PHOTO ALERT -- Bear At The Gig!

So, a black bear showed up at our recent Sangria Sunday gig at Cherry Valley Vineyards. A big thanks goes out to Lynn Redmile for her great photos! (And so you know, bears express their appreciation for music by sticking their tongues out -- it means they love it!) It might look small in the photo, but this bear was easily 250 -300 pounds.)

The Memorial Day weekend started off at the Buckwood Bistro.

JJ Peppers on bass sax, The Unknown Playwright on resonator ukulele and vocals, Mike Green on cornet and Flugelhorn.

Lady Ellen Marie showed up and did some whistling and vocals. she also goofed around on percussion. Fortunately, Bill Noren will be joining us for the foreseeable future, for the percussion end of things.

There was a baby goat from Chef Jean-Louis farm bouncing around for awhile. This lady picked it up and JJ Peppers played a serenade.

 The sangria was great, and a bear showed up. Need I say more? Okay, I will. The day was beautiful, and as a veteran who it seems can't arrested in the elitist theater world, it was great to be working as a musician all weekend,

JJ Peppers brough and played his specially designed experimental sax.
Did I mention that the sangria was great? It was!

Remember -- the tongue means the bear loves the music!

The kid in the foreground was the only dancer at this gig.

The grounds at Cherry Valley Vineyards are lovely.

We will be playing again for Sangria Sunday at the end of this month. Stay tuned to this space.
