Flower Girl audience participation

For years, the best audience participation during our version of The Rain, the Park, and Other Things has been Enoch’s Pub in Monroe and Fitzgerald’s (the pub area) during their American Music Festival a few years back.   Many great ones, but those two were singing ALL the background parts loud enough so we could hear them at least as loud as our monitors.  No offense to the previous champion title holders, but the folks at The Red Dragon in Baton Rouge last Saturday knocked it out of the park!  Ha! Get it? Park. In an inspired moment, Russ and I felt this triumph should be captured on film.   We told the audience we were taking their picture at their moment of triumph, so voila! Here it is for all to see.   That’s one of my dearest friends, Linda Twilley, in blue, jumping up in the moment of victory.

Despite feeling like I was falling off my chair all evening because of a bout of vertigo I’ve been having, we had a wonderful time.  It was an amazing audience in a wonderful venue.   The venue is owned and run by Mr. and Mrs Maxwell.  Sort of like our non-profit record label, Threadhead Records, they host concerts in a building that they keep up because they love music.  They give 100% of the ticket sales to the artists.  They rely on some regulars to help with the electricity bills, bld. taxes, etc.  Wow.  If you live in the area and are not tapped into the mailing list, do so immediately!  Stacy Earle and Mark are playing there this weekend.  Bill Kirchen is playing there soon as well–with his band!  “Don’t miss” shows for sure.

Enoch’s in Monroe has similar owners in Doyle and Yvette who have been providing a place for artists to play in North Louisiana (good for routing dates on I-20)  to artists for the past 31 years.   Giving at least 100% of the tickets sales, and relying on bar sales to stay open.  Great weekend with great people.
