Steve, my wife was born in McKees Rock, that's down by Pittsburgh. We live 90 miles north of there now. I remember the steel mills. All business's are gone from all over PA now. I have a close friend who's wife is from China. He's from Clarion and a great steel picker. Steve Porter, he's on the events and runs the jams. I think the world of him.

Hey Stevepo, I would like it if you included my name on your list. I live in Ohio but it would take me about 20 minutes to get to Jamestown, PA. Would love to come to one of your get togethers!

Mark, go to the events section, and there is our next jam for March 19th. It will tell how to contact Steve direct with e-mail, and phone number. He is a super person.

Jim Reynolds, I bought my first quality steel at a shop in McKees Rocks. It was a single neck green MSA. When wego back to visit, in the summers, I visit a classmate friend in Mars, PA., also north of Pittsburgh. Steve t

Steve, I know where Mars is too. Charley McVay has a Music Store there. He and his Dad built the McVay Steel guitar. I guess they were a really nice guitar, heavy, but nice. Steve Porter has one. I've seen it, but never played it. Took a few lessons from Charley Jr, and he play on the Wheeling Jamboree. WCKY. You may remember it, out of West Virginia. Then there was a Dr. Mantel I got Chelation Therapy from in Mars, for my heart. If you ever come home give me a call. I'd love to talk with you. I'm in the phone book, of Franklin, Pa.

The home of the "Eternal Tap". Yes I've heard of Straubs. A great beer and "Amber" being my favorite at this time. Unfortunately kind of high in carbs for a diabetic but one once in a while is real good. Very Happy . I'm from northwestern Pa. In Erie county in the town of North East.
The Allegheny Steel Guitar Association is having a jam this coming Sunday, March 19th. Look for details in events section.

Jim Reynolds,
I am actually hoping to get to Mars this summer as my best High school friend lives there. If all goes well and I fly back to the USA in June, I will get in touch with you. Hoping your health improves. I did not know about the music store there, so thanks for the tip. Stevet

Yes, it is right off hwy 19, in a little shopping plaza, and is called McVay Music. I'll looking to hear from you. I think it might be called Cranberry, Pa, but I get off at Mars Exit from I-79,go right, toward 19, at light turn right, and it's down there, about 1/4 mile. Jim
