Great Show!

It's always a pleasure to play the Central Florida Fair and tonight was no exception. Thanks to all who came out and listened to the band.

The last set was changed up a little.

This was the first live show that my daughter Casey was able to see, and it was a joy to have her and her mom there. Also, one of my dulcimer students, Haley, came out with her brother Harrison and her mom Laura. There was also the man, John Beedle, of Beedle Promotions, and a number of good friends who came to hang out.

Afterwards, I got a much-needed spin on the Zipper and will be going back tomorrow for even more food and fun. The fair is where it's at!

Thanks again to everyone, most especially the band; it was a great run tonight!

Aloha -
