Thanks to Brian Gormley for the snaps below. (and thanks to Barbara Gormley for finally coming out to see the band!) It was hot in that tent and we gave it our all. Several folks commented that they could see my tattoos through the sweat-soaked sleeves of my shirt.
The band did a great job. It was neat having Pete Reichlin on tuba and JJ Peppers on all the saxophones, including bass. Pete's going to be playing a lot of gigs with us from now on.Mr. Peppers also played a metal contrabass clarinet from the 1920s, which was a first for us.
Anyway, the folks in Frenchtown loved us! Thanks to everyone who came out for it; and mucho thanks to Cleo Sharplin who founded the fest and organizes it every year.
And the night before Riverfest, it was First Friday in Philadelphia. You haven't seen a city that loves ithe arts until you've seen Philadelphia on a First Friday. Here's what North 2nd Street looked like at 8 pm:
Working Class Bohemians will be playing on Friday October 7 right in this same block a Jules Goldman Fine Art and Books. Details very soon.
