I just posted the following info on the home page:
Friday Music is offering a newly remastered 180 gram audiophile vinyl release of the Tommy Bolin Band’s live performance at Northern Recording Studio in Maynard, MA on September 22, 1976. This recording is taken from WBCN FM’s master radio broadcast tape in cooperation with the recording’s original engineer George Lilly. Special thanks to Carter Allan and WBCN FM, Boston MA.
The album will be available on February 24, but is available for pre-order at the links below. The Friday Music pre-order is on sale at the time of this post.
I did get confirmation from Johnnie Bolin this morning that the Bolin Fest will be on Saturday, August 5 at the Ickey Nickel in Sioux City. I'll try and start the promo and info page I do each year going soon.
Can't believe nobody answered Patrick. 1st week in August. Sioux City, Iowa. If you check the other posts you will find the info Patrick.

when and where is the 2017 TB music fest?
Greetings to All: I have a story you might like. I was at the local super cuts last week to get a cheap cut. A 20-something year old girl is assigned to me. As the process starts, she asks me if I have plans for the weekend. I say, "yes, I'm writing a book on someone I'm sure you never heard of, but probably you've heard of the band he was once a member of, Deep Purple." She responds, "Oh, Deep Purple, which one?" I say "Tommy Bolin." She says "I know who Tommy Bolin is!!!!" I say how's that possible? Her response: "I have cool parents." And so the conversation went from there.
I was really blown away that such a young girl could know TB. I took it as a great sign.
I'm currently half way through my book manuscript now. Three chapters and an introduction are now in completed rough draft form. I have two more chapters to write, and then a conclusion.
I just need a few interviews ...
RIP Elliott Rubinson, owner of Dean Guitars and Ddrum. He passed away last night. I met Elliott when his company debuted the USA Tommy Bolin Tribute Teaser guitar at NAMM 2008. Nick Simmons designed the Teaser guitar and he was also at that NAMM. They later collaborated on the second Tommy tribute guitar, the Tomikazi. Nick passed away in September of 2015, so both of those shining supporters of the Bolin scene are gone now. Elliott was also the bass player for guitar superstars Michael Schenker and Uli Jon Roth. I don't know of another guitar company owner that played out as much as he did. This is such a shock, as was losing Nick.
