New Years Gig in the Wild wild West...

Played bass with a group for a little party at the Expo Center New Years Eve. The warm up act was a roping competition. This is what some of the action looked like. I did not participate in this part of the evening.

Here's the band. Not quite sure what we were calling ourselves, some said "Classic Country," or the "Old Dogs." I voted for "Buckskin and the Fringe." Left to right, me, Neal, in the back Dustin, Grif and Lanny.

Does a bolo tie make your butt look big?

Too bad we were drummerless for this gig, we were provided a nice barred area behind us for the restraint of such wild men as drummers be. Nice crowd, quite a few dancers. All were very restrained on the biggest party night of the year with drunk girls waiting till 11:45 to start trying to sing with the band. Pretty good tip jar take, worked out to about a dollar an hour wages for the prep time I put in over the last month.
