Gigantic conch shell

#107929 2 years, 9 months ago
This guy deserves his own thread. I saw that wlewis brought him up in another thread. This guy is so nice. Like Lewis said he knows when to blow his shell. You can hear from anywhere when he does. On the first night I was feeling real good and he came up to me and put that shell on my chest and blow as hard as he can. It sent chills through my body and felt so good. I've seen him here now for twenty years. Great guy. Thanks for bringing him up Lewis
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

Thanks for letting us know atwell. Being an ocean lover that really adds to my experience albeit post wise. I was calling it the viking horn.

My wife and I call him "Conch Guy" and he rules. At a Phil & Friends show at the Warfield in 2008 I got a hold of something bad and passed out right in the middle of the floor (appropriately) during Loser. Some kind person hauled my ass to the lobby, and as I sat there on the floor trying to get my act together, Conch Guy walks by. My wife grabs him and asks him to blow the conch. He puts the business end of that thing right up to my chest and blows one long note. All of a sudden I felt like I just woke up from 12 hours of sleep, totally rejuvenated and fresh as a daisy.

Thanks Conch Guy, wherever you are!

Love his conch, he is uncanny in how he uses it so appropriately! My friends and I were saying that he most likely has a special instrument case to carry his conch, he really brings good energy!
Too pat to open and too cool to bluff...

Maybe Conch man spent some time here... Actually experience the aforementioned "conch man" @ vibes 2 years ago when he blasted that thing right by our sleeping heads. Nothing like being woken by a conch, lol.

Actually, my husband placed second in Mcleanstown's annual conch cracking competition in the visitor's category- cracked like 3 in 5 minutes time. The Bahamians all cheered with big smiles then proceeded to crack like 30 in a minute, lol. Ever try cracked conch? It's magically delicious.
