This Past Weekend in NY & VT
Mon., May. 3. 2010 11:22am EDT
We had tons of fun at our concerts this past weekend in Binghamton NY and Bennington VT. We've played in New York over 30 times, but it was only the third time we'd ever played Vermont. Then again, the second time was only six months ago (after a 10-year lull), so that's pretty good progress.
Our progress home from Vermont was slightly impeded, however. While on I-90 near Buffalo NY, there arose such a clatter, we sprang from the bus to see what was the matter. At first glance, it appeared that all of our tires were still intact, but it turned out we had blown one of the inside dual tires.
Thankfully, we were near a rest stop and it was covered by AAA. The guys were able to eat lunch while we waited for the mechanic to arrive, and we were back on the road in about an hour and a half. Praise the Lord!
Here are some nice email comments we received from Saturday's promoter:
Thank you guys so much for coming. You guys are great and such a blessing. It was great getting to know all of you. We had such a good time. Here's some fan email we received afterward, too:
Bill said everyone who came out to the table after the show was very impressed, and many of them were asking when you guys were going to come back. I've already sent an email to Mrs. Lloyd this morning asking her if we can do it again next year!
I also have to sent you to post, the picture of my grandmother with you. She told me to make sure to get it to you so it could be on the website -- 80 years old and her first rock concert. Again, thank you guys so much, all of you!

Does J. have a separate dresser for all of his T-shirts? His plethora of shirts might surpass Stevie Nicks' collection of dresses! His wife must go through a lot of laundry detergent! :)Special thanks to:
It was great seeing you guys last night (in Binghamton). We always enjoy your music and chatting a little after the concert. Keep spreading the Good News!
