Triple Rock was AWESOME! We really hit a groove and the crowd gave us so much to work with, we could have played all night if they'd have let us. The staff of the place was so wonderful, from the sound man to the bar tenders, everyone was a pleasure to work with.
We had a little room backstage and during the show everyone was walkin' back there, between their sets, talkin' about how lucky we are to be able to do a tour like this. We ARE lucky. It was a big ole' love fest. :)
After the show Jim Ward and I worked out a little rendition of Rainbow Connection which we performed last night at The Aquarium in Fargo, ND. The whole crowd whistled with us! It was joyous. The show was so much fun, again. GREAT crowd.
What a nice town. We got a chance to go have a hot meal at the lovely home of some friends of Chuck Ragan... mmmmmmm... pot roast. We got to hang out with their youngins and colored and watch Kung Fu Panda. Hahahaha! It was a BLAST. Everyone was so warm and hospitable.
I found it very endearing that so many of the folks in Fargo thought they had ugly accents when they spoke. For the record, I LOVE THE FARGO ACCENT!!
So, this afternoon, we got some bad news. We have to cancel the show in Denver, CO. I don't know if y'all saw the news, but there's a crazy blizzard there right now. We have to go to Salt Lake City for the show tomorrow, anyway, so we're just heading there instead. It's a total bummer. We have to drive through the blizzard, too. Jim Ward just pointed out "It's like being on a ship that's headed into a hurricane. It's in the back of all of our minds and the ship is creakin' a little louder than usual." Lucky for us, Greg is at the helm. He's the best bus driver either side of the Mississippi.
Anyway, I hope the folks in Denver, and anywhere else this storm is headed, are keeping really warm and cozy!! We'll be sending you lots of good thoughts today!!!! And, we're sorry we have to miss you. :(
Salt Lake City, or BUST.
