The BIG 200th ....

I wanted something REALLY special to write about for my 200th posting on this blog.

Wow. "Squirrel Nut Zippers" at the Music Farm the other night.

What a rollicking, bounce around, toe-tappin', foot-stompin' good time. Found myself in the middle of the dance floor as bodies gyrated to the music and swirled all around me. Jimbo Mathus had 'em dancing in the aisles - and every where else.

There even was a Conga line snaking through the crowd.

Over in Mt. Pleasant, at A Dough Re Mi, a last minute venue change brought us Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band for even more foot pounding music.

The Rev's wife - Breezy Peyton - attacked her washboard with a passion and her gloved hands were flying with thimbles on her finger tips. Brother Jayme was on drums.

The last time the trio from Indiana was in Charleston, they played at the Map Room.

"We must of had 200-250 people there. That was a really great place to play."

Their new CD is titled "Whole Fam Damnily."
