“So, you think that you’re lonely…


If that doesn’t go straight to the heart, I don’t know what does.


A sudden sense of urgency, possibly danger and concern.


No matter what I might say about being independent and not relying on others, I’m a social person.


A lifetime of joys and pains, “Ya, I’ve been there myself."


But there is real comfort stored up in our hearts.


Memories of the sweet days and sweet ways of being there for each other. “We do not stand alone”.

Blue Collar Bar is about finding comfort in the familiar.

My people – the importance of finding my people, my place.


And the need to belong.


I think that explains a lot of the craziness right now – people want to belong one way or another. It can be a positive thing or a negative.


The neighborhood pub is a home away from home in some communities.


Just being able to relax and kick back, and giving yourself permission to do it.


A lot of things are clawing at you for your time and your energy.


Places, people and music recharge the batteries.


Here’s Tim Seay singing a song we wrote called “Blue Collar Bar.”
