Many thanks to the folks who put on this great festival for having us play!

To the right you see us playing our first gig in a cathouse! Actually, this was the Evergreen State Fair Kickoff dinner for volunteers who help put on the fair each year, held in the building where cats are on display during the fair, which is held each August in Monroe, Washington.

Bob & Joe still play with Filé Gumbo, but in this case it was Gaby's first official gig playing a whole show with us. She did also fill for Rob Moitoza at a concert on Bainbridge Island a few years back, and has been sitting in on the Trio gigs for years, as well as playing some Okie Doke shows, and the Honky Tonk Sweethearts gigs.
