Dead Sweethearts Ball @ Ruta Maya (02/12/2011)

Every year Valentines Day is set aside for lovers, except for one event…..the Dead Sweethearts Ball.  The night is filled with murder and mayhem immortalized by some of the best musicians in town.  The lovely Ms K keeps track of how many offed(?) as the crowd hoots and hollers at each killing.  This year, the red hue of Ruta Maya added a special atmosphere to the festivities.

You never know in advance just who all will be taking to the stage but, the core band consists of Teri Joyce, Roger Wallace, Jim Stringer, T Jarrod Bonta, Lisa Pankratz, and Brad Fordham.  “Guests” this year included Ted Roddy, Jen Miori, The Carper Family, Suzanne Van Tassel, Brennan Leigh, Noel McKay, Ruby Dee, and……well, we’re sure we’re forgetting someone.  😦

After the pictures, be sure to check out the video of Roger Wallace’s version of “Delilah” at the end.  Looks like Roger was actually grinning… evil evil grin!  🙂

Corn Ponies @ The Stardust Club (12/18/2009)

Weldon Henson was booked to play when he got a call to open for Asleep at the Wheel at The Broken Spoke. Well, he knew we loved good ol’ country and got Jenn to open for HIM at the Stardust. What fun!!

We’d been wanting to go see Jenn and the band, but never quite worked out until tonight.
