It's always good to see Adam Roehkle and Jeff Cobb, your sound and lighting is guaranteed to be taken care of.
We played the first day on the main stage and then dealt with a news man who needs to work on his interpersonal skills a little, maybe he was just hot, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt. You can judge for yourselves in the link lower in the blog. Professor Fat Knee talked to him for a little bit and then we headed back to town.
Did I mention it was hot?
Day 2 was the first anniversary of us putting the record on line.
We enjoyed the Mike and Niki Pratt wedding and had a little time at the reception, before we headed South. It was much cooler.
We followed the Hatrick, in the Elderberry Barn, we screwed around long enough for some people to trickle in after their crowd wandered off and ended up with a nice-sized rowdy group. I learned the lesson of playing with four .36 gauge G strings on my mandolin. Brock says they hurt when they snap.
After the set we once again sold all the cd's we had with us, not a bad habit to get into. I then consumed a lot of hot dogs and pizza. My one bitch about this festival, no nachos.
I totally enjoyed Hickory Moon's set in the barn and showed Professor Fat Knee how to "jump-in" to his dance moves. Hopefully he can now raise up in the Mountain Dance rankings(watch out Steve Fritz).
We headed back to town to discover the Bride and Groom still holding court at 1a.m. at Campus. I expect nothing less from the Pratt's(even after 7 hours of open bar) and was glad to not be disappointed. They both asked me what we were doing for after-bars, now that's a wedding night.
All in all, good weekend. Thanks to everybody involved with the Elderberry Festival and Rodger we'll be in touch soon.
Congratulations Micheal J. and E. Niki Pratt.
