Y'all were amazing. Indian Island Winery has had good artists before, but y'all put them to shame. Listened to part of the CD on the way home and can't wait to hear the rest. I have it on my calendar for your return in December. I know it ain't Jazz, but can't wait to hear her on the 5 string. I know Lestervwill be proud.

You guys rocked the Sievers Corn Maze!! We saw the 3 piece outfit; tuba, banjo and the front end of a model-T. I was on a date with an amazing guy but listening to you guys play was the best part of the day. When you got into the second chorus of the fourth of July song I wanted to sing along at the top of my lungs like I did with my sister when we were kids. If you ever come out with a record I will buy it at least once. Thanks for the memories!

You guys rocked the Sievers Corn Maze. Tears came to my eyes when you entered the third chorus of "When the Saints Come Marching In". Some kid had an Abraham Lincoln stove pipe hat made out of electrical tape and I couldn't help but think that if ol Honest Abe was there he would have said "Yes, this is what I envisioned America could become". The banjo player was smokin and the "wash-ford" player was hitting all the notes. I was glad I was wearing dependable shoes because you almost knocked my socks off. Please keep playing that sweet, sweet music.

Can't thank you all enough for making the trip to Toledo for our 2nd Grugel Fest. It was great to hear your vocal harmonies and tunes that not every other band plays. Wishing you continued success at keeping our music alive so that others may enjoy it's rich history.

I've been a fan since WAY back. I wish your group continued success. Ted, I think the idea we discussed is worth the effort:
* Find out who decides who to invite for Mankato Songs on the Lawn.
* Ask your e-mail list from this site to ask that person/those people to invite your group to play in 2011.

I saw you had a website at Rockin'the Quarry. Just wanted you guys to know that you are a definite hit at our Paddlefish Days celebration in Madison Lake. This year the organizers were very excited that you were available. We appreciate the upbeat style of your music! The music you bring to the table (or flat bed) is unbeatable! Thanks!
