The Wahoo Music Fest.

Stranger Creek Band Photo - Copy (2)We got home from the Wahoo NE. Country Music Show Sun. afternoon and unpacked the old airstream and after a day of rest and recollection I’m ready to write a note about it. We had to make the trip without Garry Bichelmeyer who is still healing up from a bad fall from a horse wile herding cattle. All in all the weather was good not too hot and just a little rain Sat. morning at our nine o’clock stage time and again Sat night… so not bad. We donated all of our performances to Maggie Marx a little lady we think might have a big future in the music business and the audience seemed to fall in love with her. If anyone who was at the show has a good video of some of the performances I would like to get a copy. Leona Williams was there with her son Ron and they put on two great shows Thur. night as did Jake Simpson one of the best master showmen with a fiddle I’ve ever seen….. someone in Nashville needs to pick up his contract so everyone can hear his music. We backed seven or eight performers and had a great time so I guess you could say we had lots of time on stage. Gordon Riley and I went up to Central City NE. the previous Sunday afternoon and helped put on a show for Elton Flodman in Central Cities very nice theater. The sound was the best I’ve ever worked with in a theater setting; designed and ran by Jay Farris and we had about 300 in attendance to see Elton Flodman, Pat Boilson, Tex and Mary Schutz with Curt Shoemaker on Steel Guitar and Ken Jones on bass, Kevin Lawrence on drums, Gordon Riley on lead guitar and me on rhythm guitar. Everyone said it was a great show so we might be back next year……..
