John, Ben, & Boomer Xmas Party @ Giddy Ups (12/17/2017)

John, Ben, and Boomer always play at Giddy Ups the 3rd Sunday of the month.  Always a good time with good friends.  So, since it’s getting close to Christmas, everyone decided it was a great time to have the Christmas party.  So, friends showed up.  Everyone brought food…..and we all ate…probably more than we should.  😏   Most of all, we enjoyed the music and the friendship.  Be sure to watch the video, too….you’ll enjoy it!  😉

Later, OTB Karaoke set up.  Our very own Ms. Nancy and Ms. Jen did a rousing version of Jingle Bell Rock!  Of course, YouTube found a copywrite on the song.  We can play it but don’t be surprised if an ad appears.  If one does, you can bet we aren’t the ones getting paid.  Evidently, when you have purty women singin’ a cool song, it’s gonna be noticed.  😉

Ben Rodgers @ Hill’s Cafe (10/07/17)

Saturday night and we headed over to see Ben at Hill’s Cafe.  We’d met him a few weeks ago when we stopped in at The Broken Spoke to grab a bite to eat but, never seen his show.  Being close to home, this was a perfect chance.  What fun!  Ben sings the songs that brings back visions of cowboys, cattlemen, and the old West.  He also gets the audience involved… when he tried to get us up to sing with him.  That wasn’t gonna happen!  But, he did get other members of the audience up and they did a great job….including the young lady to “taught” to yodel.  When the little ones came in to see what that cowboy was doing, he showed them rope tricks.

We know we say this a lot, but…..really…..if you have a chance, go see this guy!
