The Powell brothers, that is! But this time, they’re here to stay – yikes! Jaci and I love David & Tone – after their last short visit, she wanted to adopt them. Well, be careful what you wish for because now they’re neighbors.
Not too close – they’re a ways south in San Clemente, in a new apartment, and working at the Holloway shop there since a week and a half ago (and loving it, from all accounts).
Today, they were doing some work at the Pasadena office, a relative stone’s throw down the freeway from us. They stopped by afterward to drop off a few more instruments for my web store and showed me the finer points of Holloway set-up. My catchphrase now will be: “Has your Holloway been pimped by the Powells?”
Aren’t they adorable? Holloway house calls, even!
They had a few years of museum acquisitions to catch up on before they reluctantly headed back.
Tone could not get over the Laurenti harp mandolin (now restored: see blog of 9-21-10).
Too many instruments, so little time.
Don’t worry, they’ll be back.
Better lock the instrument cases!
Nice blog about the boys. They’re sure having fun with this new adventure. I was writing to ask if there is a video of the Harp Guitar Gathering #8 that I attended. If so, I would be interested in purchasing a copy of it.
It was so nice meeting you, Jaci and the rest of the harp guitar enthusiasts. I can see why Tony and David love it so much.
Linda – we do have a lot of nice video (with great audio) from this event, but it will take quite a bit of time before we have something presentable or sellable. It’s in the works though!
Rex James Brothers……..good to see your doing well…miss you guys.
Your old Friend
Waitaminute.. You mean I can take the Powells on a guided trip to Knutsenland??? Or have they already gone with you? Dude, it’s like a no brainer..
