WOW!!!  That was some turnout at Johnny Ray’s last Friday night!!!  Don’t think we’ve ever seen so many people in the place, it was jam packed to say the least…the patio, the back room, bar area, etc. was just jammin’ and slammin’ all night!!!  We were digging the vibe to say the least…we really appreciate ya’ll coming out and thank you for making it such a fun night for us!  The AC couldn’t keep up with the body count or the hot humid weather outdoors…scores of folks were working up a sweat out on the dance floor!  As always, a very special thanks to John, Ray, and the very overworked bar staff that night for their generosity and hospitality to the band.  We return to Johnny Ray’s on Friday, Sept. 11…mark your calendars, we’ll do it again!
