What does the CDB and the Village People have in common?

CDB in CA: "The Charlie Daniels Band, Tower of Power and the Village People will return to the San Mateo County Fair, which runs this year Aug. 11 to 20.

Other entertainment acts will be announced closer to the event, which this year celebrates San Mateo County's 150th anniversary."

Charlie keeps the bartenders employed...and clogging

Chick wins $25,000, job in Nashville bar: "Country music giant Charlie Daniels must be pleased with how well Kassie Miller dressed up his old hit, 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia.'

Her greatest concern as she entered 'The Ultimate Coyote Ugly Saloon Search' competition in April was learning to clog to the bar's signature dance song.

But over the course of the reality series on Country Music Television, the 23-year-old Brewer High School graduate nailed it to match her bar flairing, singing and bartending skills. At the grand finale in New Orleans, aired Friday, she won $25,000 and a job at Coyote Ugly in Nashville, where she started work the next day."

Charlie Daniels Band plays party barge

The Post and Courier | | News | Charleston, SC: If you were not at the get-together Thursday night on Shem Creek, you missed what was most likely the party of the year in the Lowcountry.

The invitation-only bash included a laser-light show and tons of Lowcountry food, including ribs, fried quail, mustard-fried venison, shrimp and Frogmore Stew.

Still, the biggest highlight was the Charlie Daniels Band, which played from 9 to 11 p.m. on a barge anchored in the creek in front of the Big Game Billfish Bar and Grill site, formerly home of the Trawler seafood restaurant.

Developer Richard H. Coen of Mount Pleasant had planned to throw the party to celebrate his wife's birthday in April. But he couldn't quite get everything lined up. So he used the bash, called "Ease into Summer," to celebrate Sally's 43rd birthday and to thank family, friends, business partners and employees involved in his new project, a 166-room hotel on Shem Creek named The Landing.

"'Everybody had a good time. It just went too quickly,' he said.

When the band finished playing about 11 p.m., the partying still wasn't done. Coen invited anyone he could catch back to his house for shrimp and grits."

Get to know that dude!
