Hug Hug Kiss Kiss Ta Ta Andrew McKeag! The Presidents of the United States of America's Andrew McKeag Gets a Proper Send-Off to California at Slim's Last Chance Saloon

The amazing Jeff Fielder and Kurt Bloch send Andrew off in style 

Last night the lucky few who packed a sold out Slim's got treated to a once-in-a-lifetime all-star jam! Even though I only recently became familiar with Andrew, his presence in the Seattle music scene reaches into so many areas that I probably still don't quite have all the information to write a "proper" blog on him. All I know is that if that was my send-off party, I'd have a huge smile on my face this morning! It's very clear that all the work he's done with Musicare, School of Rock, and the many musical projects in which he's involved has paid off big time in the 'love' department, because Seattle LOVES this guy!
