Thumbs-up to Steve Jaschke and his crew at Steve-A-Reno's Rock and Roll Blues Bar for creating the best and only venue in Victoria specializing in rock 'n' roll and blues entertainment. It was good to see regulars checking out the local and regional talent, with nationally recognized artists showing up for some of the parties.

Best wishes to Steve and all in their future endeavors and to those who enjoyed playing and listening. There are hopeful signs that some of the other venues will pick up where Steve-A-Reno's left off. Hope it all pans out.

Terry, Victoria
