The whole concert was awesome, and then some. Folks were waiting at the door at 6:30
when we opened them, and they just kept on coming!
Attendance was at LEAST 500, which is pretty good for Topeka.
the guys were in great form, and the crowd responded favorably.
The age range of folks was amazing, from "5 to 85".
Brad Layher, on guitar, hammerred dulcimer, and vocals
Curet, on "unique" trap set and percussion, was just a hoot! Loved getting
to talk to him a bit,
he gave my son a piece of his "stuff" that he bangs on....lol....I didn't realize how accurate a description
"bangin on stuff" really was, until my husband, who helped load their stuff up,
told me about Joe's brake drum, barbeque grill, and pasta kettle.
Jeff Weiss on bass, guitar, and vocals
is the song list:
Nowhere Else (new song!!!! WOW!!!)
Suits of Skin
My Deliverer (Crowd REALLY got worked up on this one!!)
