The Gin Palace Jesters have not been idle during this recent stretch of wintery weather. Far from it. Boss Jester Dave Sisson took time out of his busy music schedule(Jesters, Three Blue Teardrops, the Lawrence Peters Outfit, Al Simon) to hole up in the wood shop and re-build our legendary showbiz mic stand. Pix of the process appear on our Facebook page. Also Ken spent more than a month without his beloved Martin acoustic guitar. It went to Zach at Third Coast Guitars in Chicago for a once-in-decades overhaul. It is back and ready for action. The band itself spent some quality time in the rehearsal basement in preparation for our appearance on Friday February 28 at Fitzgerald's in Berwyn. We are tan, rested and ready.
