One Day -- TWO Gigs!

Wow! What a great way to round out a Thanksgiving weekend. Steve and Kathy got back from New Jersey Friday evening, we had a quick practice, a good meal, and made plans for Saturday.

On Saturday morning we met with our Official Band Photographer, Casey, and carpooled to downtown San Antonio to play at the Houston Street Fair. Our gig was at 1 o'clock. We set up in Alamo Plaza with the North Wall of the Alamo at our backs. We played a combination of Christmas music and songs from our CD. The crowd was friendly, and Rudy, the chief organizer, asked us back, so we must have done well. We even sold a couple of CDs, and met some new friends, Greg and Lupe. Oh, and thanks to Dana of The Lewis and Clark Expedition for dropping our name in Rudy's ear.

After a quiet afternoon that featured a nap or two, we were off to our evening gig. We were returning to WineStyles in Stone Oak, for the second of what we hope will become regular "last Saturday" gigs. The breeze that kept us cool in the afternoon, was chilling everyone by evening, so we set up inside this wonderful emporium. We featured our entire Christmas repertoire, which has grown from four to 13 songs since last year, and -- of course -- we played and sang the songs that our fans have come to enjoy so much. Tim and Bob Nationals Leigh-Anne, Beth and Matt were there along with Loretta, Toni and Malcolm, and Twyla and John. All in all, a tiring but wonderful day.
