Here we are performing at the Farmers Market in Vancouver. It was 48 degrees and raining at the start of our two hour performance. Eventually it stopped raining, but the temperature dropped. Here we’re picking and grinning our way through the song “Hawaii Tattoo.” Check those green shoes!

An enthusiastic crowd materialized at our Vancouver WA Farm Market performance 6/11/16. Their energy combined with ours to produce audience acclaim. With our foot-controlled drummer we had a complete band sound. The photos below show how my did-it-myself guitar matches our look. A big wave ~ to our audience !
We performed acoustic guitar renditions on Friday Jan 8, 2016, at Burnt Bridge Cellars winery, 1500 Broadway, downtown Vancouver Washington, to a large and enthusiastic audience. Mark of Burnt Bridge graciously provided us with the best viognier white wine we’ve tasted (pronounced vee-on-yay). This wine is complex, fruity, brut and mellow, with not even a hint of harshness. Just like our music.

We’ll sing Vancouver Monster Mash–with our own comedy lyrics about Vancouver–at the Farmers Market on Saturday Oct 31, 12:30pm-2:30pm. The location is downtown Vancouver, near 6th and Esther Streets. We’ll be under the tent.
(added later on 10/31/15): We performed in driving rain today. We enjoyed it, and we turned up the volume a bit because that made things cheerier. We were under a tent, but we were standing in water as we played and sang. At the start the rain was a drizzle. Our tones were astoundingly gorgeous, and our renditions of Walk Don’t Run, Apache, The Munsters–and our Monster Mash vocal–received wild enthusiasm. The rain gradually rose and when we left we were soaked. The photos show the guitar duo, Monster Mash chorus singer Sandor, and soundman Kirk.
It’s a gorgeous place for dinner and wine in Battle Ground, Washington, and even more sumptuous with our lovely tones. We began at the lowest performance volume we ever used, to permit conversation among the diners. The large sliding doors to outside were closed because of the outdoor heat. As the evening progressed temperatures outdoors moderated, the sliding doors opened, and diners moved outdoors. We notched the volume up a bit, and that suited what was now a larger venue, and we were rockin’.
