Cowley's / FRIDay January 8, 2016
First (Second) Friday
So back in December Free Beer Bass Player Jeffery Broomyer and Rachel had our band's baby, Oksana Christine Brookmyer! We are all so proud and it was a real treat to bring Oksana up to meet all her Uncles and Aunts for our first gig of the New Year at Cowley's. She got her first (of many) pictures with the Sock Monkey and everyone got a chance to hold her. First Friday (which was actually Second Friday) celebrated the many many birthdays falling on January 8th and 9th. So we played the music of Elvis Presley and David Bowie, both January 8th Babies. We played nothing for Richard Nixon (Jan 8). Plus we celebrated birthdays from Denise and Ann-Marg-Roc (Jan 8th) and Teresa (Jan 9th). One strange thing did happen. There was a group from Germany sitting in the front row who insisted that we play Black Betty from Ram Jam. Didn't actually know it, so we lipsynced it. Everyone seemed to enjoy it just a little too much.
