Loves It...

A singing duo I met through my daughter Katie played the Standpipe in Lufkin this week.Here's a photo of Jenny and Vaughn who call themselves Loves It.

 I first met them and saw them play in Chicago. I think there's a blog post about that if you use the search function.  After that gig we got to ride back through Chicago past the crowded clubs around Wrigley Field in a camper van full of us, guitars and the dog Boxie. This trip I did not get to ride in the van but they followed me to my house where I put them up for a night before they headed down for a show in New Orleans.

 We spent a bit of time. looking at my cigar boxes and visiting before we had to hit the sack because of a busy work day for me and a long drive for them. Nice to have some funky musicians in the house to appreciate the CBGs. There's a few musicians I know who give barely a passing glance to the boxes and act a bit like old Mudbelly he's not too serious bout this music stuff. As Todd Snider says, "well either I am or I am not."
Here's a clip of Loves it. 
Speaking of the cigar box guitars Jenny and Vaughn will play a gig soon in Florida with this group, Hym for Her who make wicked use of cigar boxes. I happen to have on of their cds. Here's a video of Hym for Her.

Now you might think it's pretty wild having a band stay at your house but they were perfectly nice. Boxie did not bark. They made the bed and only asked important questions like who would you use for transmission work and which way to New Orleans.
