|1/80||John Bendele Band @ Spring Ho Cook-off # 100_0717|
The opening night of the annual Spring Ho BBQ Cook-off in Lampasas. This was also the first year they'd had live music and once the sun had set so the temperature dropped a little, the crowd showed their appreciation by dancing the night away.
It was also the first night the long-awaited CD was available. There was a rush in the crowd for that! After all, not only is the band great....the drummer is a home town boy.
We even got a picture of the next generation Perez drummer!
There were a couple of guest performances. A member of the audience sang Waltz Across Texas for us. Albert Sr. treated us to some great accordion on several songs including Kevin Fowler's Senorita Mas Fina.The dance 'floor' was dirt, uneven, and had rocks in it....but it didn't stop the dancers!
Albert went a little crazy on his drum solo and was into Wipe-Out before we knew what was happening. Then, his dad sat down and treated us to one more!
