River Rhythms

So, despite feeling a bit crappity, crap, crap, I went to River Rhythms on Wednesday.
I had no idea who the band were.........just wanted to get out & about.
We met Gary over there and discovered that the band were called.........wait for it.............

Reverend Raven And The Chain Smoking Altar Boys.

Personally, I think we should have reported them to the 'Trade Descriptions Police'.
The Reverend Raven was like no clergyman I have met..........and considering I myself belong to the clergy - I do.........I should know one when I see one.
And, the Chain Smoking Altar Boys may have been chain smokers but they were definitely not boys and hadn't been boys for many a long decade.

Here is proof in case you doubt my word as a minister.

Anyway, they were not to my taste.
They are apparently a well known Milwaukee band.
They are very good was all blues with a pinch of jazz thrown in.
They played their own songs, which, of course, we had never heard before.

We stayed for a couple of hours by which time, I was getting tired and Philip was thoroughly bored. It was good to see Gary though. We gave him the 5 Card Studs t. shirt we bought him.
He has strict instructions to wear it next week when they are at River Rhythms.
We have them too so it should be a bit of fun.
That will be the last River Rhythms free concert for this year. It is always tinged with sadness as it heralds the end of summer for me.
I suppose we shall be thinking about Halloween soon. I have noticed the spooky stuff in the shops already.

Gary did bring me an interesting clothing catalogue.
Remember this is Wisconsin.
The sizes were as follows.

X. Large

Oh I bet they sell way more Amples than Smalls around these parts.........or those parts for that matter.
