Great Night for Busking...

Thank you Lufkin. We had a great night busking on the street corner of First and Angelina in the shadow of the old Perry Building. We had a good crowd, made some tips, the drinks from Standpipe were cold and the food from Old Souls was hot. 

You might think this is a bad photo of Cathy, mouth hanging open and all but actually she is singing an acapella tune by the late Steve Fromolz, "Hobo Bob." We saw Fromholz some years ago and he asked if there were any requests. Cathy called out for Hobo Bob. Steve said "I don't remember it." If you come see us play you will hear Hobo Bob. Fromolz is dead.  You can't get that song anywhere else. 

Thanks to the friends that came out and saw us. Thanks to the young man from Seattle who stopped by to listen and said "this is like people do at home all the time." Maybe the selfie he had his friend from San Francisco take of him playing the tambourine with us will go viral or something and we will get famous. Thanks to the Sound Techs bicycle team for riding by and hollering "Freebird." Made the gig real  because for some reason most people figure out after hearing Hobo Bob that we are not going to play that tune.    

Third Saturdays. Street busking downtown. The City of Lufkin is giving weirdos, freaks and hippies a chance to rule the streets. Thanks to mainstreet director Barbra Thompson for organizing this. Call her up and put your act in public.
