Big John Bates and the Punk-a-Billy Strippers

Charles Smith manages bands.  And makes wine.  We stopped by his warehouse to catch Big John Bates during the Wine Bloggers’ Conference, and took a few photos of the band and its Live Strippers in Action.

Beam Me Up, Stripper!

Starting to strip…

Got ass, will dance…

Come On, baby, light my fire…

All that’s left of the strippers…the dress.
