7/22/2016 HA Brewery, Eureka, MT

23 Jul

Back at the HA again this time the room I was playing in was loud and full of people talking because the weather was a bit iffy. I had a great night and HA was packed full of people. It gets a bit loud when there are so many people but despite ringing ears at the end of the night I was happy.

This was the 14th year for Linda and I doing sound and me playing at this fantastic art fair. We met an older couple from Texas that had a vendor booth selling really cool painted tiles. They said, “We’ve been doing this for 19 years and this art fair has the best music and the best sound of anywhere we’ve been.” This was a great lineup for music this year and I enjoyed being a part of it and of course playing. We had a rainy day on Friday but it didn’t stop the show. A clear plastic shower curtain on top of our board (no tent) and plastic on top of the speakers and no problems. It was nice to not be roasting in the heat, I loved it. The summers used to be cool and sometimes rainy here in MT five years ago – like old times.

I always love playing on this outdoor stage when the weather is great and it was tonight. We always get beef brisket and fried okra before I play and we probably will next time as well. There was a great crowd here tonight and I had a great time playing. The owner said that “you never know what this guy is gonna play next, I really like it” referring to my playing acoustic and electric, jumping from folk to reggae to rock, originals and covers. I do love changing it up as it keeps it interesting for me and the crowd and I love all kinds of music.
