    Talking We're in the battle of the bands!

    My one classic rock band has been chosen to be one of the 3 bands in the South Mountain, Pa, battle of the bands at the Arentzville fair! All contestants get local music store gift certificates and radio station promos. It happens tonight in the auditorium.
    We'll all do 1/2 hr. sets with, we hope, no duplicate songs.
    Here's our varied set list(supposedly in keeping with the radio station's music):
    You Wreck Me
    Hey, Joe
    Mama Kin
    On the Hunt
    Sin City
    Houses of the Holy

    Results in tomorrow's follow-up post....

    Must've been 120F on that stage, everybody sweat like pigs, guitarists were running out of towels to dry hands and frets...I gave up, hoping I'd be able to hold onto my sticks in spite of it all.

    There was only one duplicated song. We did it first and better but for the vocals:
    Mama Kin.
    Who would've figured on that?

    Thanks for all the positive comments!

    Hi, that is brilliant!!
    We came in second place when we did a battle of the bands. It meant there was one band better than us on the night, but we were better than 28 others we had beaten over the heats
    You won a lot more than we did too!!
