CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER FORUM ® .......A photo-intensive technical reference file and ongoing newsletter regarding the original fiberglass Chris-Craft Commander series. This is an independent not-for-profit and non-commercial web site, not affiliated with the Chris Craft Commander Club ~~ or ~~ Chris-Craft Corporation. Our mission here is to "have fun and share information" about the Commander series (and those associated fiberglass boats on the Chris-Craft family tree) for your individual personal use, and by doing so help promote the good name of Chris-Craft, and help preserve, restore, and appreciate Chris-Craft boats. The main reference feature is the ever expanding MASTER INDEX File which contains what we believe to be the world's largest collection of documentation photos and technical information on the Chris-Craft Commander line of boats, (like these original brochure scans, featuring the iconic first 38 Commander styled by Fred Hudson, and many of the great Dick Avery renditions that followed) , (a huge collection of Chris-Craft 427 tuning and specification information), and a few words about how to use the forum.

We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common !

Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers........heading to Nashville

April 7 2012 at 9:30 PM

Well one of the things you get from this web site based in Nashville, Tennessee, is a bit of music now and then and this is one great band that is up and coming, soon to rock the charts bigtime. They are presently playing clubs and rather small venues in California at this time, but mark my words, this group will go very big very soon. Tim Bluhm was born too late to be a member of the Grateful Dead, but he would have fit in just fine,

A tip of the hat to John Kloka for the awareness that lead to a little leak of info, that Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers will be in Nashville in September. These guys will take Nashville (and the USA) by storm. Their material is getting out slowly, mostly via their own amateur videos shot with an iPhone in a van that they are driving around while singing. Pretty clever because it is essentially free publicity.

Here is a video of The Gramblers, with their lead singer.

enjoy,

Paul

Right on!

April 13 2012, 7:27 AM 

Hi Paul,
Amazed to read this since I was just watching their van videos last week which led to others including Nicki doing an incredible performance of Emmy Lou Harris', Luxury Liner. They are going places in more ways than one. Nashville isn't far from Atlanta...
Best regards,
Craig

Yes indeed.......

Well it takes all kinds, you know how some people, no names need be mentioned, would get up on stage and do all that jumping around, gymnastics, pyrotechnics, and then sing (poorly), and then you see someone like Mark Knopfler just walk up flat footed and blow everyone away with raw talent and no showmanship.

These guys are not necessarily raw talent, but they are simple, good, clean, and very refreshing. By the way, I do appreciate the note you posted about these folks awhile back, it lead me to a direct connection and a firm appearance date here in Nashville, so I'll be able to hopefully see them in person.

They are bound to start raking in the cash, and I wish them all the best.

regards,

Paul

~~~~~ UPDATE ~~~~~

July 17 2012, 2:22 PM 


Well you guys know what wise investments I make in boats, motors, marine equipment, and all, and also by the fact that I have managed to save at least one cent out of every dollar I ever made. So now comes my investment portfolio for the future, trading in music talent right from Nashvegas Tennessee. If I could, I would put money down that Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers are going to skyrocket into the stratosphere of fame and fortune. I just hope that when they do they are able to keep their feet on the ground and stay the way they are now!

I understand today that they are headed for Tennessee, I hope Nashville is on the circuit, and I will be first in line if someone just sends me a nice private note, hint hint.

regards,

Paul

FROM THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

Album review: Nicki Bluhm, 'Driftwood'

Rock

Now that Nicki Bluhm has become a minor Internet celebrity thanks to her band's van sessions, in which they perform spot-on covers of '80s pop hits by Hall and Oates and Whitney Houston while driving across country, what better time to reintroduce her sweet-sounding sophomore album, "Driftwood"? Originally released in digital form last year, the record gets a physical release this week, and fans of sun-speckled '70s-style Americana will certainly want to take notice. With a little help from husband Tim Bluhm of the Mother Hips, the San Francisco singer-songwriter channels influences such as Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt in easygoing tunes such as "Jetplane," the twangy duet "Stick With Me" and the B-3 driven "Kill You to Call." She sounds just as good in the studio as she does behind the wheel.

Mark, get a plane ticket for Nashville !

July 17 2012, 4:12 PM 

Hi Mark,

Funny, our messages passed one another somewhere between Tennessee and Ohio in satellite territory somewhere, at the same time. I just sent you a note about the same thing. In any case, thank you kindly, maybe you want to schedule a trip to Nashville then? I have a cigar tasting and dinner scheduled for the same night, might be able to do both actually. I am dead set on getting tickets, just hung up the phone with the venue and they are not on sale yet, so I will be bird dogging that one evey day. The place is only a few blocks from where I work, would not want to do it at night however. It is a standing only venue, the place will be rocking.

Regards,

Paul
