July 4th with the Strat Kats...

The Strat Kats played this afternoon at the local July Forth Festivities. We were the second band, played pretty good even with brutal temps that had us all sweat soaked. Left to right you have Larry on guitar, Danny on harp and guitar, Mudbelly on bass, Runt on guitar, Dan on drums, Miguel on flute, sax and percussion and of course...

... Mary on washboard. Sound guys making us loud had plenty of washboard in my monitor. Not complaining, Mary is rock solid, I have had worse in the monitors.

Wait a minute, looks here like that washboard is looking at music! Not fair, my side of the stage did not have music!

I guess me and Dan did ok today, bass amps and drums same for each band to simplify set up, we did not have the advantage of our endorsed products, closed back Fender speaker cabinets and Sonar drums. Hey, can I get by wearing that shirt as a dress next gig? Pretty long, pretty short depends how you look at it.

Many bands played, only heard the first before us. Me Mary and Miguel lit out and played at church after this. Then I mowed the yard till the rain stopped me. such is rock and roll.

Thanks to Ruth for pictures with my camera, might get some from her camera later.
