No, we do not do that, but I think I will bring it up. We are hired by the local HOA to put up flags for them for their HOA flag lease program.

Great way to do something that helps pay for scouting and teaches them community service and patriotism. Got another flag day coming up I believe

Yes. It was a free show and it was fantastic. In an age where many musical acts rely on gimmickry such as autotune, stage effects and strictly choreographed dance routines (and thus, are lip syncing), here is a band who just gets up an plays. And every song at every performance is just nailed. It amazes me that they can do this so well.

It was also nice to see a very talented group before they hit it big, and I suspect they will. During a break, I could see the guitarist simply walk out into the crowd to the restrooms without being accosted. And this was followed shortly by Rachel Price doing the same thing with the same effect.

And they were approachable after the concert, signing CDs and chatting with some of the audience. They thanked us for coming and I was sure to thank them for coming.

My ex likes singers like Shirley Bassey and the Gypsy Kings. So I sent her this link.

It is a Chapman stick; Dale is probably considered to be one of the pre-eminent players and is simply an all around awesome human being and musician who has been performing professionally for decades as a solo player and member of Tacoy Ride and leader of the Broke Ensemble.

This was filmed at The Winspear Centre here... it is a beautiful venue and acoustically marvelous.

The first time I heard Dale perform it was with Tacoy Ride, a local band that has been going for 40 years and they are as tight as they come... The Broke Ensemble is a newer project that is equally great.

A little impromptu solo work...

How things change.

I saw them this weekend, again at a free festival. Instead of driving themselves in a Chevy van, they had a 50foot diesel rig. The crowd, despite a smaller metropolitan area (Lancaster vs Pittsburgh), was about ten times the size. I didn't see Rachel try to navigate the crowd. But the guitarist did. And he was immediately hit up for autographs.

There were some new tunes as well. Maybe a new album before too long.
