Last minute gigs

Greetings,
How can it already be the end of November? Time is racing by. We’re relieved that the election is over and happy that Barack Obama will be our new President! We have high hopes!

We’ve had the opportunity to play some really nice gigs this year. Last month we were asked to play with our friends at a memorial service for Olga Kolbeck who owned the Old Faithful Geyser in Calistoga for many years. She passed away just before her 93rd birthday. She wanted more of a party than a memorial service. We were able to get the whole band including our favorite fiddler Terry Ann Gillette to come and play at the Geyser for a couple of hours. It was a beautiful setting and a wonderful celebration of Olga’s life. People even danced, which Olga would have loved.

We’ve just been asked at the very last minute to play for the Mountain Volunteer Fire Department’s party at Mountain Home Ranch, in Calistoga, from 2:00 to 6:00pm Sunday Nov. 30th. They recently got a new Fire Chief and a bunch of new volunteers and have reason to celebrate! The community is welcome to come to this potluck party. For more info call Suzanne or John Fouts at Mountain Home Ranch 942-6616.

On December 5th we’ll be joining our drummer friend David Chapman, who will be playing with his band, The David Chapman Band, at a free family dance put on by the Chamber Of Commerce at the Calistoga Elementary School from 7:00 to 9:00pm. We’ll be playing a few songs with his band, when we’re not dancing!
Hope to see you there.

We hope you’re all well and had a nice Thanksgiving. Enjoy the rest of the season!

Peace, Lindalou and Michael
