Saturday, July 29, had us booked to perform at our monthly Ore House gig. We were looking forward to playing yet were a bit concerned about the possibility of rain showers between 6 & 8. We setup in an area that is covered yet still outdoors then opened the double doors into the tavern and began to setup. lt’s a little challenging to balance the sound well when you’re playing beneath a metal roof but Rocky did a fine job of our sound.
We had a really great crowd show up, even at the tail end of a two-week heat wave in Az. You can’t be a sissy and live in Az in the summer. Anyway, we enjoy playing some tunes at Sue & Jerry’s Trading post with Zoomer and Buzz, both harpists. Well what do you know? They both show up and have their harps in different keys, ready to pop-up on stage and do a few tunes.
How about an informal “Battle of the Harps” our lead guitar player Rocky asked? Let’s do it! What should we play? Let’s try the standard “Route 66”. I mean, we are in Arizona, aren’t we?
Our heart-felt thanks to Zoomer and Buzz for giving a very spirited performance. Also, a big hearty Thanks to our ever-growing fan base as well. Then a special Thanks to Penney from Oracle who happened to video the performance. WARNING: she sometimes swears when she is enjoying the music.
We perform the last Saturday of every month at the Ore House Hilltop Tavern in Oracle Az from 6-8 pm. Rocky will then keep the party going while playing DJ with his extensive collection of downloaded music.
