Okay. The word is out. You can dance to the music of the Ginseng Roots Band. Check out Lisa and Mike, who simply showed up at the Pattenburg House this past Sunday after clicking our band page on Face Book. Big thanks to photog Lynn Redmile for the snaps!

 Ths couple was seriously swinging!

Meanwhile, Lady Ellen Marie showed up and did some whistling along with the band, and some dancing, too:

Mike Green joined us us on the band stand for the first time, but certainly not the last. His cornet and flugelhorn playing a nuanced and sweet. He's going to be with us on several gigs, including our upcoming Memorial Day PIG ROAST at the Buckwood Bistro. on Saturday May 28. Mike Green is standing on the left in these photos:

Here are some cool shots of Mr. Bass Saxophone himself -- JJ Peppers:

Mike Green with band member Chris McMillan -- where else do you hear double flugelhorns:

Here's Lee "Thunderstix" Scott on monkey skulls, cymbals, cow bell, and pots and pan lids. This is our "secret sauce":

Between the bass sax and Thunderstix on our original percussion kits (designed by JJ Peppers and Uke Jackson) we got the novelty music thing going on -- all day and all night!

And here's the Unknown Playwright on brass resonator ukulele and vocals:

Thanks again to the Pattenburg House for having us, and many many thanks to the dancers for turning out, to Lady Ellen Marie for whistling, and to Lynn Redmile for the photos! .
