He’s In A Blues Band

I’ll Fly Away, Keep on the Sunny SideThe Cat Came BackRed River Valley and In the Sweet Bye and Bye were just a few of the favorites performed by the Festival Band on Sunday.  My husband Dave was part of a blues band that provided entertainment for our church’s community picnic.

500 invitations had been distributed to people in the neigborhood and so the band had a good sized audience to listen to the tunes they had been practicing for many weeks. One night they even rehearsed in our condo so I got a sneak preview.  Dave played guitar and harmonica and lent his fine bass voice to the group.  

The band wasn’t the only entertainment.  We had face painters, a bouncy castle, shuffle board, a magician, balloon animal making and a bubble blowing station.   The weather was fine. There were hot dogs, salads, icecream and of course…….. what no reputable  Mennonite church picnic can do without……. watermelon and rollkuchen.  

I’ve already heard calls for more performances by the Festival Band.  Who knows?  Dave may just be on his way to another career to add to the ever growing list of jobs he’s been exploring in his retirement.
