Edward Burns Jams with Skum!

It’s been a few of years since Actor Edward Burns‘ band ‘The Blue Jackets‘ opened for Coldplay and they haven’t played live at all in the last two years!

After the permier of his new film ‘Nice Guy Johnny‘ Friday night at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival Ed told Hart and John “I’ve been itching to jam”.

“Say no more” said Hart and a extremely rare Skum practice was arranged where Ed was invited to sit in.

The guys rocked rocked into the wee hours playing a some of The Blue Jackets favorites but Ed, an accomplished guitarist in his own right, had a little trouble keeping up with Eaton on a couple of Skum songs.

Skum Does Denim and Diamonds!

On Saturday night Skum lead singer Hart Baur and lead guitarist John Eaton joined forces with the Miami Heat‘s Udonis Haslem in his annual Demin and Diamonds charity fund raiser. This  year’s event was a Vegas style casino theme and it didn’t take Eaton long to jump into the fray.

“I love poker and this was for a good cause,” said Eaton. When asked how he did, Eaton replied, “it’s the kids who won tonight.”

“I just want to give back to my community,” said Haslem. ‘This is my town and I’m proud to say that.”

Haslem then cleaned up at the poker table leading Eaton to comment with a laugh “‘there must have been some home cooking with the dealers!”

The room was filled with celebrities such as Dwyane Wade, Mike Miller and several other Miami Heat players. A crowd of over 500 turned out and  for the event, and fun was had by all.

“I didn’t see Clooney and I heard he was showing up,” said Baur. “He owes me a beer from the Super Bowl. I figured he pay up tonight. if anyone sees George on South Beach tell him he owes me!”
