We had a ball on First Friday in April celebrating Chazz's pops, Chuck Bessette, better known to many as Cannonball Jones! Chuck came to us after retiring from a lifelong career as a diesel mechanic last month. He will likely be heading back to the Pacific Northwest in the coming months so we wanted to celebrate with a very special acoustic performance featuring Cannonball and the family band: Erin Martinez, Chazz Bessette, and Naomi Bessette.
Chuck back when his nickname was Braids!
Circa 1972 Chuck was an OG hippie living in his van at the beach, surfing, playing guitar, and multi tracking in his van on a reel to reel machine.
A man and his van!
