We had a blast stopping out to “Old School Country Night” at the Moose Lodge in Canandaigua, NY this past Thursday. Yep, the Moose Lodge, on a Thursday night. Them folks know how to throw down.
The house band was on fire, consisting of Eddie Lee, Steve Waldo and Jeff Weed from Closing Time, Ken Riber from Cold Steel and Jimmy Duvall from Ghost Riders. There were many other musicians in the audience as well. The crowd was way into it. Young and old, fast and slow dancing, traditional cheek-to-cheek and free-form whatever.
The boys in the house band invited us up for a handful of songs. It was great to have Jimmy Duvall on steel for most of our tunes. We came off stage with big ol’ smiles on our faces. Too much fun.
Needless to say, we plan on going back, and we’d love to see you there too. It’s the 3rd Thursday of the month, and you can keep tabs on all the details by following Brian Chase’s Facebook page, or by staying tuned to WBEE 92.5 FM here in Rochester. Brian is a good friend from The BEE, and he is a tireless supporter of local live music. Thanks Brian, for all of your support, and for inviting us to check out this great series!
