and was a good friend and supporter of my daughter who is also a KVMR broadcaster and has a cafe in Colfax.

    In Danny's memory, we will parade down Main Street in Colfax tomorrow at noon wearing high-struttin' clothes and hats and playing Rainy Day Women # 12 and 35 (Everyone Must Get Stoned) which was the theme for his show. We have many stringed instruments, a trumpet, trombone and tambourine and I'll be playing snare drum!

    F*** 'em if they can't take a joke!

        Hey, it was great! We had a trombone, guitar, several tambourines and shakers, a cajon, 2 bodhrans, my snare, a bass drum, banjo, and other stuff, and everyone sang. We were about 50-60 strong, started at one end of Main and marched down the street and up to the community center where a vast pot luck was spread out and about 200 folks sat down to eat while a bluegrass band played. Then folks got up to tell Danny stories and express their love and loss. Rob Bonner got up with his guitar and led us all in "I Shall Be Released," then more memories, and then it was over.

        Danny was really one of those special people who have a twinkle in their eye and spread a positive vibration where ever they go. He and his wife Julie shared a deep and true love in which they respected and cherished each other, but didn't insist one be an appendage of the other.

        Dang.

          Sorry for your loss Bob - but it sounds like a great send off.

            Yeah, I'm a firm believer in celebrating the life, not mourning the death...sounds like your friend Danny got a proper farewell!

              When I die, I want to be cremated and my ashes sprinkled on the dance floors of every club in town.
