"Cowboy Church"gig yesterday

Monday, June 13, 2011

Our group had a unique experience yesterday when we played for a "Cowboy Church". It was different than most churches in that it was held in a rodeo arena. There was people there with small animals and most wore cowboy attire including hats. The hats were removed for prayer. We were well received but but we were ready to run when the preacher announced to us that after opening prayer they would bring in the snakes. He then told us that he was just pullin' our leg. WHEW! It was quite a experience to say the least.

I have played semi professionally a number of years and taught for several years previously to that. I play banjo for "Yeller Dawg" bluegrass band since 1999. My style is Scruggsy with traces of Dillard, Crowe and Munde. I enjoy traditional and contemporary bluegrass. I am into all things banjo including building/ restoring and inlaying and am also a founding member of L.O.S.T (luthiers of S.E. Texas). I also enjoy trivia about bluegrass in general and especially banjo players. My avatar is my new license plates for my old chevy truck. My other hobby is amateur radio and have had the call K5BGZ since 1955.
