Pig Creed |
TABPig Convention called "Weekend At Bernie's" is an
annual event. Bernie
is a Pig who lives in Nashville. Recently about a dozen Pigs
from all over the United States congregated at "The Room At
The Top Of The Stairs" ( A room at Bernie's house) for a few
days and we had a great time.
In April '97 a bunch of us PIGs all met in St. Louis for the
first annual TABPig convention. We all flew or drove into town
on Friday night and played (and partied) the rest of the
weekend. The photo in the gallery was from a post-concert
party from PIG headquarters (Hooter's). Since then, there have
three been more WAB's, a WABB (Weekend at Bernie's Brothers), and
a WARB (Weekend at Reverend Billys) in the UK.

who would want to look at those Pigs?)
Since somewhere around 2001/2002, the TABPig Convention has changed
from Bernie's house to the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society (CAAS)
Convention. It turns out that it's hot in Nashville in the summer
and Bernie keep's buying guitars instead of getting an air conditioner.
Whadda want for a pig anyway? If you go there, look us up!

to revision and addition at a moments notice)
just a bunch of PIGs for this stuff!
ain't got no stinkin' pride! We don't care who writes it,
where it came from, or how complete it is, we welcome all
we do care more about completeness and accuracy
than we lead on, but hey, "Bad TAB is better than no TAB"
is number three.
can't name yourself!
take the cheap shot.
