Cowley's / Tuesday March 17 2015
St. Patrick's Day
3PM rolled around and we packed up our gear from the tent at McGuckin's and headed north to Cowley's in Farmington. Ahh, this is more like it. We got there and Shawn Riley had finished their set and were loading out. Nice and warm, lots of people still there but a little room to add some more. Most of our friends were already there and it took no time to set up since we did that already on Monday night. As soon as we kicked into the Irish set the dance floor was filled. Marcel had brought his fiddle. Jim was doing a set with his old band Superball so Marcel filled in. Even when Flynn came back, Marcel stayed so our ranks had grown to 8! The place really started to get full around 7PM. Then all bets were off. Full dance floor, crowded back, plenty of gals in green, beer and whiskey flowed. Suddenly we looked around and realized we were in the middle of our 5th set of music! We looked over to the bar and saw the Cowley's staff still ready to serve but clearly worn by the battle. They gave us the "cut" sign. Yep, time to play our last song. It was 11:30PM on a Tuesday night. The bar was still full, people were still on the dance floor. It was Tuesday night. We finally had to tell people to go home. Only on St. Patrick's Day.
