Howdy Baystockers,
We just got done with a productive work weekend.  The entrance driveway has been improved with gravel, etc. Thanks Viking Motors, Dan Maki and Greg Belanger. Just because it’s better, don’t go fast. There are slow children at play, and I mean us!
The benches in the bowl have been worked on and the seating is good. The outhouses and shower are vacuumed and cleaned, and are ready for their intended purposes. There was a lot of weed whacking and firewood gathering.  So thanks to everyone that pitched in, and we’ll see everyone soon.
Happy Baystock,

This year’s poster and swag art is pretty cool. Lana worked with new artist and came out with a great piece.

We also want to thank everyone who submitted suggestions for this year’s art, through Facebook,. Some great stuff and ideas that Lana will use for the next couple  of years.

We are getting everything ready for Baystock 2023. Lana is working on the new art for the wearables, Al’s getting the line up ready, Sue is helping me get some things to update the web site and everyone, of course, is welcome to come to work weekend, which is two weekends before Baystock.

You can start re-living Baystock by checking out the photos and videos from past years, including 2022, on the web site: Click the button below. More info to come.

It’s easy to take things for granted when they’ve always been a part of your life.  I live in a beautiful forest next to a beautiful lake and I see it everyday.  So it becomes normal.  And still most days I say to myself, good god this is beautiful.

The same goes for Baystock.  It’s a part of our lives.  It seems normal.  You see it every year.  And it’s beautiful.  This is a special gathering.  And I think you all feel it.

It want to thank everyone for coming and for helping out.  Without you, Baystock would not be possible.  It was the best Baystock ever, again.

See you next Baystock,  Al

Happy Baystock Everyone! 

Baystock 2022 is fast approaching. Work weekend is two weekends before Baystock. If you would like to help with maintenance and fixing benches, please come and get a great experience of pre-stock.

We hope to have the schedule out, very soon. so keep an eye for more emails with the schedule and other updates.

Another somber note

We lost two very special souls, this year. Both very much part of Baystock. Everyone who has known John and Ric, know that we will not be the same.

Ric Gillman passed away in April. Ric had performed at Baystock, for many years and was a huge part of the music scene, around the area.. Click here

John Gray passed away in April. John’s guitars can be found world wide. You have and will continue to hear his guitars at Baystock. Click here

Post Baystock Blues

PBD, the Baystock Blues 

Now it’s two o’clock in the morning And I’m not by a fire with my friends The stars are still out, and they’re beautiful But that always how Baystock ends

They stage has gone quiet, but plays on in my mind Reverberating, right through to my soul The ballads, and love songs, and stories in rhyme Watching people named ‘Teep’ rock and roll 

There’s nothing quite like it, you know if you’ve been And you know it will happen, again and again You love every minute, and hold to each day But then comes the Monday, and you know you can’t stay

It’s the Post-Baystock Blues, baby, and it’s kicking our asses But there’s photos, and memories, and these cool backstage passes We’ll just look to next year; it can’t be that long If you weren’t sad to leave, you’re doing it wrong

We just had a work Friday.  Mark and Moon brought a bucket truck.  We fastened the light bar to the stage post and did a few other improvements.

Work Weekend is coming up. As allways, it will be two weekends before Baystock. The plan is to work on benches in the bowl, gather firewood, weedwhacking and mowing.  Everyone is welcome to camp out with us and spruce up the woods for Baystock.

Andy has done an awesome job updating the website,, and Bill at baystocklightshow on youtube has incredible videos from Baystocks past.  Thanks everyone for helping, Happy Baystock, Al

As usual, work weekend was very successful. The sound and light booth is completely rebuilt.  It came out great.  A big thanks to everyone that helped. Carpenter Jeff and Donny’s tractor were invaluable.   

We decided not to have stage lights or music after dark, so Mike and I made an 18 ft by 12 ft movie screen and hung it from the stage ceiling.  We showed movies every night.  We showed Blues Brothers, Woodstock, The Wall, and a Grateful Dead concert.  It was a good way to feel together, still social distance or stay in our own covid pod. 

During the day on Saturday and Sunday we had some live music from the stage.  We had Super D and the Double Chucks, American Ego, the Ringtones, Al Radley solo and Laughing Fox. 

Lana had shirts and bandanas, the food court was open.  We had no showers, no Wine and Cheese, and the group photo was one guy on the stage.  No group activities.  Despite this damn-demic, we all really had a great time.   

Hopefully next year things will be like the before times.  That’s what we’re aiming for.  So hang in there, stay safe, and be kind. 

Thanks everyone, see you next year,   AL
